Phoenix, AZ FTX Cryptocurrency Collapse Lawyer

FTX formerly acted as a cryptocurrency exchange where people could buy and sell cryptocurrency digital assets like Bitcoin and Dogecoin. It was launched in May 2019 by Sam Bankman-Fried and Gary Wang, after Bankman-Fried co-founded Alameda Research, a crypto hedge fund. Unfortunately, FTX collapsed over a 10-day period in November 2022, eventually leading to a number of FTX cryptocurrency exchange lawsuits.

On November 2nd, cryptocurrency news site CoinDesk revealed that Alameda Research “held a position valued at $5 billion in FTT, the native token of FTX” and “disclosed that Alameda’s investment foundation was also in FTT, the token that its sister company had invented, not a fiat currency or other cryptocurrency,” according to Investopedia. Concerns arose regarding Bankman-Fried’s companies’ undisclosed leverage and solvency, and FTX’s financial stability overall.

Once Changpeng “CZ’’ Zhao, the CEO of the crypto platform Binance, announced on November 6 that his company would sell off all its FTT tokens, many FTX customers started to withdraw their assets from the FTX cryptocurrency exchange, leading to a major liquidity crisis for the company. Ultimately, the exchange filed an emergency Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition in Delaware on November 11, 2022.

Around the same time, evidence came to light that Bankman-Fried had been transferring FTX investors’ money into his Alameda Research investment firm for trading use, which lost an immense amount of money on risky investments. The cryptocurrency exchange’s use of customer funds was not legal, and Bankman-Fried was arrested and is currently facing criminal charges.

Millions of investors could now have their money caught up in a long, complicated bankruptcy process. Many have been filing FTX cryptocurrency exchange lawsuits against entities including FTX Trading Ltd., Bankman-Fried, and even celebrities and other famous personalities who endorsed or promoted the cryptocurrency exchange platform.

After FTX filed for bankruptcy, investors saw their access to billions of dollars in assets suddenly frozen. Customers were left unable to withdraw their funds and in alarming financial positions. The mismanagement of FTX cryptocurrency exchange funds could eventually lead to massive financial losses for an untold number of individuals.
