Anthony Scaramucci to invest in former FTX US CEO’s new crypto project

Anthony Scaramucci, an American financier and a former White House Director of Communications, has expressed his interest in the new crypto project of Brett Harrison, the former FTX US head. 

Brett Harrison aims for a fresh start 

Anthony Scaramucci has revealed his interest in investing in the new web3 business venture of Brett Harrison, a former exec of the now-defunct FTX US.

Harrison signed his resignation letter at FTX US last September, just before the devastating collapse of Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto empire in November. He revealed the ugly circumstances that necessitated his decision to relinquish his position at the firm while shedding light on how seemingly impossible it had been to get investors for his new project.

Anthony Scaramucci, the founder and Managing partner of SkyBridge Capital, a digital assets-focused investment firm with roughly $10 billion in assets under management (AUM), has revealed he’s investing in Harrison’s crypto software startup.

According to email correspondence with Bloomberg, Scaramucci has made it clear that he will be investing his personal funds into Harrison Brett’s new business, which seeks to raise $100 million, as a sign of support to the latter.

It’s worth noting that FTX secured a 30% stake in Scaramucci’s SkyBridge Capital before its scandalous collapse last year. Now, Scaramucci and his team are working hard to repurchase the stake held by the bankrupt exchange.

As the world awaits the Oct. 2 trial date of Sam Bankman-Fried, the 30-year-old disgraced entrepreneur has continued to claim he is innocent of all allegations of fraudulent practices that led to the crash of FTX, blaming Binance’s Changpeng Zhao for the firm’s implosion.
