FTX and Alameda Aim to Restitute Customers
The firm’s recent reshuffling of cryptocurrency funds reflects its current intention to liquidate certain digital assets as part of a strategy to settle outstanding debts with creditors.
During 2022, Alameda covertly tapped into customer funds within FTX to repay all outstanding loans due by the summer of that year, all while avoiding suspicion. As of November 2022, Alameda’s debt escalated and reached a staggering $10 billion as a result of its approach to repay creditors using FTX customer assets.
