Crypto: FTX is processing withdrawals again, according to on-chain data


Crypto exchange FTX is processing withdrawals again after a 48-hour shutdown, based on on-chain data from Etherscan. The data shows that withdrawals began shortly before 11 a.m. ET on Thursday.

One withdrawal appears to have pulled over $2 million, according to a screenshot in a tweet from Andrew Thurman, head of content at crypto analytics and data firm Nansen.

The news comes after a chaotic week during which crypto exchange Binance’s chief executive Changpeng Zhao announced an intent to acquire crypto exchange FTX. Zhao eventually pulled out of the deal, citing it as a result of “corporate due diligence, as well as the latest news reports regarding mishandled customer funds and alleged US agency investigations.”
