Modulo Capital was founded by three former Jane Street traders who employed SBF and Ellison before entering the crypto industry. The company operates in a luxury building in the Bahamas where SBF and Ellison reside.
This $400 million investment in Modulo Capital was among the largest investments made by Alameda. Modulo Capital also met with other financial investors before Alameda, according to anonymous sources.
SBF was arrested on 12 December in the Bahamas for crimes such as fraud and money laundering. The SBF has agreed to extradition to the United States to face charges.
