The story of FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) continues to unfold as lawyers and the court continue to argue about his bail conditions.

SBF’s lawyers have reportedly reached a new bail agreement with United States prosecutors, allowing him to stay at home while restricting him from using some electronic devices and apps.

According to a report by Reuters, the lawyers reached the new agreement on March 27 after a judge brought up the need to send SBF to jail pending trial. The new bail conditions are yet to be approved by U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan, who is overseeing Bankman-Fried’s case.

Under some of the proposed new conditions, Bankman-Fried will be reportedly prohibited from using a smartphone with internet access, and any apps other than voice calls and text messaging. The agreement would also require SBF to use a basic laptop with limited functions and monitoring software to track user activity. The use of any other electronic communication devices is forbidden.

In a letter on Monday, SBF’s parents reportedly agreed to restrict his access to their devices while also signing affidavits not to bring prohibited electronic devices into their home. In case of a “reasonable suspicion” of a violation, SBF must submit his devices for a search.

The new agreement comes a few weeks after Judge Kaplan attempted to ban SBF from using any electronic devices and the internet as a condition of his bail. The judge argued that SBF had a “garden of electronic devices” with access to the internet available at Joe Bankman and Barbara Fried’s California home. Judge Kaplan also argued that there was “probable cause” to believe that SBF was involved in attempted witness tampering.

In early March, Kaplan reportedly expressed concerns over a proposal to put certain restrictions on SBF’s phone and other electronic devices. He specifically suggested that SBF was inventive and could find ways to evade the restrictions.

As previously reported, SBF faces a trial set for Oct. 2, 2023, on criminal charges of stealing billions of dollars in FTX customer funds facilitated through Alameda Research. He is also alleged to have made large illegal political donations. He has pleaded not guilty to eight criminal counts, which could result in 115 years in prison should he be convicted.

In December 2022, Bankman-Fried was released on the conditions of a $250 million bond, home detention, location monitoring and the surrender of his passport. A few days later, some industry investigators spotted transactions allegedly involving SBF cashing out about $700,000 in a crypto exchange in Seychelles. The FTX founder has subsequently denied involvement in this or any other transactions allegedly tied to SBF or FTX.

While SBF has not been banned from Twitter so far, he has stayed away from any social media activity for a while. His last visible activity on Twitter included a repost on Sullivan & Cromwell continuing to represent FTX debtors on Jan. 20, and a “like” on a report that the firm billed $7.5 million for the first 19 days of FTX work.
