Remember that infamous New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) study that declared ivermectin to be an ineffective remedy against the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19)? It turns out that the now-defunct cryptocurrency exchange FTX helped pay for it.
On May 16, the FTX Foundation issued a press release “proudly” announcing financial support for the “global expansion of the TOGETHER Trial,” as they called it, the lead investigators of which were awarded that very same day the prestigious Trial of the Year Award from the Society for Clinical Trials (SCT) in San Diego.
“Each year the SCT presents one award for a randomized clinical trial published the previous year that best exemplifies five key criteria including improvements to humankind and provides a basis for substantial and beneficial changes to health care,” the press release states.
“The TOGETHER Trial is the largest placebo-controlled COVID-19 trial and has, so far, evaluated 11 different treatments for COVID-19. On May 16, the TOGETHER trial receives the award and announces more than $18 million in funding and purchase commitments from the FTX Foundation that will enable the expansion of the trial from Brazil and Canada, to include experienced sites in South Africa, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Bahamas, Pakistan, Vietnam, and Ghana.”
The press release goes on to feature quotes from several lead investigators as well as employees at the FTX Foundation, all of whom celebrated and praised each other for this “achievement”.

Did FTX steal crypto investors’ money to fund corrupt studies like the TOGETHER Trial?
David Henderson of EconLog critiqued the FTX-funded anti-ivermectin study and found that “it is not nearly as conclusive and persuasive as the two doctors’ quotes and other media coverage would lead us to believe.”
It turns out trial participants actually did benefit from the use of ivermectin, which in many other countries is available as an over-the-counter medication similar to aspirin. Only in the United States and other heavily globalist-controlled countries is ivermectin prescription-only or not available at all due to political pressures.
Henderson explains that the study’s methodology was flawed because prospective patients who were sick with covid and actually wanted ivermectin shied away from it because of the 50-50 chance that they would end up with a placebo instead.
“Further, those who wanted ivermectin likely would have had a serious case of COVID; hence their desire for the drug,” he says. “Therefore, we can assume that the trial participants skewed toward those who considered themselves at low risk from the illness. This conflicts with the stated goal of the trial, which was to study high-risk patients.”
None of this ended up mattering, though, as the globalists behind the TOGETHER Trial produced the results they wanted. And the FTX Foundation is a big reason why that happened, as the organization presumably stole crypto investors’ money to supply the cash needed to make it happen.
Since we now know that FTX head Sam Bankman-Fried bilked investor cash to funnel it into Ukraine and ultimately the Brandon regime and other Democrats, it is hardly a stretch to assume that the same criminality was used to fund this anti-ivermectin trial, and possibly other studies as well.
“Criminal charges need to be brought to those responsible for shutting down doctors from helping their patients during the pandemic,” wrote a commenter about the anti-ivermectin agenda and everyone behind it, including Bankman-Fried and his FTX scam.
