Is Samuel Bankman-Fried counting on Justin Sun to rescue FTX

FTX CEO Samuel Bankman-Fried (SBF) communicated the details of FTX’s situation in a message on the company’s slack channel. The message was leaked online and Cobie, host of uponlytv confirmed its authenticity through sources close to the matter.

The message assures team members that there is communication with external parties for fundraising. SBF shared his plan to raise funds and tackle FTX’s liquidity crisis. In the message he discreetly specifies that Binance never planned to come through with their deal to acquire FTX. 

Binance scrapped its letter of intent to buy rival crypto exchange FTX, according to a spokesperson. Following corporate due diligence and latest reports regarding mishandled customer funds, Binance argued that FTX’s situation is beyond the exchange’s “ability to help.” 

SBF confirms ongoing talks with Justin Sun in his slack message. What’s more, Sun, Grenada’s representative at the World Trade Organization tweeted to his 3.4 million followers that stands with Tron token holders on FTX. 

Sun spared the details and said that further to his announcement to stand behind all TRX, BTT, JST, SUN and HT holders on FTX, his team is putting together a solution together with FTX to initiate a pathway forward.  

Despite the short-term nature of the ongoing liquidity crunch, it remains harmful to industry development. Sun is concerned for investors well-being and his team is working around the clock to avert further deterioration.  

Sun instilled confidence in traders and expressed his faith in the situation. The Tron founder believes the situation is manageable following the holistic approach together with his partners. Sun could therefore potentially rescue FTX exchange if the unconfirmed leak is true. 

FXStreet team has reached out to FTX exchange for comments, awaiting response.
