On Nov. 21, accounts associated with the defunct exchange FTX transferred approximately $3.16 million worth of Ethereum to the troubled former rival Binance. The transaction was facilitated through Wintermute Trading.

Notably, they conducted test deposits on Nov. 21 to the digital asset trading platform FalconX as a preliminary step towards subsequent asset transfers.

Additionally, on Nov. 17, FTX and Alameda-related addresses unstaked 11.5 million MATIC, valued at $9.24 million.

FTX has effectively transferred $488 million across 48 distinct tokens since Oct. 24, indicating a marginal increase from Monday’s closing sum of $452 million.

Based on the data, SOL has been the most transferred asset in the period, with about 6.9 million tokens worth $280.2 million moving between wallets. Others include ETH, MATIC, RNDR, LINK, DYDX, GRT, LDO, MKR, MANA, BAND, CHZ, SUCHI, ENS, MASK and more in that order.

The recent continuous asset sale is part of FTX’s plan to settle its debts. A report indicates that some FTX creditors have recently been offered as much as $0.6 to $0.65 on the dollar, a 30% increase from what they were presented in October.

FTX Case Taking Complex Twists

FTX court dispute continues with more recent developments. A few days ago, the attorney for Brandon Williams, one of the defendants in the FTX saga, asked a Delaware court to delay the ongoing bankruptcy proceedings for more investigations on why the exchange ran insolvent. The defendant seeks to look at the events between November 2021 and October 2022 that led to the demise of FTX.

However, Judge John Dorsey outrightly denied the motion, noting, “If the discovery is as complex as it is said to be, it needs to be started now, not delayed.”
