Sam Bankman-Fried is ranked #60 on Forbes Billionaires List for 2022, with a net worth of $24 billion. He stated that his objective is to give away all of his money during his lifetime.

“When you think about yourself personally, about spending money on yourself, how much can you spend usefully on yourself, right?” said Sam Bankman-Fried. “You can buy nice food. You’re talking about hundreds of thousands a year, right? You can get to millions a year with, like, fancy things, but after the 10th cart, it’s not clear what you’re doing, right? It’s hard to spend more than millions a year in, like, an effective way on yourself, even if you really wanted to.”

Sam Bankman-Fried recently stated that he believes Blockchain technology will boost competition in the social media business, “Because it enables newcomers to enter the field without falling behind in terms of user base growth.”
