“I will be speaking with @andrewrsorkin at @dealbook summit next Wednesday (11/30),” Bankman Fried wrote on Twitter.
The New York Times annual DealBook Summit is scheduled for November 30 in New York City, according to the newspaper’s press release. On the summit’s webpage, the list of speakers and speakers includes Bankman-Fried, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, former Vice President Mike Pence, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and others.
Andrew Ross Sorkin, founder and editor-at-large of DealBook at The New York Times, confirmed Wednesday on Twitter that he will be interviewing the founder of the now-defunct FTX on November 30.
“A lot of people have been asking if I’ll be interviewing @SBF_FTX at @nytimesdealbook Summit on November 30th,” he wrote. “The answer is yes. There are a lot of important questions to be asked and answered.”
The journalist said he was “looking forward to it” and that “nothing is off limits”. Sorkin and Bankman-Fried did not specify in their tweets whether the interview would be in-person or remote.

Bankman-Fried’s tweet about speaking at the event comes as FTX, once one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world, has been embroiled in bankruptcy proceedings and government investigations.
FTX said on November 11 that it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with trading company Alameda Research, West Realm Series, and 130 affiliates. It had announced a few days earlier that it had reached a deal with another cryptocurrency exchange, Binance, to be acquired, only for Binance to back down from pointing out red flags during the due diligence process.
FTX’s first bankruptcy hearing was held Tuesday, during which a Delaware court heard how millions of customers would be affected, FOX Business previously reported.
