FTX has filed for Chapter 11 Proceedings in the United States. This follows the fiasco over the past couple of days where the company failed to honor its customer’s withdrawal requests.

In a press release shared minutes ago, FTX announced that the group will be filing for Chapter 11 Proceedings in the United States.
According to the release, FTX, Alameda Research, as well as 130 additional affiliated companies that are associated with FTX, have commenced the voluntary proceedings under Chapter 11.
Sam Bankman-Fried has resigned as CEO.
Commenting on the matter was the newly-appointed CEO of FTX Group – John J. Ray III, who said:

The immediate relief of Chapter 11 is appropriate to provide the FTX Group the opportunity to assess its situation and develop a process to maxmize recoveries for stakeholders. The FTX Group has valuable assets that can only be effectively administered in an organized, joint process.”
