Crypto firm makes moves related to FTX bankruptcy

An executive from a crypto asset management firm recently announced that the company has sold its multi-million dollar claim in FTX’s bankruptcy.

Travis Kling, the Chief Investment Officer at Ikigai Asset Management, shared a thread with his 98,100 followers on the social media platform “X” stating that the firm sold its $65 million claim at a much higher price than initially expected.

His statement was detailed and informative.

“At the end of the day, the decision on whether to sell the claim was mostly a function of opportunity cost – how much do you think the claim price would increase in the future versus taking the cash now and deploying it into something else that can earn a return.”

Kling, the Chief Investment Officer (CIO) of Ikigai, initially had a positive outlook on the potential revival of FTX through FTX 2.0.

However, the firm’s perspective changed after witnessing the mistakes made by the entities behind the bankrupt exchange.

Kling also mentioned that most of the cash obtained from the sale will remain in the fund, and investors who want to redeem their money will be able to do so.

Additionally, he expressed his belief that the digital assets industry is on the brink of another bull run.

“The market looks like it’s well on its way towards another bull cycle. It’s kinda astonishing, to be honest. Despite the industry’s deep and wide missteps over the last few years, it appears the world is giving this ecosystem another crack at it. Another shot to deliver real value.”

FTX had applied for bankruptcy towards the end of 2022 due to the collapse of its native asset and allegations of fraud and mishandling of customer funds against its founder, Sam Bankman-Fried.

Recently, Bankman-Fried has been convicted of his charges and is now facing a maximum sentence of 115 years in prison.
