In a statement released on Monday, the government of the Bahamas confirmed that Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of the defunct cryptocurrency exchange FTX, had been detained there after the filing of felony convictions against him by US authorities.

On Twitter, the Southern District of New York announced Bankman-arrest Fried’s as part of its investigation into the demise of FTX and its sibling trading business, Alameda.

Many famous faces were connected to FTX. They included such notables as Tom Brady and Steph Curry.

A class action complaint has been filed against Yuga Labs, the parent company of the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT series, and it names Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry as a plaintiff.

Last Monday, investors Adonis Real and Adam Titcher filed a 95-page case in federal district court in Los Angeles. The lawsuit claims that investors suffered “staggering losses” because celebrity endorsement inflated interest and value in BAYC NFTs.

The lawsuit alleges various violations of federal securities law, as well as unfair competition, unjust enrichment, and consumer law violations, aiding and abetting, and civil conspiracy. Real and Titcher are seeking at least $5 million in damages, as well as a court hearing for themselves and others who are “similarly situated.”

The team had previously canceled its “first-of-its-kind” cryptocurrency agreement with FTX, taking down all FTX-related advertisements and advertising from Chase Center.
