FTX enters the second month of bankruptcy, and the new stewards are now eager to sell four of the affiliated businesses. These include the Japanese and European subsidiaries.

FTX plans to sell LedgerX, Japan, and Europe platforms

According to the latest reports, the Thursday petition filed in Delaware, reveals that FTX seeks approval to kickstart bids for clearing broker-dealer Embed and crypto derivatives exchange LedgerX, alongside FTX Japan and FTX Europe.

Accoridng to the latest reports coming from Blockworks, FTX’s new administration had launched a strategic review of the firm’s global assets, with the intention to “maximize recoverable value for stakeholders.”

“The Debtors [FTX] believe a number of these entities have solvent balance sheets, independent management and valuable franchises,” the petition states.

As the online publication mentioned above notes, the lawyers say the firms are still regulated and licensed in the US. FTX’s US operation bought LedgerX in August and Embed in June.

All four entities up for sale have maintained segregated customer accounts, according to the filing.

According to the latest reports, the fraudulently commingling user funds is considered one of the primary reasons FTX imploded.

CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, over time secretly sent $10 billion of customer funds from FTX to sister trading unit Alameda to cover its financial losses, according to the latest reports coming from the press agency Reuters.

“The relative independence of each of the businesses’ operations from the remainder of the debtors’ core business operations make a potential sale process for each of the businesses relatively less complex,” the filing said.
