Someone who is not identified, or a group of buyers, may soon own a property located in Washington D.C.’s Capitol Hill neighborhood that was previously connected to the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange FTX and its former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried.

According to an updated listing on, the property was listed as “contingent”, which suggests that the party handling the deal has accepted an offer, but the transaction has not yet been finalized. The townhouse, which is located near the U.S. Capitol building, was reportedly owned by Guarding Against Pandemics, a non-profit organization established by Gabriel Bankman-Fried, the brother of the former FTX CEO.

As FTX collapsed and criminal charges were brought against Sam Bankman-Fried, U.S. authorities investigated assets connected to the crypto exchange and its former CEO, including those used for political donations. Bankman-Fried will face two criminal trials in October 2023 and March 2024 for charges, including allegations of campaign finance law violations.

Gabriel Bankman-Fried reportedly stepped down from his position as executive director of Guarding Against Pandemics in November 2022.
