Dogecoin DOGE/USD founder Billy Markus took a break from code-writing to tweet out a resoundingly ironic response to the news of FTX FTT/USD founder Sam Bankman-Fried's arrest in the Bahamas.
"Such a good day," he posted.
What Happened: On Monday evening, Markus tweeted “Christmas came early," following news of Bankman-Fried's arrest and Bahamian authorities saying the U.S. is likely to request his extradition.
“The Bahamas and the United States have a shared interest in holding accountable all individuals with FTX who may have betrayed the public trust and broken the law,” Phillip Davis, Prime Minister of The Bahamas, said in a statement.
