FTX’s Resurrection: FTX 2.0 Revealed, FTT Token Skyrockets 17%

FTX Exchange, once a prominent centralized cryptocurrency platform and the world’s third-largest in July 2021, focused on leveraged products and derivatives. It was established in 2018 by Sam Bankman-Fried, an MIT graduate and former trader at Jane Street Capital. The exchange provided an array of trading options, including leveraged tokens, volatility products, options, and derivatives. Over 300 cryptocurrency pairs, such as BTC/USDT, ETH/USDT, XRP/USDT, and FTT/USDT (its native token), were available in spot markets. Unfortunately, in November 2022, FTX and its affiliated entities experienced a significant downfall. FTX US catered to U.S. residents, while the Bahamas-based FTX had distinct capital structures. Currently, Revival Plans and Strategic Development for FTX 2.0 were strategized under the leadership of CEO John Ray III, FTX has revealed its resurrection plans through a new initiative called FTX 2.0. Recently filed documents in the United States Bankruptcy Court shed light on the comprehensive strategy devised by Ray and his team for the relaunch of the exchange.

FTT Token Rally and Market Sentiment

Despite claiming to primarily focus on administrative and legal matters, the court filing reveals that Ray actively participated in developing the strategy for FTX 2.0. He invoiced the bankruptcy estate for over $290,000, and an additional $1.3 million was paid to other workers who took charge of the exchange during the insolvency period. According to the court documents, John Ray III conducted research to identify potential buyers for FTX 2.0. Of particular note is the interest expressed by venture finance company Tribe Finance in reviving the defunct crypto exchange. 

The native token of FTX, FTT, experienced a surge of 8%, reaching a trading value of $1.08 at the time of the announcement. This represents a positive market response and renewed confidence in FTX’s potential under the new FTX 2.0 architecture.
