Kyle Davis, the founder of collapsed crypto fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC), attacked FTX, claiming that the exchange victimized his position during the collapse of LUNA.

Speaking on the results of crypto exchange FTX and its trading arm Alameda Research, Davis Told The firm was also involved in triggering the bankruptcy of 3AC.

“We now understand that FTX/Almeida victimized our position but at the end of the day we lost our money (we were the biggest losers) and LPs/creditors. Today we are not in control of the firm, there is a Liquidation process that will take place at an appropriate time for all involved,” he said in a tweet.

Davis also addressed the fallout of Luna’s algorithmic stablecoin UST, admitting that they “completely messed up the thesis around it. We were attracted by the quality of the supporters/builders/team and enough time spent on the mechanics.” not spent.”

Zhu Su, another founder of 3AC and former CEO of the crypto fund, also claimed that he was “scammed” in response to a screenshot of a Telegram chat with Almeida. He said, “It is a long story but we were cheated just like you guys, okay – justice is coming.”

Meanwhile, Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson argued that the collapse of FTX was not a failure of the crypto itself, but rather the loss of the flawed and centralized infrastructure around the platform.

At the end of the day, as much as we like to believe in the principles of cryptocurrency, it all has to do with people putting money into centralized exchanges and organizations putting money toward them. had to do with handing over centralized businesses,” he said.
