Antonym vs. synonym

Antonym vs. synonym

Antonyms are connected to synonyms, which are words with the same meaning. Synonyms and antonyms have different implications; whereas antonyms are words with opposite meanings, synonyms share the same meaning. Consider the word huge as an example.

Small is the antonym of huge. This is because huge and little are polar opposites.

On the contrary, large is a synonym for big since big and large signify the same thing.

Synonym: Moderate, decrease

Antonym: Aggravate

Synonym: Comply, observe

Antonym: Condemn, disjoin

Synonym: Abrogate, annul

Antonym: Setup, establish

Synonym: Awareness, brilliance

Antonym: Stupidity, ignorance

Synonym: Disconcert, rattle

Antonym: Uphold, Discompose

Synonym: Pardon, forgive

Antonym: Compel , Accuse

Synonym: Forsake, renounce

Antonym: Approve, Sanction

Synonym: Despicable, servile

Antonyms

What do antonyms do?

Antonyms make your statements more efficient. Putting contrasting words together, antonyms underline their distinctions and strengthen the single words. You can employ antonyms in three different ways. They are as follows:

Comparisons

Antonyms are excellent for contrasting two distinct items and bringing attention to their distinctions. For instance, when writing an article that compares different topics, employing a couple of antonyms might help you express what distinguishes them.

Assume you’re discussing the differences between living in cities and living in rural locations. Rather than just providing facts about each, employ antonym pairings to express the distinctions more vividly.

So, you may write rural life as “peaceful” and urban life “noisy” or argue that rural regions have “few” people while urban ones have “many.”

Descriptions

The easiest way to express something might be to describe what it isn’t. Using opposite words with a negative can offer additional aspects to your explanations and enhance your choice of words in your writing.

Using the opposites highlights that the individual decides not to appear humble or modest, which imparts a bit more description than just labeling them “arrogant.”

Someone arrogant, for example, can be described as “not humble” or “not modest.” In other words, you’re essentially saying the same thing since humble and modest are antonyms for arrogant.

Remember that positive explanations are generally preferable to negative ones; therefore , opposites words like antonyms are not always appropriate for explanations.

Nonetheless, negative descriptions function as effectively as positive ones. For instance, insects are typically little; therefore, mentioning a “huge insect” accentuates the word.

Antonyms can help you write more persuasively by reinforcing your descriptive words and testing your reader’s expectations.

The literary element of antithesis directs the strength of contrasts by positioning them close to or nearby one another. As previously said, antonyms call to focus on what distinguishes things, making each word appear stronger.

Antithesis goes one step further by combining antonyms. When revising your work, always search for opportunities to employ antithesis.

After landing on the lunar surface, Neil Armstrong’s comment is among the most renowned illustrations of antithesis: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

There are two sets of antonyms here: giant and small, as well as leap and step. If Neil’s first comments on the lunar were , “I took a little stride,” his phrase probably would not be nearly as well-known as now.

His comment highlights the opposing notions of “little stride” and “great leap” by combining them in a single line.

What are contronyms and auto-antonyms?

A contronym is a form of antonym, also referred to as an auto-antonym. Contronyms are words with several meanings, some of which are antonyms of one another.

Contronyms are technically antonyms that also act as homophones (words that sound similar but have distinct meanings).

Contronyms can be classified as any of the antonyms listed below.

Dust is one of the most popular contronyms.

Dust can be used as a verb to mean:

  • Dust removal (as in cleaning)
  • sprinkling with dust (as in putting sugar on food)

Dust, in essence, means both “remove dust” and “add dust.” Because of the difference in definitions, it is a contronym.

Types of antonyms

When we claim antonyms are opposite words, we’re being a little too broad. There are several forms of opposites and various types of antonyms.

Complimentary antonyms

Complementary antonyms (also referred to as contradictory or binary antonyms) are term pairings in which the affirmative use of one implies the negative use of the opposite. In other words, both have an either-or connection: anything may be either one or both at any given moment.

Examples of complementary antonyms:

  • Off – on
  • Fake – Genuine
  • Dead – Alive

Gradable antonyms

Gradable antonyms, also called polar antonyms, are opposing degrees of the same feature. For example, near and far are gradable antonyms since they are opposed in the distance.

However, these characteristics are relative: The mall may be distant from home, but when contrasted to the center of the Pacific Ocean, it is close.

Examples of gradable antonyms:

  • hot — chilly
  • long — short

Relational antonyms

Relational antonyms (also called converse antonyms) perform opposing roles in a reciprocal connection. Teacher and pupil, for example, are relational antonyms, and neither could exist independently of the other, yet their functions are fundamentally different.

Examples of relational antonyms:

  • purchase – sell
  • left – right

How do antonyms and prefixes work together (examples)

Antonyms are frequently used with prefixes (in English). These are tiny syllables ranging from one to three letters that link to the start of words to modify their meaning. A few prefixes invert a word’s meaning, transforming it into its antonym.

Remember that only some words can accept one when employing prefixes, so you can’t just throw them anywhere you want.

Here are some examples of typical prefixes being used as antonym pairings. Each of the following prefixes effectively shifts the meaning of a term to its inverse.

honest — dishonest

appear — disappear

agree — disagree

logical — illogical

legal — illegal

responsible — irresponsible

possible — impossible

decent — indecent

discreet — indiscreet

believer — nonbeliever

binary — nonbinary

linear — nonlinear

lead — mislead

behave — misbehave

fortune — misfortune

function — malfunction

nutrition — malnutrition

adaptive — maladaptive

important — unimportant

necessary — unnecessary

likely — unlikely

How do antonyms and suffixes work together (examples)

Antonyms are not as frequently used with suffixes as used with prefixes (in English).

Suffixes are tiny syllables ranging from one to three letters that link to the end of words to modify their meaning. A few suffixes invert a word’s meaning, transforming it into its antonym.

Here are some examples of typical suffixes being used as antonym pairings. The following suffix effectively shifts the meaning of a term to its inverse.

care: careless

use: useless

hope: hopeless

fear: fearless

pain: painless

Words having opposing meanings, such as heated and cooled, right and wrong, and cheerful and melancholy, are examples of antonyms. Two words that can be interchanged are also considered to be antonyms.

Antonyms are considered advantageous in comparisons to highlight the difference between two opposing items. Antonym pairings can better explain their differences by emphasizing these distinctions.

Complementary antonyms, such as off and on, cannot both be true. Gradable antonyms, such as huge and little, characterize various sizes by displaying opposing proportions of the same characteristic. Relational antonyms, such as students and teachers, depict opposing positions in the same connection.

It means a word that has the exact opposite meaning of the word it’s compared to . A direct antonym is the same.

Synonyms and antonyms are similar. A synonym is the same word meaning, although an exchange of the base word.

A Proclamation on Transgender Day of Visibility,   2024

On Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor the extraordinary courage and contributions of transgender Americans and reaffirm our Nation’s commitment to forming a more perfect Union — where all people are created equal and treated equally throughout their lives.  

I am proud that my Administration has stood for justice from the start, working to ensure that the LGBTQI+ community can live openly, in safety, with dignity and respect.  I am proud to have appointed transgender leaders to my Administration and to have ended the ban on transgender Americans serving openly in our military.  I am proud to have signed historic Executive Orders that strengthen civil rights protections in housing, employment, health care, education, the justice system, and more.  I am proud to have signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law, ensuring that every American can marry the person they love. 

Transgender Americans are part of the fabric of our Nation.  Whether serving their communities or in the military, raising families or running businesses, they help America thrive.  They deserve, and are entitled to, the same rights and freedoms as every other American, including the most fundamental freedom to be their true selves.  But extremists are proposing hundreds of hateful laws that target and terrify transgender kids and their families — silencing teachers; banning books; and even threatening parents, doctors, and nurses with prison for helping parents get care for their children.  These bills attack our most basic American values:  the freedom to be yourself, the freedom to make your own health care decisions, and even the right to raise your own child.  It is no surprise that the bullying and discrimination that transgender Americans face is worsening our Nation’s mental health crisis, leading half of transgender youth to consider suicide in the past year.  At the same time, an epidemic of violence against transgender women and girls, especially women and girls of color, continues to take too many lives.  Let me be clear:  All of these attacks are un-American and must end.  No one should have to be brave just to be themselves.  

At the same time, my Administration is working to stop the bullying and harassment of transgender children and their families.  The Department of Justice has taken action to push back against extreme and un-American State laws targeting transgender youth and their families and the Department of Justice is partnering with law enforcement and community groups to combat hate and violence.  My Administration is also providing dedicated emergency mental health support through our nationwide suicide and crisis lifeline — any LGBTQI+ young person in need can call “988” and press “3” to speak with a counselor trained to support them.  We are making public services more accessible for transgender Americans, including with more inclusive passports and easier access to Social Security benefits.  There is much more to do.  I continue to call on the Congress to pass the Equality Act, to codify civil rights protections for all LGBTQI+ Americans.

Today, we send a message to all transgender Americans:  You are loved.  You are heard.  You are understood.  You belong.  You are America, and my entire Administration and I have your back.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR., President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024, as Transgender Day of Visibility.  I call upon all Americans to join us in lifting up the lives and voices of transgender people throughout our Nation and to work toward eliminating violence and discrimination based on gender identity.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-ninth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-eighth.

                             JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Trysha and Myrddin

“The Sorcerer’s Appraisal” and “Spellbound” are a pair of related quests you’ll pick up in Dragon’s Dogma 2 , but you won’t know they’re related at first. Both quests involve finding five grimoires and giving them to someone — either Myrddin or Trysha — in exchange for a maister skill . Or making some copies and helping both.

Our Dragon’s Dogma 2 quests guide will show you how to start the quests, where to find all five grimoires , and how to complete both quests, “The Sorcerer’s Appraisal” and “Spellbound,” so you can get both Sorcerer maister skills and the Mage maister skill.

How get into Myrddin’s house and start ‘The Sorcerer’s Appraisal’

When you reach the Checkpoint Rest Town in the west of Vermund, there’s a house at the top of the hill with a locked door. If you try to get inside, a man named Myrddin will come out, be rude, and tell you to get lost.

To get him to talk to you, you’ll have to equip your Courtly Tunic and Courtly Breeches — just like you did to get into Disa’s masquerade ball. Do that, and he’ll invite you inside and then ask you to help him complete his collection of books with the “The Sorcerer’s Appraisal” quest. You’ll get a list of five grimoires to collect for him.

Complete “The Sorcerer’s Appraisal” for him, and you’ll learn the Maelstrom spell.

How to find Trysha and start ‘Spellbound’

Starting “Spellbound” is a bit tougher. You have to find a girl named Trysha in a very out-of-the-way house to the north of Melve. When you reach the house, speak with Trysha and her grandmother, Eini, and then wait for Eini to head outside. When you speak with Trysha again, she’ll tell you she wants to learn magic and give you the “Spellbound” quest.

You’ll have to help Trysha to get the Sorcerer’s Meteoron spell and the Mage’s Celestial Paean spell.

Should you give the grimoires to Myrddin or Trysha?

The simple answer here is: both of them ! But how do you do that?

Since both Myrddin and Trysha want the same grimoires, it initially seems like you have to make a choice about which quest to complete. But there’s a way around that (giving one of them forged copies) at Ibrahim’s Scrap Shop in the Checkpoint Rest Town.

How to make forgeries at Ibrahim’s Scrap Shop

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Ibrahim handing over a forgery at his Scrap Shop

Since both Myrddin and Trysha are asking for the same books, you’ll need to head to Ibrahim’s Scrap Shop in the Checkpoint Rest Town and request forgeries of all of the books you find.

Myrddin is looking to complete a collection of books, but Trysha is trying to actually learn magic. You can get away with giving Myrddin forgeries — especially if you give him multiple books at the same time. Trysha, meanwhile, will know that they’re fakes.

Ibrahim will charge you 6,000 gold per forgery, and you’ll have to wait one day each time you request one. That means you’ll end up spending the better part of a week and 30,000 gold for these quests.

Where to find the grimoires for ‘The Sorcerer’s Appraisal’ and ‘Spellbound’

Both Myrddin and Trysha ask you for the same list of five grimoires:

  • “Fulminous Shield”
  • “Howling Blizzard”
  • “Let There Be Light”
  • “Nation’s Death Knell”
  • “Towering Earth”

You only need to find one copy of each grimoire since you’ll be making copies of (most of) them, but there are two books — “Howling Blizzard” and “Nation’s Death Knell” — that you can find two real copies of.

Beyond that, if something goes wrong, you can get away with only handing over three of the grimoires to each of them and still get (most of) the rewards.

‘Let There Be Light’ location

Dragon’s Dogma 2 route to Myrrdin’s balcony so you can steal Let There Be Light

You can find the “Let There Be Light” grimoire inside Myrddin’s house , but if you just walk upstairs and grab it, he’ll get mad and attack you for stealing. (You can kill him and use a Wakestone if necessary — he’s pretty forgiving after that, apparently.)

Instead, head outside and face the front of the house. Climb the crumbling wall on the right and work your way back to the front corner. Jump from the end of the wall to the balcony and head inside. “Let There Be Light” is in the first room and you can take it without him noticing.

‘Fulminous Shield’ location

Dragon’s Dogma 2 buying Fulminous Shield from Dudley

The “Fulminous Shield” tome is actually the easiest to find. You can buy it in Melve from the the traveling merchant, Dudley.

‘Nation’s Death Knell’ location #1

Dragon’s Dogma 2 route to the castle in the Ancient Battleground

North-northeast of the Checkpoint Rest Town, there’s an area called the Ancient Battleground, which you may have passed through en route to the Sphinx . There’s usually a drake guarding the area, but you can skirt around the edges of the battleground to avoid it (or use the ballistae scattered around to pick a fight).

Dragon’s Dogma 2 picking up Nation’s Death Knell in the Ancient Battleground

At the northwest end of the battleground, you’ll find the entrance to a (mostly collapsed) castle that’s full of skeletons. Loop around the inside and watch for a large room on your right . You’ll find a copy of “Nation’s Death Knell” inside.

‘Towering Earth’ location

You can get the “Towering Earth” grimoire from Magistrate Waldhar once you get him settled into the library inside The Gracious Hand’s Vaults — which you do as part of “The Caged Magistrate” quest .

‘Howling Blizzard’ location and ‘Nation’s Death Knell’ location #2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 map showing the location of the Howling Blizzard and Nation’s Death Knell grimoires

Both “Howling Blizzard” and another copy of “Nation’s Death Knell” can be found in the Waterfall Cave northeast of Melve and the Borderwatch Outpost. It’s a tough cave to tackle — there are a ton of goblins, a chimera, and (eventually) a lich. You have to get through the entire lower level, and then climb up to the second floor. You’ll find a treasure chest containing both “Howling Blizzard” and “Nation’s Death Knell” in a large room. Note that when you open it, you’ll get attacked by a lich.

‘Howling Blizzard’ location #2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 speaking to Wendy about her copy of Howling Blizzard

Right on the southern edge of the Nameless Village , as you’re entering the town, watch for a woman named Wendy. She’s willing to trade a copy of “Howling Blizzard” for a copy of “Fulminous Shield.”

Take your copy of “Fulminous Shield” to Ibrahim and have a forgery made. Give the forgery to Wendy, and she’ll hand over a(nother) copy of “Howling Blizzard.”

How to complete ‘The Sorcerer’s Appraisal’

Dragon’s Dogma 2 completing The Sorcerer’s Appraisal quest with Myrrdin

If you’re looking to complete both quests, visit Myrddin first to complete “The Sorcerer’s Appraisal.” If you complete “Spellbound” first, he’ll be upset (for spoiler reasons) and won’t help you.

Once you’ve made the forgeries, head back to Myrddin’s home in the Checkpoint Rest Town and deliver them. If you deliver him (at least) three books at once, he won’t notice they’re forgeries. And that’s it.

You’ll receive Myrddin’s Chronicle (which teaches you one of the Sorcerer maister skills, Maelstrom ), the Ares Morpho Robe , and 11,000 gold .

How to complete ‘Spellbound’

“Spellbound” requires you to take the (real) books back to Eini and Trysha’s house.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 delivering grimoires to Trysha for Spellbound

Hand over three of them at once and she’ll give you a Turquoise Ring .

You’ll then get an objective to check on her in a few days time. You don’t actually have to wait that long, though. Head to the campsite just to the west and sleep until the next morning.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 fighting Trysha during Spellbound

When you return, Trysha will be unable to control her new magic. Don’t attack her . Just avoid her spells and keep running around her. Try to stick near the front of the house — your goal is to wait until she’s out of stamina, and then grab her. She can (and will) teleport to the roof over the door and you won’t be able to reach her. If you stay close to it, she’ll teleport elsewhere.

When you see she’s winded, run to her and grab on. After a few seconds, you’ll get a cutscene of Eini in the house caring for Trysha and another objective to check on her in a few days.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 completing Spellbound with Trysha and Eini

Once again, just head to the campsite and sleep for one night. When you return, she’ll be awake and thankful. You’ll receive a Cast Stone staff and a Conjurer’s Jottings that will teach you the (a?) Sorcerer maister skill Meteoron .

Before you leave, speak to Trysha’s grandmother, Eini (not her grandfather, Eino). She’ll give you an Enchanter’s Almanac that teaches you the Mage maister skill Celestial Paean .

Why do we celebrate Easter with eggs? How the Christian holy day is commemorated worldwide

How does your family celebrate easter email julia, [email protected], or tag her on instagram @juliamariegz to tell us.

The shelves of supermarkets are lined with Peeps, chocolate bunnies, plastic grass and baskets filled with goodies. Easter and the Easter Bunny are hopping into town this Sunday, and millions of people around the world are preparing to celebrate.

Easter is a Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the wiping away of sin. Traditions and religious rituals for Easter vary among denominations and across the globe, but many Christians observe the holiday through church services and prayer.

Here are some key facts about the history of Easter and how people commemorate the day. 

Is it hard to remember when Easter is? Why does Easter change every year? Here's how the date has been historically determined.

What is the history of Easter?

Easter, which commemorates the resurrection of Jesus Christ three days after he was crucified by Romans around 30 A.D. , used to be celebrated every Sunday.

According to Timothy P. O’Malley, a faculty member at the University of Notre Dame's McGrath Institute for Church Life, early Christians didn't have an annual commemoration of Easter the way we do today.

He said Easter's roots date back to a day in the week when "Christ rose from the dead."

Therefore, he said, they celebrated every single Sunday like it was Easter.

"But by the second and third centuries, there comes to be an annual celebration of Easter," O'Malley previously told USA TODAY. He added that the celebration later grew.

What is Holy Week?

Easter marks the last day of the Holy Week, which consists of several days that each carry their own significance . These include: 

  • Palm Sunday : commemorating when Jesus entered Jerusalem
  • Holy Thursday : commemorating the Last Supper and washing of feet 
  • Good Friday : commemorating Jesus' crucifixion and death
  • Easter Sunday : commemorating the resurrection of Jesus

The Catholic Mass

Easter mass is one of the longest sessions of the Catholic mass. For some, the Easter Vigil begins after sunset on Saturday night or early Sunday morning into the sunrise of Easter. With more readings, songs and rituals, mass can be anywhere from two to three hours.

Some Christian churches, such as Catholic and Orthodox churches, also celebrate the Octave of Easter – an eight-day period that begins on Easter Sunday as "the formal celebration of the feast of Easter," O'Malley says.

Why does the date of Easter change each year?

The date of Easter hops around each year – typically between March 22 and April 25. In short, the holiday falls on the first Sunday after the full Moon on or following the spring equinox.

Western Christianity uses the Gregorian calendar. In 2024, Easter falls on March 31.

But, Orthodox Christianity calculates the date of Easter using the Julian Calendar. This year, their Easter falls on Sunday, May 5, according to Christianity.com.

How did the Easter Bunny and eggs become symbols of the holiday?

Beyond religious rituals, commercial celebrations of Easter have popularized the holiday's symbols of the eggs, chicks and, of course, the Easter Bunny.

These symbols have religious roots, experts say. In the northern hemisphere, where Easter occurs in spring, images of new life associated with the season are linked to the holiday, O’Malley says.

The bunnies, chicks and eggs are signs "new life and fertility around the spring time," O'Malley says.

According to History.com , Easter eggs are also "said to represent Jesus’ emergence from the tomb and resurrection."

The practice of dyeing eggs dates back to the ancient Middle East when people used onion skins to color them, Nadieszda Kizenko, director of religious studies at the University at Albany, previously told USA TODAY.

Eggs were also decorated because of their importance, Kizenko said. In the early days of Lent – the time period of fasting between Ash Wednesday and Easter – meat was given up, as well as dairy products.

"Being able to eat eggs once again was a really big deal. That's when people started the custom of decorating eggs," Kizenko said.

Easter celebrations vary around the world

Of course, Easter celebrations differ around the world – depending on both regional traditions as well as denominational practices across different Christian churches.

U.S. families celebrating Easter may anticipate a visit from the Easter Bunny this weekend, but young children in France , for example, are told that bells will bring them eggs.

"To be honest, I find (this tradition to be) a little less creepy than a giant bunny coming into my house to deliver candy," O'Malley joked. "The bells leave the churches and drop candy everywhere."

Kizenko also noted that a significant difference between Easter celebrations in the U.S. compared to other parts of the world is the commercialization of it, similar to Christmas.

Sam Bankman-Fried Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison

Mr. Bankman-Fried, who was convicted of stealing $8 billion from customers of his FTX cryptocurrency exchange, faced a maximum sentence of 110 years.

By David Yaffe-Bellany and J. Edward Moreno

David Yaffe-Bellany and J. Edward Moreno have covered the collapse of FTX extensively.

Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange who was convicted of stealing billions of dollars from customers , was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Thursday, capping an extraordinary saga that upended the crypto industry and became a cautionary tale of greed and hubris.

Mr. Bankman-Fried’s sentence was shorter than the 40 to 50 years that federal prosecutors had sought after a jury found him guilty of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering — charges that carried a maximum penalty of 110 years behind bars. But the punishment was far above the six and a half years requested by his defense lawyers.

Mr. Bankman-Fried, 32, did not visibly react as Judge Lewis A. Kaplan handed down the sentence in Federal District Court in Manhattan. His parents, the law professors Joe Bankman and Barbara Fried, sat two rows from the front, staring at the floor.

“He knew it was wrong. He knew it was criminal,” Judge Kaplan said of Mr. Bankman-Fried’s actions.

Before the sentence was delivered, Mr. Bankman-Fried, cleanshaven and wearing a loosefitting brown jail uniform, apologized to FTX’s customers, investors and employees.

“A lot of people feel really let down, and they were very let down,” he said. “I’m sorry about that. I’m sorry about what happened at every stage.” He added that his decisions “haunt” him every day.

Mr. Bankman-Fried was also ordered to forfeit about $11 billion in assets.

At the sentencing, Judge Kaplan pointed to testimony from Mr. Bankman-Fried’s trial that showed the FTX founder’s extreme appetite for risk, saying it was his “nature” to make colossally dangerous bets. “There is a risk that this man will be in a position to do something very bad in the future,” he said.

Judge Kaplan also said Mr. Bankman-Fried had lied on the witness stand and failed to take responsibility for his crimes. “He regrets that he made a very bad bet about the likelihood of getting caught,” he said. “But he’s not going to admit a thing.”

Mr. Bankman-Fried, currently housed at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, will be sent to a low- or medium-security prison, the judge said, very likely near his parents’ home in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The sentencing signified the finale of a sweeping fraud case that exposed the rampant volatility and risk-taking across the loosely regulated world of cryptocurrencies. In November 2022, FTX imploded virtually overnight, erasing $8 billion in customer savings. At a trial last fall, he was convicted of seven counts of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering.

His sentence ranks as one of the longest imposed on a white-collar defendant in recent years. Bernie Madoff , who orchestrated a notorious Ponzi scheme that unraveled during the 2008 financial crisis, received a 150-year sentence in 2009. He was in his 70s and died 12 years later. Elizabeth Holmes , who was convicted of defrauding investors in her blood-testing start-up, Theranos, was sentenced to 11 years and three months in 2022.

A representative for Mr. Bankman-Fried declined to comment. In a statement, his parents said, “We are heartbroken and will continue to fight for our son.”

Ira Lee Sorkin, the defense lawyer who represented Mr. Madoff, said he was not surprised Mr. Bankman-Fried got a stiff sentence, albeit a shorter one than his own client.

“He is 32 years old, and he will see the light of day,” he said of Mr. Bankman-Fried. “But he is going to spend a lot of time in a cell.”

Just 18 months ago, Mr. Bankman-Fried was a corporate titan and one of the youngest billionaires on the planet. With his face plastered on billboards and magazine covers, he could raise money seemingly at will. He hobnobbed with actors, musicians and superstar athletes, cultivating an image as a nerdy do-gooder who intended to donate all his wealth to charity.

Based in the Bahamas, FTX was one of the largest marketplaces for cryptocurrencies — an easy-to-use platform where investors could exchange dollars or euros for digital coins like Bitcoin and Ether. Its valuation was north of $30 billion.

But over less than a week in November 2022, a run on deposits exposed an $8 billion hole in FTX’s accounts. Mr. Bankman-Fried resigned, handing over power to a team of lawyers who promptly filed for bankruptcy. The next month, he was arrested at his luxury apartment in the Bahamas and charged with stealing from customers to finance billions in political contributions, charitable donations and investments in other start-ups.

The investigation moved with startling speed for such a complex case. Within months, three of Mr. Bankman-Fried’s top deputies, including a former girlfriend, pleaded guilty to fraud charges and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors. Mr. Bankman-Fried was initially granted home detention, but the judge revoked his bail in August after ruling that he had tried to intimidate witnesses, and sent him to the Brooklyn detention center.

At the trial in October, Mr. Bankman-Fried’s former colleagues testified for the prosecution, telling a jury that they had conspired with him to loot customer accounts. When he took the witness stand, Mr. Bankman-Fried seemed evasive at times, repeatedly claiming that he couldn’t remember crucial details of his FTX tenure.

“When he wasn’t outright lying, he was often evasive, hairsplitting, dodging questions,” Judge Kaplan said on Thursday. “I’ve never seen a performance quite like that.”

After he was convicted, Mr. Bankman-Fried’s lawyers and family embarked on a long-shot campaign to secure a lenient sentence and rewrite the public narrative about FTX’s failure. In a sentencing memo, Marc Mukasey, one of the defense lawyers, argued that Mr. Bankman-Fried had sometimes behaved strangely on the stand because he was autistic. He also cited the mogul’s charitable initiatives, arguing that FTX was supposed to be a force for good in the world.

But the defense’s case centered on the money that FTX users lost when the exchange went under. Since FTX’s bankruptcy, its new leaders have cobbled together billions of dollars to return to customers, partly by liquidating stashes of digital coins and selling Mr. Bankman-Fried’s stakes in other companies. Mr. Mukasey claimed those customers would eventually be made whole through the bankruptcy process, putting the losses caused by Mr. Bankman-Fried’s actions at “zero.”

The prosecutors rejected that argument. While FTX’s new leadership has predicted that customers will eventually get their deposits back, the money they receive will be equivalent to the dollar value of their holdings in November 2022 — and won’t account for a recent surge in the crypto markets that sent Bitcoin to its highest-ever price .

Mr. Bankman-Fried “demonstrated a brazen disrespect for the rule of law,” prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memo. “He knew what society deemed illegal and unethical, but disregarded that based on a pernicious megalomania.”

On Thursday, Judge Kaplan said of FTX’s victims: “The defendant’s assurance that they will be paid in full is misleading. It is logically flawed. It is speculative.”

Over the past several weeks, the prosecutors filed hundreds of letters from FTX customers that laid out how the financial losses had devastated their lives. One customer said the collapse had led to “suicidal thoughts.”

“Sam Bankman-Fried has to think for the rest of his life of the multitude of lives he destroyed with his selfishness and superficiality,” the customer wrote. “I really hope that justice will teach him the difference between life and video games.”

Another FTX user, Sunil Kavuri, who lost $2 million when the company collapsed, testified at the hearing that the implosion had wiped out money he planned to spend on a house and his children’s education.

“I’ve lived the FTX nightmare for almost two years,” he said.

When Mr. Bankman-Fried spoke, he offered a sometimes-rambling assortment of thoughts, apologizing for his mistakes while insisting that FTX had enough assets to make customers whole.

“I made a series of bad decisions,” he said, his leg shaking. “They weren’t selfish decisions. They weren’t selfless decisions. They were bad decisions.”

Mr. Bankman-Fried has vowed to appeal his conviction, hiring a lawyer from the law firm Shapiro Arato Bach to oversee that effort. But in his remarks, he appeared to accept that he would be in prison for some time.

“At the end of the day, my useful life is probably over now,” he said.
