FTX Crypto Exchange’s Shocking Mismanagement Uncovered

FTX Crypto Exchange’s Shocking Mismanagement Uncovered

According to a newly published court document, the CEO of FTX, John J. Ray III, has revealed issues with the exchange's management.

The report states that FTX had poor control processes and record-keeping, leading to mismanagement of funds and business malpractices that ultimately caused the exchange to collapse in November 2022.

It has also been disclosed that FTX stored private keys to its customers’ crypto wallets on Amazon Web Services (AWS), a third-party platform. This revelation has raised concerns about the security of users’ funds, as compromising private keys can result in losing funds.

The report further stated that FTX was fully aware of how a transparent digital asset exchange should function but deliberately provided false information when asked about implementing cold storage.
