The younger brother of Sam Bankman-Fried, a senior lobbyist for successful crypto exchange FTX, planned to buy the Pacific island nation of Nauru to create a fortified apocalypse banker empire, according to a lawsuit filed in Delaware bankruptcy court.
Gabe Bankman-Fried was looking at buying Nauru “in a 50%-99.99% mortality event” to protect his philanthropic partners and create genetically modified human species, according to a lawsuit from Sullivan & Cromwell lawyers seeking billions of dollars in the wake of the FTX collapse. …”
In addition to serving as a resting place during the apocalypse, “perhaps there are other things worth doing with a sovereign nation,” according to a memo between the young Bankman-Fried and a philanthropic adviser, which was cited in the case.
“The representative of Nauru confirmed that the island nation was not for sale and would never be sold.”
