FTX Unveils Billions in Assets, including $1.6B in Solana and $560M in Bitcoin

The bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX has unveiled
assets worth USD $7 billion and billions of dollars in payments made to senior
executives, including its Founder, Sam Bankman-Fried. FTX’s financial
disclosure, made in a court filing on Monday, comes ahead of Bankman-Fried’s
trial expected next month.

According to the court
document, the company’s assets comprise a mix of cryptocurrencies and real
estate holdings. Notably, these assets include a substantial USD $1.16 billion
in Solana (SOL) tokens, USD $560 million in Bitcoin (BTC), and USD $200 million
worth of real estate holdings in the Bahamas.

FTX’s Controversial
Executive Payout

One of the most
contentious aspects of FTX’s financial revelation is the disclosure of
substantial payments to senior executives in the months preceding the
bankruptcy. Founder Bankman-Fried, along with other executives like Nishad Singh,
Gary Wang, and Caroline Ellison, allegedly received a staggering USD $2.2
billion in cash, crypto, equity, and real estate.

Besides the digital
assets holdings, the court document reveals the company’s extensive real estate
portfolio comprising 38 condos, penthouses, and other properties. The fate of
these properties, like the rest of FTX’s assets, remains uncertain amid the
ongoing bankruptcy proceedings.

Under the leadership of
the new CEO, John Ray III, FTX has embarked on a mission to reclaim funds
previously donated to politicians and charitable organizations. These efforts
include attempting to recover donations made to institutions such as the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, which has decided
to return USD $550,000.

Besides that, FTX is pursuing
payments made to high-profile athletes and sports teams as celebrity endorsements.
According to a report by Finance Magnates, notable among the sought-after funds
are $750,000 payments made to the former basketball professional Shaquille
O’Neal.

FTX Pursue Payments Made to
Celebrities

Additionally, FTX is
seeking to recoup more than USD $300,000 and $270,000 paid to Tennis player
Naomi Osaka and former basketball star David Ortiz, respectively. Many of these celebrities
are facing class action lawsuits filed by former FTX’s customers whose funds are
now caught up in the bankruptcy proceedings.

Besides that, FTX has taken legal action against LayerZero Labs, a cross-chain
protocol, seeking the recovery of a $21 million investment. FTX claims that
LayerZero withdrew the funds illegally before FTX collapsed despite being
aware of the exchange’s liquidity crisis.

Meanwhile, Ryan Salame,
the former Co-CEO of FTX’s Bahamian subsidiary and a close associate of
Bankman-Fried, entered
a guilty plea last week
for making tens of millions of dollars in illegal campaign donations. As part
of his plea, Salame has agreed to forfeit more than USD $1.5 billion.
