NY POST Seeking Answers About Barbara Miller Role In FTX Meltdown

The New York Post is the latest national media outlet seeking answers about Broward’s connection to the FTX Cryptocurrency Exchange meltdown. On Sunday, the NY Post delved into the ties between FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) and his aunt, Broward Democrat consultant Barbara Miller. Last November, REDBROWARD was the first outlet to expose Barbara Miller’s employment with FTX. Since our initial report, outlets such as Reuters, The New York Times and Fox Business have questioned the exact role Miller had with FTX and her nephew.

Barbara Miller enlisted the help of Broward School Board member Debra Hixon with the staging of the FTX Hackathon and Crypto Summit last March. SBF’s uncle, James Fox Miller, touted his wife’s role with the hackathon.

James Fox Miller, an attorney, also bragged about his lifelong friend and law partner David Boies. Last November, REDBROWARD raised questions about Boies suing FTX and its celebrity spokespersons in behalf of creditors. Last week. REDBROWARD reported Barbara Miller was listed as an FTX creditor in court documents.

On Sunday, the NY post wrote, “Uncle Jimmy wrote on his Facebook page about the getaway describing it as ‘our 35th . . . It is really interesting watching the younger generations start to bond. It is unlikely they will ever have the kind of friendship David Boies and I have forged over 60 plus years. It is unique. We started these trips in the hopes that our children and grandchildren could learn what true friendship is all about.’”

The NY Post also raised questions about Barbara Miller’s role in securing a bond for SBF’s release from jail.

“Interesting, because so close are Fox Miller and Barbara Miller to SBF that people involved in the FTX imbroglio say the couple may have been the yet-to-be named sources of his bond money that allows him to remain under house arrest,” NY Post reporter Charles Gasparino wrote. “Full disclosure: I could not confirm those rumors in part because the Millers haven’t returned numerous emails and calls.”

Those questions may be answered this week.

Uncle Of FTX Founder Sam Bankman-Fried Worried About NFL Quarterbacks Invested In Bitcoin(!)

Chutzpah: extreme self-confidence or audacity.
“love him or hate him, you have to admire Cohen’s chutzpah”


James Fox Miller, the uncle of FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried, loves to share his thoughts with the world. In addition to a vanity blog, Miller posts a daily stream of consciousness blog on Facebook from his villa in Florence, Italy. REDBROWARD recently reported how Miller revealed his wife, Broward Democrat lobbyist Barbara Miller, worked for FTX. Miller’s law firm, Boies Schiller, is rumored to represent investors angry at professional athletes who promoted FTX.

So, why did James Fox Miller spend Wednesday morning blogging about NFL quarterbacks and cryptocurrency?

Miller wrote, “Remember all those high salary athletes who chose to be paid in crypto? I hope they diversified their asset portfolio or they took a huge hit as they ever had on the field. I think Aaron Rodgers was paid some of his salary in Bitcoin. Trevor Lawrence took his entire $22 million plus signing bonus in Bitcoin. Oh my!

Oh my is right. Miller has his facts totally wrong.

Jacksonville Jaquars QB Trevor Lawrence did not get his signing bonus in Bitcoin. In fact, Lawrence signed a lucrative endorsement deal with FTX!

This groundbreaking deal with Lawrence marks the first endorsement deal ever in which a significant signing bonus has been paid entirely in cryptocurrency,” FTX said in a release last year when the partnership with Lawrence was announced.

“Trevor Lawrence is the future of professional football and cryptocurrency is the future of money, so the partnership was a no-brainer,” said Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of Blockfolio. “But as impressive as Trevor is on-the-field, I was most impressed with his character and charitable focus off the field.”

Did SBF tell Uncle Jimmy about the deals with NFL QBs like Trevor Lawrence and Tom Brady?

Was Uncle Jimmy always so wary of cryptocurrency?

Why is Uncle Jimmy even talking about crypto?
