FTX ‘finds’ more assets
FTX filed for bankruptcy in November 2022, with the exchange’s new leadership stating in December that they could only locate $1 billion or so worth of assets.
However, on Wednesday, FTX bankruptcy attorney noted the team had managed to find more than $5 billion. The amount includes cash, liquid crypto assets and investment securities whose value is pegged at prices when the petition was filed.
While the find adds to the claim holdings, it is yet to be established just how much the company owes creditors. When it filed for bankruptcy protection, it indicated an amount between $1 billion and $10 billion.
