Taking a Beat: Recognizing the Victims of FTX Downfall and Celebrating the Journalism That Made It Happen

CoinDesk wins George Polk awards in financial journalism after bringing down the giant.

February 24, 2023

As of late, the focus of the crypto space has been on the wrongdoing of a group of people that used the current state of this technology to take advantage of others and advance their own interests. But what about the victims? Where is the compassion for their loss and the loss of trust within the crypto space?

On this episode of “Money Reimagined,” Michael Casey and Sheila Warren are together again, discussing Sheila’s recent testimony in front of the California state legislature about the current perception of the state of the crypto economy and environment; also, Michaels’ article on CoinDesk journalists who were awarded Polk Awards for the scoop and followups, that led to the collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX crypto empire.
