The Chair of a US Subcommittee Presses FTX for Answers on its Collapse

Last Updated 

Raja Krishnamoorthi, the Chair of the US Panel, urged the past and present CEOs of the insolvent FTX to submit records linked to the exchange's finances.

Before diving into this piece, you may want to catch up on some relevant stories, like Bitcoin exchange Binance issued Cristiano Ronaldo's "CR7 NFT Collection" and how the Australian stock exchange discontinued its Blockchain plan.

The panel is seeking specific information on FTX's downfall and its decision to declare bankruptcy. The cumulative effect of these acts has left the crypto business in a tailspin. Given the present situation, Krishanmoorthi also encouraged FTX to completely comply with his committee's August 30 document request.

The Krishnamoorthi Subcommittee has set a deadline of December 1 for submitting the relevant data and documentation. Explainers of FTX liquidity difficulties, current crypto holdings, a strategy for repaying clients, and balance statements are among the information required.

Chairman Krishnamoorthi further claimed that he had never seen such a total collapse of corporate controls and such a complete lack of trustworthy financial information as transpired here in his tenure. The American people and FTX investors want answers.

The action comes only days after the House Financial Services Committee announced a hearing on the FTX collapse for next month. Along with this, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Richard Durbin have addressed letters to FTX requesting financial information.

In the continuing investigation into the FTX disaster, American and Bahamian officials are debating whether to extradite FTX's former CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried, to the United States for interrogation. The abrupt fall has aroused various worries, and the matter is only becoming more complicated due to the lack of definitive data from the FTX.
