The new comments made by Gary Gensler, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), on FTX triggered a 169% surge in FTT (FTT/USDT) over the past week. Nevertheless, FTT is associated with a lot of uncertainty, as the token lacks utility and no guarantee that any relaunched FTX would use it. These uncertainties make any price predictions highly speculative, but investors will monitor the situation closely.
Last Year’s Wounds of FTX
Last year, FTX exchange filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection due to a liquidity crisis surrounding its token, FTT. The platform’s leverage and solvency issues were unceremoniously exposed. This furthermore caused customers to rush to withdraw their funds and ultimately resulted in FTX being unable to serve its customers triggering a withdrawal spree. As the first anniversary of FTX’s bankruptcy filing approached, interest in the fallen trading platform has grown.
At first, the market downturn of 2022 was cited as the cause, but further inquiry uncovered that the exchange’s CEO and co-creator, Sam Bankman-Fried, had been embezzling from the exchange and improperly using customer funds by loaning them to Alameda Research, FTX’s affiliated hedge fund.
Efforts for Restoring the Platform
Caroline Ellison, the former CEO of Alameda Research, along with former FTX executives Gary Wang and Nishad Singh, have been charged with various crimes. Following the incident, John Ray III assumed the position of interim CEO to lead the efforts to restore the platform. He formed a team to evaluate the feasibility of bringing back the exchange to generate additional benefits for the creditors.
