FTX begins talks to relaunch international crypto exchange: report

Bankrupt FTX is moving ahead with efforts to revive its flagship international cryptocurrency exchange, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday citing CEO John Ray.

The company “has begun the process of soliciting interested parties to the reboot of the FTX.com exchange,” Ray said, according to the Journal’s report.

The failed crypto company has been holding talks with investors about backing a potential restart of the FTX.com exchange through structures such as a joint venture, the report added citing people familiar with the discussions.

FTX debtors declined to comment on the report.

In November, FTX filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the US following its spectacular collapse that sent shivers through the digital assets industry.

In the days leading up to the failure, customers of Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto exchange withdrew billions of dollars, hobbling the firm’s liquidity. A rescue deal with rival exchange Binance also fell through, precipitating crypto’s highest-profile collapse in recent years.
