Brett Harrison served as President of FTX US for 17 months before he quit in September last year. And according to the 49-tweet thread he posted a few days ago, it was not easy dealing with disgraced founder Sam Bankman-Fried.
20/49 There was tremendous pressure not to disagree with Sam, but I did so anyway. At that time, and for all of my time at FTX US, his influence over the media, FTX’s partners, the venture capital industry, and the traditional finance industry was pervasive and unyielding.

According a report published earlier today by Bloomberg, he successfully raised $5 million from the investment arms of Coinbase and Circle for his new crypto project called Architect. Harrison wants to build a crypto trading software for large investors.
