With crypto prices continuing to slide, Sam Bankman-Fried, the outspoken CEO of major crypto exchange FTX, argued that the US Federal Reserve (Fed) is to blame for the ongoing downturn, but that large companies such as his have a responsibility to step in and make efforts to contain the resulting losses for crypto investors.“The core driver of this has been the Fed,” he said in an interview with public broadcaster NPR, declaring that, as the Fed is increasing interest rates in an aggressive bid to combat the rising inflation, this has led to a “recalibration” of expectations of risk among investors.“Literally, markets are scared,” the CEO said. “People with money are scared.”Bankman-Fried finds that major crypto businesses such as his exchange have a responsibility to strive to contain the losses resulting from the ongoing meltdown that impacts crypto investors.“I do feel like we have a responsibility to seriously consider stepping in, even if it is at a loss to ourselves, to stem contagion,” the entrepreneur said.

He added that: “Even if we weren't the ones who caused it, or weren't involved in it. I think that's what's healthy for the ecosystem, and I want to do what can help it grow and thrive.”The CEO did not specify how they "stepped in" during this crash if at all, and just provided an example from 2021.
