FTX's former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, has been found guilty on all seven charges after his first trial, and the sentencing date has been set for March 28. It is reported that he could face nearly 115 years in prison. Coin Gabbar predicts that Do Kwon, the co-founder of Terraform Labs, may also face charges after his first trial, with a potential sentence exceeding 100 years.
