FTX, the cryptocurrency exchange that collapsed spectacularly in November, is considering reopening at some point in the future as it navigates bankruptcy, its attorneys from Sullivan & Cromwell said in a court hearing on Wednesday.
One potential option discussed was to let FTX’s creditors convert a portion of their holdings to a stake in a reopened exchange.
FTX’s FTT token recently surged 55% following the news.
The FTX attorneys also told the court they’ve recovered $7.3 billion in liquid assets from the defunct exchange, up from January’s $1.9 billion tally. However, they added, FTX is still “far away from an equity distribution.”
