FTX’s New Leadership Seeks Funds Through Lawsuit Against Former Associate

FTX’s new CEO is aggressively pursuing ways to secure funds for the struggling exchange. Along with seeking refunds on celebrity endorsements, FTX has filed a lawsuit against its former associate, LayerZero, accusing them of taking advantage of FTX’s downfall using insider information.

The exchange is using the Bankruptcy Code to take legal action and recover property transfers. FTX is seeking over $41 Million from LayerZero, claiming that they demanded immediate repayment of a $45 Million loan while knowing about FTX’s liquidity crisis.

Despite the fact that FTX and LayerZero had agreed to resolve the loan through equity payments, FTX alleges that LayerZero engaged in questionable practices until facing legal threats from debtors. FTX states that LayerZero and its employees created accounts on the exchange and aimed to withdraw funds before FTX’s collapse.
