Bitcoin is a digital asset and payment system with a market valuation of over $913.1 billion as of December 2021. Many people believe it to be one of the most successful digital currencies ever developed. In October 2021, the first bitcoin exchange traded fund (ETF) was formed, propelling the cryptocurrency to fresh all-time highs.

This combination includes complex derivatives, actual stock digital tokens, and pre-IPO contracts.

Bankman-Fried made news when he donated more than $5 million to current U.S. President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign. He is a vegan from California who describes himself as an effective altruist — someone who optimizes his social influence across a wide range of societal endeavors.
