It’s been just revealed that the FTX new management said that the company managed to locate more than $1 billion in assets and these including $720 million in cash as well.
More than $1 billion has been located
Coindesk reported the new management behind FTX has located $1 billion in assets, including $720 million in cash. The report comes amidst the bankruptcy of the platform following reports of criminal activity by founder Sam Bankman-Fried and the company’s top executives.
Watcher Guru notes that the new management team behind FTX is reportedly working to access millions through hundreds of various bank accounts.
The platform is in the midst of attempting to resolve the financial shortcomings of the cryptocurrency exchange, according to statements given to creditors this week.
The same website notes the following:
FTXs new Chief Financial Officer, Mary Cilia, spoke under oath during the bankruptcy proceedings.
“We are reaching out to all of those banks and changing the signatories on the accounts so that we can get access to the accounts and move the cash as much as we can to an authorized depository institution,” she stated.
Cilia added that around $130 million is stuck in Japan. There, “local regulations have ringfenced funds for local customers,” Coindesk reported. Another $6 million has remained for operational expenses.

The Dems to return money from FTX
According to a new report from The Verge, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) are setting aside $815,000, $103,000 and $250,000, respectively of the donations that they received from Bankman-Fried.
As the online publication the Daily Hodl notes, Bankman-Fried was a prolific political donor at the height of his crypto empire. The 30-year-old reportedly gave around $40 million in the last election cycle alone.
After the disaster involving FTX, federal prosecutors allege that Bankman-Fried violated campaign finance laws for falsely claiming that the money he donated was from other people when, in fact, the funds originated from his crypto hedge fund Alameda Research. Check out the previous article.
