Can SBF make a comeback?

Hero to Zero

Can SBF make a comeback?

Is there any other realm where someone can go from hero to zero so quickly?

This year we’ve already seen many crypto “messiahs” fall hard from their place atop the totem pole–and each time it seems the fall couldn’t be any harder. But then it somehow happens again–a seemingly untouchable figure in the space completely capitulating in the blink of an eye.
