- Noah Perlman’s family ties to Epstein raise questions about his past role as a federal prosecutor.
- Allegations surround Perlman’s involvement in Gemini’s troubled Earn program and an alleged $1.1 billion fraud.
- Complex connections unfold with Perlman’s role in Farmington State Bank (Moonstone) amid FTX and regulatory challenges.
In a startling revelation, Binance’s Chief Compliance Officer, Noah Perlman, finds himself under intense scrutiny following a recent investigative report by Unlimited Hangout. The report delves into Perlman’s alleged connections to the downfall of FTX, complications at the Gemini exchange owned by the Winklevoss twins, and even associations with the notorious sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
The media outlet alleges that Perlman’s father, renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman, had traveled on multiple occasions on a plane owned by Epstein. Furthermore, the report suggests that Itzhak Perlman accompanied Epstein to Michigan’s Interlochen Center for the Arts, where Epstein later constructed a lodge, described as a troubling “lair to target girls.” These family ties to Epstein raise serious questions about Noah Perlman’s associations, especially considering his past role as a federal prosecutor for the Department of Justice’s Special Coordinator for Crimes against Children.
Perlman’s journey continued as he joined Gemini, the cryptocurrency exchange owned by the Winklevoss Twins, as its Chief Compliance Officer. Although he left Gemini before the New York Attorney General filed a lawsuit against the exchange, Perlman’s alleged heavy involvement in Gemini’s Earn program, which became the focus of a $1.1 billion fraud allegation, has drawn attention. The lawsuit contends that Perlman, during his tenure as Chief Operating Officer, may have played a role in the alleged misconduct surrounding the program.
Adding another layer of complexity, Perlman’s connection with Farmington State Bank, later renamed Moonstone, comes into play. Perlman was listed as a director of FBH Corp., the entity that took over the rural bank in 2019. Moonstone Bank later faced regulatory challenges, with Alameda Research, linked to FTX, acquiring an $11.5 million stake. FTX’s former chief, Sam Bankman-Fried, also reportedly invested $50 million in the troubled bank, which encountered regulatory issues leading to the Federal Reserve initiating an enforcement action shortly before the Bank of Eastern Oregon acquired its deposits and assets.
It is crucial to emphasize that these allegations remain unverified by any official investigations or connections made by global agencies or US authorities. The claims necessitate a response from Binance’s executives and warrant thorough investigation by relevant authorities.
As of now, Noah Perlman has not issued an official statement addressing these allegations. The crypto community and the public await responses from both Perlman and Binance, hoping for clarity on the matter as the situation unfolds.
