FTX merchandise were put in trash bags at Solana Embassy in Wynwood at a recent event.

The embassy was opened as a store and education space for the Solana blockchain for which FTX was a major backer.

The merchandise included hundreds of FTX Miami T-shirts, framed FTX-branded Heat jersey, a poster signed by chess grandmaster Magnus Carlsen among other stuff.

Navy FTX bean bags, evoking where Sam Bankman-Fried claims he slept, were also put in storage at Solana Embassy.

FTX Lounge at the Solana Embassy was supposed to be the highlight of the place.

Vibhu Norby, chief executive officer of Solana Space, told Bloomberg how people were making jokes, and coming in to take pictures with FTX stuff.

The entire crypto market has erased almost $1.5 trillion value in 2022.
