FTX Customers to Receive Nearly All Owed Funds, Some to Get More

FTX, the cryptocurrency exchange that imploded two years ago, has announced that nearly all of its customers will receive the money they are owed, with some even getting more than expected. In a court filing on Tuesday, FTX revealed that it owes about $11.2 billion to its creditors, but has between $14.5 billion and $16.3 billion to distribute to them.

The filing outlined a plan to pay claims in full and provide supplemental interest payments to creditors, with an interest rate of 9%. This news comes as a relief to investors who suffered losses when FTX sought bankruptcy protection in 2022, with bitcoin prices soaring since then.

Customers and creditors with claims of $50,000 or less are set to receive about 118% of their claim, covering approximately 98% of FTX customers. The recovery of funds was made possible by monetizing assets held by Alameda or FTX Ventures businesses, as well as litigation claims.

Following the collapse of FTX, CEO Sam Bankman-Fried resigned and was later sentenced to 25 years in prison for fraud. The company has since appointed John Ray III as its new CEO, with plans to potentially revive FTX.com. The bankruptcy court is scheduled to hold a hearing on the dispersion of FTX assets on June 25.

Despite the challenges faced by FTX, the news of customers receiving their owed funds and potential revival of the exchange has sparked interest in the cryptocurrency community. The future of FTX remains uncertain, but the possibility of a comeback under new leadership offers hope for investors and creditors alike.
