New York It would be a desperate move: according to US media reports, the founder of failed cryptocurrency exchange FTX, Sam Bankman-Fried, still believes he can raise enough money to compensate his users.

The Wall Street Journal, citing inside sources, reported Tuesday that Bankman-Fried spent the weekend with a few remaining employees calling potential investors.
