Two of the biggest alpha males that exist are Devin Booker and Donald Trump. Is Devin Booker an alpha male? I yeah yeah have you I like Devin. I don't I casually he's pretty he's pretty alpha. Doesn't doesn't he uh date Kendall Jenner? No they broke up. See I'm really behind him. Yeah and all this stuff. Yeah he's he's a single man. Is Chris Paul still playing? Yeah for the Warriors now. No he got traded? Yeah he got traded. See I got we got Bradley Beal on our team now that we play as Chris Paul and he's been hurt so Bradley Beal might be coming back tonight. Chris Paul's had one of the longest NBA careers it's amazing. All right so Tyler people are mad. People are upset, they're demoralized. Yeah I think we've seen on Twitter I was just telling you before the what's going on on Twitter. I don't I don't have it's a war zone TwitterX .com and it rightfully so because it's uh we've got everybody is like astonished still this is like now like we're like four elections deep uh since the like people started paying attention and now they're like astonished at how how do we not have this stuff figured out and the RNC you know as a member of the RNC that represents the state of Arizona everybody that listens to the show knows that we've been the most observant and critical of the things that the Republican atmosphere isn't doing the right way and that starts with the RNC. You can't say it doesn't start with the RNC it has to start with the RNC but it's the NRSC, it's the RGA, it's the NRCC.
A highlight from Generative AI News - Anthropic, Amazon, OpenAI, ChatGPT, Bard, and Many More - Voicebot Podcast 354
"And maybe with Gemini, it gets even better. But I think it's like really competent right now. And so people don't talk about BARD as much. I think they have more of a perception issue than they do a capability issue at this point. As long as Google avoids social media, they're pretty good at what they do. OK. So hey, everyone, this is Game, the generator of AI News Rundown. We do this every week. We've done this every week since February of this year, just to like run down the top stories. Eric and I are writing a lot about these. We talk about things that we don't write about, all sorts of different things. But we try to give you a little bit of the story behind the story. If you're on LinkedIn or you are on YouTube, just give us a like if you haven't already. We appreciate that. If you're on YouTube, like follow us, like do a subscribe as well. We do this plus a lot of other things on there. So we try to try to bring more info to the market, things you don't see generally. OK. Oh, and we're going to do, we'll do winners and losers of the week towards the end. So if you're thinking of like who the winners and losers of generator of AI this week are, put them in the chat or just tell us you're here. All the all the other stuff, like get engaged. We love that. All right. You want to talk about Meta? You mentioned it very briefly. And like, yeah, it's pretty wild. Tell me about what's going on there. Yeah. I mean, essentially, I mean, you know, Meta has played around with this before, as I mentioned in the article, and it didn't necessarily go very well. But now they have essentially their own version of a chat GPT style assistant chat bot that's accessible through so many of their through their various Facebook Messenger, Instagram, and including their the Ray -Bans smart glasses that they have and their new the Quest 3 VR headset. And yeah, much like chat GPT, it's supposed to just be a conversational assistant that can answer your questions and handle everything from planning trips and doing recipes and things like that. But and it is good and useful, including, in fact, some generative AI images, image generation and other elements that are sort of tossed in there as well. But beyond that, they're looking ahead to this is what is Meta good at or what does it have a lot of its as influencers, it has social media. And so they're also putting a bunch of generative AI chat bots that are celebrity backed and, you know, they're making fake bios for them and everything. But the idea is that they're sort of domain limited in the sense of they each have a thing that they're good at, but they have the personality of a celebrity behind it in terms of not just their the image, but also the the character and, you know, everything from talking about sports with a Tom Brady created character named Brew or talking about lifestyle with a vlogger named Billy who's played by Kendall Jenner and my personal favorite, a choose your own adventure story guide. If you ever want to play that, it's his name is Dungeon Master and he's played by Snoop Dogg. You know, these are this is where Meta has an edge on in terms of consumer facing generative AI their for sort of parasocial interaction. Yes, it is. And this makes that parasocial interaction interactive, actually. And not all of them have all the features yet of the main meta AI system, but they will at some point have more. And I do think this is going to be the introduction to generative AI for younger people that has not been around quite, you know, the teenagers who are trying to write their papers for school, this is going to be the thing they do for fun rather than the thing they're doing. Exactly. I think that's that is an excellent analysis. I love it that you broke that down. You and I had not talked about this before right now. We've been too busy and we haven't talked to each other. I really like that breakdown. And I if we look at chat GPT, we look at Bard. I mean, these are productivity applications. There's like a business skew. It's not that you can't use them for your own for personal, but there is that business skew to it. And that's OK. People are doing that. When Dave Lamp talked about Alexa LLM, he said, hey, we're talking about like creation, not consumption, right? Everyone's talking chat GPT. It's all about like for creation, like doing images, writing reports, those types of things. And it was a really good way to frame it and say, you know, Alexa is really about consumption. It's about people using it in the home to do tasks and to consume media and stuff like that. And so we're taking this different tack. And although Facebook from time to time has flirted with being a productivity business tool, all these other things and objectively failed time and time again, they have a really big audience on the consumption consumer media area. And you and I talked about this. The next big growth in this space, we've already got huge growth, like on the productivity side, it's going to be these companions. It's going to be the entertainment use cases with LLMs, which are so much better. And that has got tremendous distribution. Like who's got better distribution than them? I mean, so in a role, it just seems perfect celebrity. Well, yeah, of course. Like they have that as well. But like it just seems like their properties really lend itself well to like not just having a great solution, but having distribution like immediately. And what's nice about this is they're not exactly just copying something and trying to repurpose it. They're trying to put it in their ecosystem. They're creating these new capabilities. Not that other people weren't doing it, but like there's been these other types of things where they just like surely just copy something that they see is going on. This is something we've seen some examples, ADOP in South Korea. Some people might say, hey, Brett, they're just really copying Character AI. OK, yeah, fair. But like if they're not, Character AI wasn't like in their ecosystem as much. They're on the web. So I think that like this is a good move by them. And it's not just that the it's sort of a quietly mentioned, but it's not just that they're paying these celebrities for their look or for their, you know, for something about how to create this character. I mean, by getting the input from these celebrities, you know, Paris Hilton wanted a whodunit solving. Yeah, yeah. She's like the Nancy Drew of this era. But because it's guess what? Now they're investing in it. They're going to be promoting it. They're going to be encouraging people to use it. And if people try one and they like it, suddenly they're going to try the other. Suddenly they're using meta AI system and now they're buying Ray -Ban smart glasses. Exactly. It's for the consumer. It's like shopping assistant, all these other types of things. I think it's like it's really good to get people addicted to things. And this is going to be the next one. That might be a core competency of the company. Elias Parker said AI21 was holding them back from being one of the biggest guys right now. Or are they? And I think the answer is it sort of depends on what you think AI21 is. So first of all, they are one of the biggest guys. Like the biggest players on the block. They're in Bedrock. They're in Vertex too, I think. Someone can correct me on that. So they have availability. Like the cloud providers pay attention to them. They have users and then they also have a very popular app, WordTune, which is something of a Grammarly competitor. I think they would say it's more than Grammarly. And I think that's fair because it's more like this cross between an assistant and Grammarly. But any thoughts on that? I think they are a big player, but I think like domain specific. They're moving into this domain specific focus with their application, but also with their APIs and some other things. And they just raised money at $1 .4 billion, I think. I think they have a very bright future, but they're not going to be open AI. Yeah. I mean, they have a $1 .4 billion valuation. They just raised $155 million. Yeah, they're part of Vertex. WordTune now is offering enterprise solutions. They've created their own LLMs. They've created their own APIs. They have a platform for building apps that the companies can use. They have a lot of products and a lot of solutions that are both for consumers and for the enterprise space. And I think that they're not open AI, obviously, but they are very much an alternative for those who don't want to go with an American tech giant as their provider. And they also have a lot of connections with not just with Google, but with Apple there. They were one of the first to make a Siri controllable mobile app. Yeah. I think that they're not going anywhere for a while, I would say. Yeah. And I'm glad you brought up Apple. I mean, I think that that's one of the things that might happen.
A highlight from BlockFi CEO and Former Colleague Continue the Crush of SBF's Defense
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Wednesday, October 18th, and today we are doing an SPF trial update. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it. Give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. All right, friends, we are back to SPF trial coverage. And for those of you who are coming into this fresh or who just need a little refresher on what happened last week, the two biggest witnesses in the first full week of the trial were ex FTX co -founder and CTO Gary Wong and Alameda Research CEO at the time of its failure, Caroline Ellison. Now both of these folks were damning to Sam's case in different ways. Gary was bad for Sam because his testimony kind of showed the mechanics of implementing their fraud. He discussed when at various points in the history of FTX, Alameda's very special and privileged relationship with FTX was built into the actual code base. He also showed that it started extremely early, going all the way back to 2019. Now Caroline's testimony was damning because it showed just how much control Sam had over Alameda even after nominally he had stepped down from the CEO role. Her testimony also made him look like just an utter asshole, but of course being an asshole isn't illegal. However, the knowledge and control of Alameda is a different story. So after Caroline finished, the next big witness was Zach Prince of BlockFi. There were a few highlights. Prince said that he believed that Alameda Research was solvent based on the balance sheets that he had seen. According to Prince's testimony, BlockFi began lending money to Alameda in late 2020 on what he recalled to be quote very robust loan agreements. The loans increased in size throughout 2021 after Prince held a conversation directly with Sam. By May 2022, Alameda had loaned over a billion dollars from BlockFi and those loans formed a substantial portion of their outstanding loan book of between five and ten billion dollars. Now the problems began after the collapse of the Terra Luna ecosystem. At that point, BlockFi called in Alameda's loans, which were of course in part due to losses that BlockFi had sustained from the collapse of Luna. Alameda repaid that money after which BlockFi made new loans to the firm worth $850 million. Those new loans were partially collateralized, but Prince said that the collateral was stored on FTX. BlockFi also traded customer funds worth around $350 million on FTX and so in total, Prince claimed that BlockFi lost quote a little over a billion dollars in the collapse of FTX. That loss was enough to force BlockFi into bankruptcy just a few weeks after FTX went down. And while Prince said that at some point BlockFi might have still needed to fold, that without the losses associated with FTX, it was far from a foregone conclusion. Importantly, part of Prince's testimony was used to explain how crypto lenders worked. He noted that BlockFi customers explicitly agreed to their assets to be lent out, drawing a distinction to how FTX dealt with customer assets without their approval. Once again, SPF's defense struggled on cross -examination. At one stage, they spent multiple questions walking through BlockFi's due diligence process surrounding a particular set of loan documents. They appeared to be trying to make the point that the loans evidenced a failure of risk management at BlockFi rather than fraud at Alameda. An exasperated Prince had to remind the defense counsel that the loan documents related to a loan which BlockFi's risk management division had refused to make. Now more than any other testimony that I've seen, it felt to me like when it came to Zach Prince, the reportage inside the room and what the vibe actually felt like, especially to those who were sitting in the jury box, was really different than just reading about it in the transcripts. David Z. Morris, formerly of Coindesk and now reporting on the trial for Protos, wrote, "...one thing about today was that it was clear they were actually f***ing up." Now he expanded on that in a longer thread from Protos, quote, At the end of its second week of flailing, the Sam Bankman -free defense team took another battering today in court. Under questioning from prosecutors, former BlockFi CEO Zach Prince testified that his company would have been unlikely to lend to Alameda Research if its balance sheets had accurately reflected its loans to FTX executives and illicit borrowing from FTX customers. Prince told the jury, I think we wouldn't have worked with them because that's something that's not appropriate. Cross -examining Prince for Bankman -free's defense, Mark Cohen spent about 40 minutes attempting to chip away at that claim by walking Prince through a credit evaluation document. The document showed how BlockFi's risk team evaluated Alameda's balance sheet, specifically examining the risk of using FTX as collateral, in response to Alameda's request for more lending in August of 2021. The defense tried to characterize Prince as having overridden his own risk team in evaluating the loans to Alameda. The real fault, Cohen seemed to imply, lay with anyone stupid enough to trust his client. But after nearly 40 minutes of examining the loan letter, Prince informed Cohen that in fact the loan had not been made, with Prince in fact following the cautious recommendation of his risk team. Later loans were made to Alameda, but against much higher collateral requirements. This appeared to be an attempt to circumvent an earlier ruling by Judge Kaplan that the defense could not argue that weak due diligence was to blame for the failure of investments or loans to FTX group companies. Cohen seemingly hoped to make a similar point about the use of FTTS collateral, but simply didn't have his facts straight. It would not be a stretch to describe the moment as humiliating for the defense. Maybe summing it up even more actually was another tweet from David Morris, where he Today's said, episode is brought to you by Kraken. For far too long, the whole financial system has been standing still, too slow, only on for certain hours. Overly designed for some types of people, but not for others. Crypto, at its best, represents progress. It asks the question, what if? It invites people in instead of leaving them out. It's on 24 -7, 365, and moves at the speed of real life. Not everyone believes it. We've got our fair share of detractors, but that's the way it always is when you're building something new. Kraken is a crypto company that has been through the highs and lows of the industry, facing forwards towards progress throughout. And now, they're inviting us to see what crypto can be.

Next up, on Monday, FTX head of engineering, Nishad Singh, was called by the prosecution to give evidence against his former co -conspirator, SPF. Nishad is, of course, the third of three major collaborators alongside Gary Wong and Caroline Ellison, who are giving testimony under the terms of a plea agreement. Nishad's early testimony dealt with the expenditure and investments made by FTX. He confirmed that Sam was closely involved in directing all big -ticket spending by the firm. Alongside the widely publicized venture investments into Anthropic AI and Genesis Digital Assets, Nishad detailed a $200 million investment into a venture firm known as K5. Nishad said that Sam had attended a dinner hosted by K5, which featured high -profile guests including Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris' husband, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Kendall Jenner, and Kris Jenner. This was, of course, a party around the Super Bowl. After that K5 dinner, Nishad claimed that Sam said, quote, He was very impressed with their level of connection to influential celebrities and entrepreneurs. He thought it would be useful for FTX to leverage those connections, end quote. Sam later presented Nishad and FTX CTO Gary Wong with a spreadsheet that detailed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses and an additional billion dollars in venture funding that he wanted to pay to K5 and its owners. Now continuing along this line of questioning, after walking through a number of extravagant outlays, prosecutors asked Nishad about the infamous $30 million Bahamas penthouse where key FTX executives had all lived together. Nishad talked about the group apartment shopping together and noted that they had considered much less expensive residences. He said that after the group inspected the penthouse, quote, Nishad explained that there had been a quote substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's just super ostentatious. Nishad expressed his discomfort to Sam, who said, quote, He would pay $100 million for the drama just to be done with and go away. Nishad took this as a quote, pretty clear sign that I should shut up and we should move forward with this. Now separately, Nishad explained that Alameda accepted customer deposits from the very beginning even before the retail FTX exchange had launched. The earliest project was an over -the -counter trading desk. That system was configured for customer deposits to go to Alameda, which Nishad believed were then forwarded to FTX. Regarding whether Alameda was allowed to use customer funds for its own purposes, Nishad said, I didn't have an affirmative understanding, but using it would break common sense expectations from customers. Nishad then discussed his understanding of the allow negative feature, which allowed Alameda to run a negative balance on FTX and implicitly use customer funds. Nishad explained that he had coded the first version of the feature at the direction of Sam and Gary Wong. He explained that because Alameda withdrew many assets that they didn't hold, those withdrawals were quote, Necessarily coming from other FTX customers. Repeating what we all know, Nishad said that this broke with customers' understanding of Alameda's status on the platform. He said, quote, I remember affirmative descriptions from Sam and others that Alameda didn't have special treatment, and this would constitute a form of special treatment. Nishad also discussed the movement of Alameda's loans to an account where interest wouldn't be charged. He said that Sam was aware of the large amount owed by Alameda to FTX, but said that, quote, In theory, those balances are in banks. It's not something that they're borrowing in sort of the traditional sense. They're custody -ing it, so they shouldn't be charged interest. Let's move as a liability out of a location where it's being charged interest. Another part of the testimony had to do with the infamous FTX liquidation engine. During the height of its popularity, the FTX liquidation engine was spoken about in glowing terms. It was said to be so well constructed that it allowed FTX to seamlessly offer margin loans across multiple assets, which was a feature that was not present on rival exchanges. He said that, quote, Even in instances in which a customer account ended up negative, and the insurance fund, which is a sort of bailout pool of cash, was empty, the expected option for resolving the negative balance would be a clawback, but there was nothing in the code that would do that. Instead, the account would remain negative, and Sam or Gary or others would sort of manually handle it however they saw fit. Essentially, Nishad gave evidence that this fabled liquidation engine didn't actually exist. Then the prosecution moved on to the final months at FTX. Nishad claims that he only found out about the massive hole in Alameda's balance sheet in September once he was asked to help repair it. He said that Sam asked the senior executives to contribute their personal holdings of serum tokens to the balance sheet to, quote, Make it appear that Alameda always had more collateral than it did. This manipulated balance sheet was intended to be given to the CFTC. Nishad said that he ultimately didn't contribute his own tokens because it, quote, Felt wrong to attempt to trick a federal regulator. Nishad also recalled a conversation with Sam on the balcony of the penthouse where Nishad asked what would be done about the hole in Alameda's balance sheet. He claimed that Sam said, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. Net asset value is fantastic by almost any measure. It was super positive even if you don't include FTX and FTX U .S. equity. Nishad burst that bubble by noting that Caroline Ellison and Gary Wong had pointed out that Alameda had borrowed $13 billion and was unable to repay. Sam simply responded, right, that. We're a little short on deliverable. Sam added that the issue had been, quote, Taxing me some 5 to 10 percent of my productivity for this year. Nishad asked Sam, quote, What the hell the plan was? Sam responded with a variety of strategies, including selling off Alameda's illiquid assets, raising more money by selling FTX equity and holding on until FTX U .S. launched futures trading, which he believed would happen, quote, any day now. Nishad asked Sam if he considered cutting expenses, which Sam said he was working on. Nishad said he was, quote, blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed that five years of blood, sweat and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. And, you know, according to Sam's take, chances to rebuild this hole depended enormously on me continuing to try to make the company successful. And I knew that would require me betraying customers and employees. During September, while this was all coming out within Sam's inner circle, SBF planned a trip to the Middle East to attempt a long shot to rescue the company. Although the original plan was to put together a fundraising round for the company, Sam instead suggested doing a deal with Telegram. He said that they should buy $120 million worth of TUN tokens, which had been the subject of an SEC enforcement action in 2020, but which we're looking to relaunch. Alongside the investment, Sam had said that FTX engineers could build a payment network that utilized the token. Nishad said the plan, quote, made me extremely nervous. Getting even longer random illiquid tokens was not something I was excited about, especially when the cost would come from customers. Nishad also discussed political donations that had been made in his name. He said that FTX Digital Markets CEO Ryan Salem had access to his bank account for the purpose of making these donations. Nishad said that he was used to make donations, quote, for optics, advantageous that it was useful for my name to be associated with some donations, even if the end recipient understood they were really coming from someone else. Now, many people have pointed out that if the organizations or individual politicians accepting these donations knew they were coming from someone else, that would be extremely problematic for them. Finally, to close out the day, Nishad described work he had done to manipulate revenue data for FTX. He said that at the end of 2021, he had, quote, made transfers from one of Sam's companies to another to FTX to make it appear as though FTX had higher revenues. Prior to this, FTX had recorded around 950 million dollars in revenue for the year. Unsatisfied, Sam instructed Nishad to make these transactions to ensure that FTX hit a billion dollars in revenue for the year. The particular change was that Sam decided to charge his other company for staking serum tokens. Nishad said that he was instructed to backdate the transactions to make it appear that they had been charged throughout the year. Now, in addition to all these details, the other aspect of this testimony was sort of as a check on Sam's character. Sam had explained that he was friends with Sam's brother from high school and that Nishad had initially felt intimidated by Sam, who he viewed as a, quote, formidable and brilliant person. Nishad said, I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, but over time that eroded. Now, yesterday, Nishad faced cross -examination. And once again, it was not really that effective. A Slate article on Monday characterized the cross -examination so far like this. The cross -examinations have rarely, if ever, directly rebutted the government's severe allegations, which encompass wire fraud, money laundering and five conspiracy counts related to securities and commodities fraud, among others. More often, the attorneys repeat simple questions on matters the prosecution has already established before building their way up to potential conclusions that never seem to land. That characterization sort of held up here with Nishad. Matthew Russell Lee at Inner City Press on Twitter, who I can't recommend highly enough for the play -by -play coverage, characterized the cross -examination as meandering. Now, that said, Coindesk did write a piece yesterday called, for once, Bankman Fried's Lawyer Lands a Punch. The lead of that story is, Nishad Singh, a member of Sam Bankman Fried's inner circle, couldn't quite remember what he had told prosecutors about his conversation with the fallen cryptocurrency mogul and other FTX executives he said Tuesday in response to questioning from SPF's lawyers. The former Bankman Fried confidant's admission marked the first time since the trial began two weeks ago that the defense had seemingly managed to poke a hole in the case against their client, whose empire crumbled nearly a year ago. I think reflecting on what this testimony did for the prosecution, in many ways, it was similar to Caroline Ellison. In the same way, at one point, Caroline finally broke down and really gave the impression of a person who had been wracked by guilt with their knowledge of the things that they were doing. Nishad, too, sort of acted as a voice of consciousness in that he clearly had guilt around what he was doing, even if he continued to do it. You basically have this situation where everyone around SPF who knows about all these things that are going on is getting increasingly uncomfortable with the brazenness of them and yet is compelled or pressured by Sam to continue and just stop worrying about it. It really reinforces the idea that there was at the center of this story a central, dominant ringleader, which, of course, isn't really good for the defense. Now, the next big question is whether SPF himself is going to go on the stand in his own defense. There are hints that he might. In a Sunday night filing, Sam's defense team reiterated their request for better access to Adderall for their client. The defense claimed that Sam has been receiving a single dose before leaving jail on the mornings of court appearances. They claim this dose wears off by the time the trial begins each day, meaning that Sam has been unable to, quote, concentrate at the level he ordinarily would and that he would not be able to meaningfully participate in the presentation of the defense case. Their letter to the judge said that this lack of Adderall could play a critical role in determining, quote, the critical decision of whether Mr. Bankman -Fried will testify. Many commentators have taken the position that the defense has been floundering so far. They've struggled to discredit witnesses or present a coherent case during cross -examination. In fact, their performance has been so bad that some are beginning to wonder if the plan is to set up an appeal on procedural grounds. Alongside the practical issues with receiving adequate medication, in this letter, the defense have flagged one of the grounds for an eventual appeal. The idea that throughout the process, Sam has been denied his right to, quote, meaningfully participate in his defense. Investor Adam Cochrane certainly thinks that this is the gambit. He writes, PS, they don't actually give an F about his meds. They care about throwing out the trial. Vegan meals, lacking meds, weird medical hours. They'll probably try and claim some mental duress violating his right to compulsory process and self -defense. Does it work? Unlikely. But they want you to pity him. They want the jury to pity him. They want to throw every wrench they can into the gears of justice and grind it to a halt. Now, others were speculating about whether Sam could actually resist the lore of testifying in his own defense. Delphi Digital General Counsel Gabriel Shapiro wrote, imagine how epic it will be if SPF actually testifies. He could not even withstand cross -examination by Coffeezilla. Prosecutors will absolutely shred him on cross. Let's just hope he can be that stupid and narcissistic to give us one last show before he's put away for good. Of course, if Sam does make that last Hail Mary decision, you better believe we will be there to cover it. For now, that is going to do it for today's episode.

Thanks for tuning in to the Unchained Recap for Day 9 of the criminal trial for Sam Bigman -Fried. In devastating testimony for the defense, former FTX head of engineering Nishad Singh detailed instances of bullying behavior from ex -CEO Sam Bigman -Fried and numerous times when SPF used customer funds to fuel his spending spree. Singh described an organization that allegedly defrauded FTX customers by freely spending customer assets on ill -advised investments, sponsorships, and political action, all at Bankman -Fried's direction, and a leadership style that browbeat and belittled anyone who disagreed with him or expressed concerns. Singh's testimony echoed comments by the prosecution's other two star witnesses during the first two weeks, former Alameda CEO Caroline Ellison and former FTX chief technology officer Gary Wong. I was blindsided and horrified. I felt really betrayed. That five years of blood, sweat, and tears from me and so many employees driving towards something that I thought was a beautiful force for good had turned out to be so evil, Singh said. I knew that customers were betrayed. So many customers had to put their trust in us. Singh, who came across as earnest and is having a strong conscience, told jurors that SPF continued to spend excessively even after learning of an $8 billion hole in Alameda's balance sheet that mushroomed as the crypto market slumped following the collapse of the I deficit. learned of the hole and even after that, implicitly and explicitly, I greenlit transactions that I knew must have been digging the hole deeper and therefore coming from customer funds, Singh said. Singh, who was Bankman -Fried's younger brother's friend and had known SPF since high school, was initially intimidated by the defendant after joining Alameda in 2017. But he lost faith in SPF amid his dismissiveness and seeming dishonesty to where company's financial management. I had a lot of admiration and respect for him, Singh said. Over time, I think a lot of that eroded, and I grew distrustful. Singh described his increasing concern about Bankman -Fried's spending even as the company sank deeper into debt. I'd frequently go to Sam and express that I thought that the spend was too large or that it didn't make sense, in essence, a bad business decision. And I also would express that I felt kind of embarrassed and ashamed of how much it all reeked of excess and flashiness. It didn't align with what I thought we were building a company for. Some examples of the excess were that Alameda had invested $1 .5 billion into Bitcoin miner Genesis digital assets in early 2022, as well as $500 million into AI startup Anthropic and $200 million into incubation firm K5, founded by Michael Kives. The K5 deal accelerated after SPF attended a Super Bowl -related party in Los Angeles with several top A -list celebrities. Hillary Clinton, Doug Emhoff, Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Kate Hudson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jeff Bezos, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner, and Corey Gamble. Singh said SPF described the event as, quote, the most impressive collection of people he had ever seen in one location, adding that the FTX co -founder told him that if asked, K5 could probably arrange an FTX dinner with Elon Musk, former President Barack Obama, Rihanna, and Mark Zuckerberg in a month. When Singh saw the term sheet with K5, which proposed hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to Kives and his partner Brian Baum, as well as $1 billion for their VC firm, he was shocked. Quote, I was worried that partnering with K5 and giving them this much money would be really toxic to FTX and Alameda culture, that every day I was actively trying to espouse, I felt we all were, that politicking and social climbing was not going to be rewarded. And here we were rewarding people in exorbitant amounts, Singh said. He added that he asked SPF to use his own personal money for the deal so that it wouldn't affect the culture of FTX. Singh also detailed his shock at the $1 .1 billion FTX spent on sponsorships, such as the naming rights for the Miami Heat basketball arena and endorsements from top celebrities, including Steph Curry, Tom Brady, Gisele Bundchen, and Larry David. He was also uncomfortable with the spending on real estate. For instance, before they moved into their luxury penthouse apartment, Bigman Fried and his future roommates argued over where to live. The group had initially chosen a more modest apartment, but SPF wanted to check out the penthouse. Quote, Sam really liked this one, Singh said. Sam's a fan of views, and there was substantial disagreement about if we should go with it, in part because it was really expensive, in part because it's super ostentatious. When discussing it with SPF, Singh said, quote, Sam said that he would pay $100 million for the drama to just be done with and go away, which I took as a pretty clear sign that I should shut up. In September 2022, Singh had a discussion with the defendant about the lack of collateral Alameda had to support its futures trading. Singh determined that Alameda was short $10 billion of what was needed to support its trading positions and relied on its $65 billion line of credit to make up for this multi -billion dollar deficit. Bigman Fried instructed Singh to transfer SPF's Ellison's and Wong's personal SRM tokens, which were locked, and therefore illiquid, into Alameda's main trading account. Singh said the transfer was meant to fool the CFTC, or US Commodity Futures Trading Commission, by making it seem as if Alameda had posted more collateral than it had. Singh did not execute the transfer, saying that it felt wrong. He said, quote, I was fine giving up my personal assets. I'd taken on debts and given up my assets for the company countless times. But I understood the purpose of this exercise was to be, you know, to fool a US regulator and to fool employees of the company. And I wasn't comfortable doing that. Singh, who was freaking out about the possibility that FTX would be unable to meet customer withdrawals, had an evening talk with the defendant in the fall of 2022 on the palatial balcony of their luxurious apartment, which featured a swimming pool and several lounge chairs. In this talk, Singh said he was worried about Alameda's NAV, which was his euphemism for the hole, and Bigman Fried responded, quote, I'm not sure what there is to worry about. NAV is fantastic by almost any measure. When Singh asked how much Alameda was short by, SPF said, quote, that is the wrong question to be asking, and then proceeded to talk about how much he could deliver within various timeframes. Around $5 billion in 24 hours, substantially more in several weeks. And after that, quote, again, substantially more. At some point, Singh said, Jesus fucking Christ. And Bigman Fried said that his shortcoming of several billion dollars had been taxing him about 5 to 10 percent of his productivity. While Singh responded, he thought it would hit him a lot harder. The prosecutor asked Singh why he didn't leave FTX. He said he considered leaving the company every day, but added, quote, how could I live with myself if my departure precipitated a fall that might have been unavoidable? Singh details how he tried to cut costs of the company and said that at first he was, quote, pleasantly surprised and felt he was able to cut a couple hundred million dollars in spend. But further conversations with SPF made him realize that what Singh felt was, quote, an obligation was, quote, not being taken seriously since SPF was unwilling to cut endorsement and sponsorship deals that meant another $1 billion was, quote, headed out the door. After SPF returned from his Middle East fundraising trip, Singh, who so rarely met with a former FTX CEO one -on -one, said that it was an annual occurrence, met with him privately again, this time in one of Sam's apartments. After beginning by stating he was not doing well and thinking of quitting, Singh asked SPF how it was going with NAV. SPF, who was standing in the kitchen with his back against the fridge, said he could raise anywhere from $0 to $5 billion. He told Singh the main plan was to make FTX a success and said to Singh, quote, that depends a huge part on you. You're one of the few people, Nishad, that can take that kind of work off my plate so I can focus on the rest of this. Singh admitted he had been afraid to ask SPF for the meeting and said that he felt the defendant was, quote, very mad and that the meeting was tense with, quote, long periods of silence. Then he listed some of what he called Sam's tells for when he's upset and how SPF showed them in this conversation. Quote, puffed out his chest, hands back. He was grinding his finger, closing his eyes, grinding his teeth or tongue in his mouth. And when he opened them to respond, he would sort of glare at me with some intensity. I ended up apologizing to him at the end for asking for the meeting because I could tell it was so unwelcome. Singh pleaded guilty to charges related to violating campaign finance laws, which involved letting donations be made at his name even though they were funded from Alameda or as a borrower from FTX. Some of these loans were used for Bank One Three's political donation campaign and to fund his brother's political action committee, guarding against pandemics. Additionally, he said he participated in falsifying and backdating FTX's 2021 revenue numbers for auditors. SPF wanted FTX's revenue, which stood at 950 million dollars for the year, to be one billion dollars because FTX's revenue would show up on a spreadsheet that would be presented to investors. SPF proposed creating fake revenue backdated throughout the year from charging for offering staking services of serum. When withdrawals began to accelerate on November 5th, Singh became, quote, concerned that this might spell doom and the end of our fraud. Since he knew customers who expected full access to their assets did not know that they were not backed. Although Singh seemed to have a strong sense of right and wrong, even he ended up doing things he wasn't proud of. Around this time, he sent SPF a signal message asking if he could, quote, make some fictitious transactions that it looks like I had paid off this amount that I owed. Singh explained that he meant backdated transactions, which was, quote, something I knew could be done because Sam had proposed it once to me in other contexts. Singh acknowledged this, quote, felt wrong and said he wasn't trying to excuse himself, but said, quote, I was in different levels of having a right mind throughout these days. On November 6th, he said a war room meeting gathered in one of Bankman -Fried's apartments. It was attended by Singh, SPF, Ellison, Wong, Romnick Aurora, and by phone, head of FTX Digital Markets, Ryan Salem, who all were workshopping a draft tweet thread by Bankman -Fried. Quote, there was a point when they were discussing whether or not to characterize FTX as solvent or well -capitalized. I felt very uncomfortable with both definitions, Singh said. I felt neither was true. Singh leaned over the couch to say something like, quote, I'm not comfortable with this. I'm recusing myself. He testified. They acknowledged in a kind of annoyed way and proceeded. Singh had wanted to halt withdrawals rather than make a statement about FTX's strength. He said, quote, I'd overheard in the conversation opinions that these tweets should be really strong, which I understood to be a euphemism for particularly misleading in such a way that will quell fears definitively. On November 8th, via signal chat, Singh and Bankman -Fried discussed the fact that lawyer Dan Friedberg was angry and that Salem might resign. Singh then wrote, quote, they may need to know that it wasn't a ton of people orchestrating it. In testimony, Singh explained, quote, I really wanted Sam to clarify what everyone's role in this fraud was. I wanted him to clarify that I wasn't orchestrating it and that I learned about it really late. I wanted Sam to clarify that he was orchestrating it. I was certainly guilty for participating in it since September, but don't feel I made the whole. And secondly, I wanted the state of my relationship with these people I loved and tried to do right by, to remain intact and for them to not hate me. It was during this part of his testimony that Singh revealed he had been, quote, suicidal for days shortly after his direct testimony ended, meaning that Tuesday morning he will face his cross -examination. Unchained will be back for more recaps tomorrow. And if you like, you can also get real -time updates on my Twitter feed at Laura Shin at around lunchtime and after 4 .30 PM when court lets out. Thanks and see you tomorrow.

"Have a newborn. You look good. I do. Oh, that is called makeup. And caffeine. That's what's going on there, yeah. We got a newborn. She's a month old and she's just so perfect and so special. It's really been nice for me to be able to actually spend more time with her older sister who's 21 months because mama is on baby duty and I've been able to really bond with her in a way that I hadn't yet, which is really special. Lots of dance parties and fairy wings and, you know, you're putting them on? Oh yeah. Oh yeah. Yeah, I'm girl dad, for sure. Okay, so I gotta be honest with you.

I couldn't, I couldn't get him to come over for a meal, so I had to create a series just to put him in. It was fantastic having him on set. He's a very, very dedicated young man. I have to ask, you're working with your brother in law on set. What's that even like? Are y'all going to dinner after you're having a drink or is he gonna put you in a hotel? Look, I'm not that big of a role in this and he's the main, you know, head honcho, you know? And by the way, he's not only starring in it. He's producing it. He was show running it. You know, he's the one who got the right sort. So this was his baby, you know? And watching a go from kind of the ideation in the book into a reality, he was so specific about every little thing with the project. So he was, he was in work mode for the whole time. Tell me what happened. Somebody fed us bad Intel. He just set up answers for blood. Blood. Why was this the role for you? This was the role for me to tell you, that's a great question. For years, I've been kind of at the mercy of other people what they wanted to do. I've been very lucky, very blessed. And I finally am in a position to where I can do exactly what I want to do. And I read this book and I knew that this was this. It's a love letter to our navy seal community and our special operators are men and women in uniform and was an opportunity to try something completely different and unexpected, which is what I'd like to continue to do as an actor. It's what I did when I went from Andy dwyer into star lord and now it's like another new turn and an opportunity to just really spread my wings and continue to learn and grow. So I want your children to join the industry one day. I want them to be happy. And it makes me happy, but if it makes them happy, sure. Justin, I.

He also told the behind the velvet rope where David Jones podcast Madonna brought her own wardrobe and her own glam to set. Have you ever worked with somebody like this? Yes, I have. And Madonna is music. Television and film is too completely separate worlds. And some people are able to distinguish the two. And some people are not able to get out of that. And when they're not able to do that, you leave them alone and leave them to their own devices. And at this time, she was like the highest. She was at the peak of her career. She was Madonna, you know, but my thing is, when you come on a sitcom, come on now. You are supposed to play the character. You're not coming there unless it's for you to be a cameo asthma Donna. You know, they work really hard to creatives, the producers, like what they just did. I'll go along with moose, moose is not an animal. He's an actual man, but you know what? They thought about it and he said, we gotta move sound, so let's play the sound. He is so you go along with it. You know what I'm saying? You go along with it.

You know what? Too early. Oh my God. It's a drink. And just like the time I was ready to get up on it. Okay. Come on. And just like that, we have another Hollywood split. This time it's Kendall Jenner and NBA star Devin Booker. A source tells E. News after two years together, they decided they have very different lifestyles. Now, the last time we saw these two was just a few weeks ago, they were quite a Travis wedding. Y'all. What are y'all thinking happening in Italy? You know they was a pressure in her about this baby. That's what Justin, I think it was about the baby talk. Because remember, you know, they were mama. Yeah, Chris was saying, you know, everybody got baby, except you. And so now I think it's some pressure on her to have baby. And Devin had got a pressure to get a championship, and he got a focus. You know what I mean? So I don't think that they like broke up broke up. I just think they take it a break. Do you think I think so too? A lot of people break up during summer. Yeah. Like right before summer, you leave room for a new life. This is becoming out me and just go crazy. It's true. That's why James living at motel 6 right now. Ronnie was ready to have a hot girl summer. But Lonnie, you are right. And I think a lot of times when our families put pressure on us, we transfer the pressure. It's like a direct deposit that we don't even know that we're doing. And it gets a little crazy and also sometimes when you're focused on your job and on your work, you sometimes have to put love on the side. Yeah. And we saw how love kind of, you know, Chris Tristan Thompson ain't made a free throw in, you know, 6 months because he got all that pressure on his county. Who's counting? But have you had to put your, you know, you know, love life aside for your career. I'm doing it right now. Really? I've done it all my life. Like, we talked about last time about relationships. I always let the man pick me and I never chose the guy, so that's why I thought it was cool for Chloe to kind of switch it up. But I always pick Korea over all the relationships, always. Because I started out as a child actor. So it's my second nature. It's unfortunate. Sometimes, right? I'm okay with it. Is there one that you wish you can go back and redo that you just say, there is everybody. I think everybody has that one. Yeah, and I let them go. And I knew when I was letting him go. I was like, you know, I might regret this. Mine's his name was moose. Who was in college? He loved it did me. He loved it. But I just left it ready. And that's the thing. Sometimes when you know in relationships, you not ready. And you know this person is good, but it's just a timing, you know, what Eric about you say, I see you in another life. See you next night. Yes. But sometimes you have to let people go because I knew at my stage of my career that I was going to pick career over him. So you have no regrets. I don't have any regrets in life y'all. I don't have any regrets in life. Not one. You know what, and I love that. You know, sometimes think what if I'm a what if conifers? Okay. And I'm mad at myself 'cause there was a one that I let go. And I didn't fight hard enough for it. Not that I let go. I didn't fight hard enough. What happened? And I'm just. What happened? No, I'm just. I tried to be hard and be like, yeah, whatever, I'm good. I'm gonna be good. When I know that he wanted me to fight for him. But and you didn't do it. I didn't do it because I was starting this career and I was gonna be traveling. That's okay. See, it's okay in life to make choices. Yeah. Your choice may not be the best choice that you feel at that time, but in the long run, you'll see why you made that decision. No, too. See, they're young. Okay, they're still in their 20s. In 2025, 24, so they still got a little time. I'm sorry, you still die. You still thought in that 50? Justin. You still thought that saying for you, you, you gotta start, you know, cut your losses, buddy, 'cause, you know, you getting up there and we can't even get you in prison. Okay?

This is my guilty pleasure. So I stayed up past my bedtime and watched it. No, and I enjoyed it. In this particular instance, I mean, set had a weird, I don't know how they edit the show or whatever, but it was, she was a little, she seemed a little off just because the whole robbery happened with Dorit, and that was awful. And the way they edited it, it kind of seemed like something just wanted to talk about her dating life or whatever. But who knows? Anyway, that said. What did seem like shade? I mean, Erica hasn't said that she wants to date a guy for his money. I don't want to date a guy. It's just about to ask that. Is it wrong? I don't think there's anything wrong with saying that you want to date a guy with money. I don't think there's anything wrong with you saying that you want to date a broke guy. It is your preference. That's what makes it yours. I think that's true. I think like for me, it isn't so much about money. It's about accomplishment. It's about confidence because I do think when a successful woman is with a guy who maybe doesn't really have it together. And like I said, that's not necessarily associated with money. I think it can be threatening. I'm going to tell you, none of these ladies are going to bring in a plumber. And I love plumbers. But none of them, not on this show.

He is ready to be ready to become one in real life. Maybe at some point down the road, we'll see, of course, I'd love to be a dad one day, but I don't know what if the movie made me want to do it any sooner. Now you were fantastic Brian, but I think I got a little bit more time. To wait. Our responsibility is getting her ready. Our responsibility is to protect her. For this movie, especially not only is it all about this fire and this action happening, but it's also about this family. And so Zach was always there for me and was really awesome. Let her go, it's gonna get a lot worse. Most interaction I've had with fire in a ever. You can actually tell how far we were in the movie based on how big the fires were getting and progressively as we got through the story. They got stronger. Stronger and stronger, and actually at the very end, we just started burning down the whole set. And in case you were wondering, yes, he did get burned. A few times. It kind of was just par for the course. So what superpower would Zach wanted real life? Cooking. Just being able to cook. Even simple things.

"That's disgusting. I told you. This is befuddled by that. I have never shared a toothbrush with another person in my life. And for some reason with Rory, we have never not used the same toothbrush. Is she trying to save money? What's happening? It seems they're hard for you. You can get them at the dollar store. I do think it's and she later in the interview, she talks about where else they share things and that it shouldn't be that. Which I do think she does kind of have a point. I mean, it is, I do think this, like, people are just willing to sort of Willy know you have sex with each other. But like, they won't give you keys to their house. They won't let you borrow whatever toothbrush tear. No, no, no, I wouldn't do the job. I agree. I'm totally. I am so nuts about my toothbrush when I stay in a hotel. This is true. Yeah. I wrap my toothbrush in Kleenex, and I put it in the safe before I leave, because I have fantasies, nightmares, really, of what somebody who comes in my room might do with my toothbrush. No, no. What? Oh, yeah. So I'm obsessed with the whole toothbrush. There's no way I'm sharing my toothbrush. I keep my toothbrush just like, you know, I know where that toothbrush has been. That said, it is funny to me that people are so easily intimate and yet they draw these lines. Yeah. Certain things. Because we're French kissing up. We're French kissing. And other things. And putting your mouth everywhere. And yeah, a toothbrush was where you draw the line. But when the toothbrush, you're scraping your tongue, you're all up in the back. I'm sorry, but I would never. I don't care how much you can actually, if the person has a viral infection, here comes nerd Lonnie. If you have a viral infection, that person can actually spread it. That's why the dentist actually say, don't share your toothbrush because of that. But on Instagram, we did ask the people would you share your toothbrush with your partner? 85% of y'all said, hell no. Okay. Thank you. I thought you were going to say they said yes, I was like, that can't be true. No, no. We have very clean people here. I'd rather use a Q tip or my finger like you know what you get stuck. You get drunk and you end up at someone's house. You don't have your toothbrush. Yeah, they're all kinds of things you can use other than the other person. They got the money. Okay. Much love you are as you know, with James. You would never use his toothbrush. Hell no. We got money. Go to the dollar store. Get you some toothbrushes, okay? Okay. Now, Amanda Cy friend says being famous sucks, but claims she is not super famous. Amanda tells Marie Claire, I think being really famous must really suck. It must make you feel comfortable unsafe in the world. I've also been somewhat recognizable. I mean, I've always been, but it's been the healthiest trajectory. I don't know if I read that, right? She seems to dislike the word famous. Is it hard for you to say? I'm famous. Terry hatcher. Mmm um. It is hard for me to say I'm famous. Wisteria lane? Yeah, no, I know. If you asked my daughter, she would just be like, there's been many times that I find myself going, you know, well, 'cause I mean, I'm sort of fame. Yeah, it's a weird, I don't know if I mean it in the same context as her, but it is a, it's a strange thing to adjective to use as yourself. When you're describing yourself as hard to say.

Break up rumors swirled around after rich Paul missed her 34th birthday party last week, but Adele shared these pics letting everyone know they're still going strong. Everything they look franny. She has that glow. I'm so happy for her, Dale, because we know that what she has gone through in the past, but they'll bring up that picture real quick. No, I want all of our viewers to come closer to your screen and show that last photo. Get close to the screen. Look at Paul rich's index finger. What is on that index finger? A set of keys.

She's proud that they look beautiful. That's what Instagram's for. Letting people know what you're doing. So I guess that makes sense. But I'll be honest, she's also a human. And as humans, we have feelings and we also have eyeballs and we read these tabloids and we read these things about us and when we hear that my boyfriend is breaking up with me and know we're happily in love, you kind of want to stick it to the world in some way. We do say that that was the one good thing about social media in regards at least to being a celebrity. It was the first time that you could get in front of a story. You know, you used to have zero control. The tablets say whatever they want and there really was no place to fight back. And so that's what. And it's a way to do it classy without, you know, making a lot of comments. Pictures tell a thousand words. Now, Sarah Simpson did not believe in boundaries. She told the ladies of the view, she shares everything with her man, including her toothbrush. Well, I have a question for you because I was a funneled by this. Before the pandemic, you were living alone. And you had said that you weren't sure you would ever share your bed again. And since then, you started dating, and not only are you sharing your bed. You're sharing your toothbrush. Ew. Really?.

And in that sense, it felt like. If you know you're going to draw that attention on your Friends, they just let her let her have her one day. You're trying to rule thumb.

The Coca Cola company, um, can influence the entire ecosystem around them. Because you don't have to do business with every company that comes along. So maybe your company is getting coke. But, you know, maybe maybe you shouldn't be getting go because you're not really into the equity of the new system. And it's great to have that kind of thinking sitting right next to MasterCard and Kearns, vice chairman of MasterCard said. We have to require responsible stewardship of our shared resource is And the climate agenda should be part of all corporate governance. So why go through the government? When the government can partner with these private companies, and they're not held any standard? They could just do it, You know, you know Mm hmm. Yeah, I love this. This is a good way to go. Well, they They were listening to president eyes easing Ping Oh, yesterday. Good good.
