FTX Opts for Capital Raise as Alameda Research Winds Down on Trading

<p class="MsoNormal">A troubled cryptocurrency exchange, FTX has opted to raise capital to fill a shortfall as large as $8 billion in its finances. Reuters reports that the exchange will conduct its fundraising next week.</p><p class="MsoNormal">This is even as rival crypto exchange Binance <a href="">bailed out</a> of a non-binding agreement to take over the former's non-US operations on Wednesday. The development comes a day after the Founder and CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried told investors during a call that he was hoping <a href="" target="_blank">FTX</a> could raise between $3 billion and $4 billion in equity and debt to cover the shortfall.</p><p class="MsoNormal">In a memo seen by Reuters, Bankman-Fried told staff members that he had a discussion on the matter with Justin Sun, the Founder of the blockchain, Tron and the cryptocurrency token, Tronix. Meanwhile, Sun tweeted early on Thursday that his firm was "putting together a solution" for FTX. The goal is to "initiate a pathway forward" for the exchange, he said.</p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">Further to my announcement to stand behind all Tron token (<a href="">#TRX</a>, <a href="">#BTT</a>, <a href="">#JST</a>, <a href="">#SUN</a>, <a href="">#HT</a>) holders on <a href="">#FTX</a>, we are putting together a solution together with <a href="">#FTX</a> to initiate a pathway forward. <a href="">@FTX_Official</a></p>-- H.E. Justin Sun🌞🇬🇩🇩🇲🔥 (@justinsuntron) <a href="">November 10, 2022</a></blockquote><p class="MsoNormal">  In a series of tweets later on Thursday, Bankman-Fried also noted that he and his team were "doing everything we can to raise liquidity". </p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">10) So, right now, we're spending the week doing everything we can to raise liquidity.I can't make any promises about that. But I'm going to try. And give anything I have to if that will make it work.</p>-- SBF (@SBF_FTX) <a href="">November 10, 2022</a></blockquote><p class="MsoNormal">Alameda Research </p><p class="MsoNormal">Also, Bankman-Fried in his  tweet on Thursday disclosed that FTX's corporate sibling Alameda Research is gradually drawing its trading activities to a close. The subsidiary, which is based in Hong Kong, is a quantitative cryptocurrency trading firm that provides liquidity to digital assets markets.  </p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">15) First, one way or another, Alameda Research is winding down trading.They aren't doing any of the weird things that I see on Twitter--and nothing large at all. And one way or another, soon they won't be trading on FTX anymore.</p>-- SBF (@SBF_FTX) <a href="">November 10, 2022</a></blockquote><p class="MsoNormal">This is even as a recent review of a private document by CoinDesk showed that Alameda Research's <a href="" target="_blank">balance sheet</a> is full of FTX tokens (FTT), suggesting stronger ties to FTX. This likely explains why the subsidiary of the Bahamas-based cryptocurrency exchange intends to wind down its trading activities.</p><p class="MsoNormal">As of June 30, Alameda Research's assets totalled around $14.6 billion with "unlocked FTT tokens" accounting for 25% or $3.66 million, the firm's single biggest asset. Furthermore, CoinDesk's review found that 15% or $2.16 billion of Alameda Research's assets was held in "FTT collateral." </p><p class="MsoNormal">On the liability side, the outlet found that loans accounted for 92.5% of the trading firm's $8 billion of liabilities, amounting to $7.4 billion of loans. Again, of the total liability, $292 million was in "locked FTT."</p>
