Cryptocurrency users express concerns over FTX bankruptcy claims discrepancies


  • Cryptocurrency users are upset about FTX’s low claim prices compared to market rates.
  • PwC is managing FTX’s bankruptcy claims, with creditors required to submit claims by May 15, 2024.
  • FTX warns against unauthorized bids and confirms Galaxy Asset Management as the sole authority for asset sales.

Amidst FTX Digital Markets’ bankruptcy proceedings, cryptocurrency users have raised concerns regarding the pricing discrepancies in the claim window. Users affected by FTX’s bankruptcy are questioning the fairness and transparency of the platform, as claim prices for major cryptocurrencies significantly diverge from current market values.

FTX’s claim window raises eyebrows

The FTX claim window has prompted an outcry from cryptocurrency users, as prices for major assets like Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Solana (SOL), and Binance Coin (BNB) are substantially lower than prevailing market rates. Wu Blockchain‘s findings reveal a stark contrast between FTX’s pricing and the current market values, with BTC, ETH, SOL, and BNB priced well below market rates.

In response to mounting criticism, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) issued an official statement on its website, shedding light on the FTX situation. PwC disclosed that FTX Digital Markets is undergoing a Chapter 11 settlement with FTX Trading and its affiliated debtors, aiming to consolidate assets from both entities’ estates.

FTX’s official liquidator has instructed creditors to submit electronic claims by May 15, 2024. Managed by PwC, the claims portal is slated to make its initial interim distribution in late 2024 or early 2025, with eligible claims denominated in United States dollars.

FTX issues a cautionary statement and obtains court approval

FTX has issued a cautionary statement regarding its authorized investment manager, citing unauthorized third parties attempting to bid on behalf of specific FTX Debtors. Consequently, the firm has taken preemptive measures to address these unauthorized bids. 

Furthermore, FTX announced that the sale of Digital Assets mandated by a bankruptcy court order falls under the exclusive jurisdiction of Galaxy Asset Management, the court-appointed investment manager.

FTX recently secured approval from the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to sell its stake of over $1 billion in the artificial intelligence firm Anthropic.
