Elon Musk, Dogecoin Co-Creator Agree This Is Sam Bankman-Fried’s ‘Biggest Crime’ – FTX Token (FTT/USD), Dogecoin (DOGE/USD)
Twitter CEO Elon Musk took a dig at former FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried being charged for money laundering, wire, and securities fraud on Tuesday.
What Happened: In an interaction with Dogecoin DOGE/USD co-creator Billy Markus, Musk agreed that Bankman-Fried’s “biggest crime of all” was being “bronze league” in “League of Legends.”
“League of Legends” is tiered from Challenger To Iron with Bronze being the second-last rung in the rankings. The game is bottom-heavy, reported Financial Times, citing LeagueofGraphs data.
The Diamond-Iron tiers are further distributed into ranks ranging from I to IV, where the smaller number denotes a higher ranking, according to the report.
Previously, Sen. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) has also taken a dig at Bankman-Fried’s lack of skill in the game. The senator enjoys a higher ranking in the game than the disgraced tech entrepreneur.
Why It Matters: Markus has previously slammed the FTX founder’s lack of skills in the multiplayer online battle video game.
The Dogecoin co-creator called Bankman-Fried a “bronze league feeding scrub.”
Bankman-Fried was arrested in the Bahamas on Monday. He’s been denied bail and deemed a flight risk. The U.S. prosecutors allege that he committed fraud against FTX’s customers.
