Shall I blame it on Sam Banksman Fried the owner of FTX and Alameda Research?

According to their website:
Alameda Research is a leading principal trading firm. They use internally developed technology and our team’s deep crypto expertise to trade thousands of digital asset products, including all major coins and altcoins, as well as their derivatives. Source
Many of my circle of friends depend on the income they make from trading cryptocurrencies. If you heard about Futures, Spot, or Margin Trading? Yeah, those kinds of weird stuff my husband doesn't even understand.
This type of trading is in the company like FTX, Binance US, Coinbase Pro, and Coinsph in the Philippines or maybe Blockfi in the UK.
These company called Crypto exchanges where you can deposit and then trade (buy and sell) in different categories such as spot or Futures trading.
The most dangerous one is doing Futures trading. I think it is.
