On 15 November 2022, O’Leary had an interview on YouTube series Crypto Banter.
Crypto Banter host Ran Neuner asked: “If SBF knocked on your door again and said, ‘Look I failed in my last venture, I have a new crypto venture, I need money,’ would you back him?”
O’Leary replied: “The answer would be yes… I think we can all admit you can love them or hate them given what’s happened… He was one of the most brilliant traders in the crypto universe. He also built one of the most robust platforms. We used FTX actively. It was a very robust platform that allowed us to get information on a compliant basis, so I really like what he built.“
