Lawsuit Alleges FTX Lobbyist Attempted to Purchase Pacific Island to Create New ‘Superspecies’


According to a report from CNBC, Gabe Bankman-Fried, the younger brother of Sam Bankman-Fried and a top lobbyist for the failed crypto exchange FTX, considered buying the Pacific island nation of Nauru as an apocalypse bunker state. This is according to a lawsuit filed in Delaware bankruptcy court.

The suit claims Bankman-Fried and an unnamed philanthropic officer of FTX were looking to use Nauru as a haven in the event of a global catastrophe and to foster “sensible regulation around human genetic enhancement” and build a lab there.

However, a representative for Nauru has confirmed that the island nation has never been for sale.
