Dec 9 (Reuters) - FTX's Sam Bankman-Fried is willing to
testify during a panel hearing on Dec. 13, the cryptocurrency
exchange's founder said in a tweet on Friday, as regulators
investigate his role in the wake of its collapse.
The tweet comes a day after House Financial Services
Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters told Reuters that she is
prepared to subpoena Bankman-Fried if he does not agree to
appear before the panel next week, and that she is working out
the best way to do it.
"I am willing to testify on the 13th," he tweeted.
It was not clear if he plans to be at the hearing in
person or through a video feed.
FTX filed for bankruptcy last month after a liquidity
crisis that saw at least $1 billion of customer funds vanish.
