The Texas State Securities Board has reportedly expanded its investigation into cryptocurrency platform FTX’s operations and its subsequent bankruptcy to now include scrutinizing promotions by celebrities like Tom Brady and Stephen Curry

  • Bloomberg News first reported the development in the investigation, which is looking at possible securities-law violations. The Texas Tribune has confirmed it.
    • This comes after news broke of a class-action lawsuit being filed last week that also names Curry and Brady, among a slew of other celebrities as well as the Warriors. It was filed in Florida and also names the platform’s former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried.
