TrigonX, an Australian cryptocurrency exchange that failed in December with debts of more than $50 million, is the most recent success case to emerge from the FTX insolvency.
TrigonX Emerges from FTX Collapse
As per the reports of The Australian on May 29, business director Matteo Salerno said that TrigonX is set to be revived after creditors accepted the act of company arrangement.
According to Salerno, the return to a “better, more certain and expedient dividend” to creditors would be preferable than liquidation.
He noted that “a liquidation would have been likely to tie up funds held in the administrator’s control for many years. This would have resulted in the substantial depletion of funds available to be distributed for the benefit of creditors.”
TrigonX Withdrawal Halt in December 2022
The digital asset exchange, which was established in 2014, was one of several entities impacted by the FTX’s abrupt collapse in November.
On December 16, 2022, TrigonX hired directors as a result of its inability to comply with withdrawal requests. According to a research by the law firm Kroll, the fall of Trigon was brought on by a number of reasons, including the demise of FTX.
In addition, clients’ legal actions against the company to get their money back made it worse. Prior to FTX’s demise, Kroll also looked into a number of significant transactions involving Salerno and his wife.
Given that the firm was about to be sold, Salerno claimed that the payments questioned in the Kroll investigation were made ““the context of bringing employee entitlements up to date.”
A Multi-billion Dollar Collapse
Notably, the demise of the US-based exchange FTX prompted anxiety among many firms and participants in the cryptocurrency sector. However, Sequoia, FalconX, a cryptocurrency brokerage, and Crypto.com, have previously said that the investments they made in FTX had no impact on the fund they manage.
Additionally, it’s important to mention that FTX is expected to be revived given that the cryptocurrency exchange has successfully retrieved almost $7.3 billion in liquid assets.
