FTX US made a Blockfi deal with the possibility of buying a platform

The American Bitcoin-Exchange FTX unit will issue a renewable BlockFi loan of $ 400 million and will receive an option to redeem the landing platform for $ 240 million. About this was told by CEO BLOCKFI Zach Prince.

According to him, taking into account additional factors, the transaction involves a overall Blockfi assessment to $ 680 million. The agreement awaits the approval by shareholders.

Prince clarified that the FTX’s Sam Bankman-Fried deal with FTX USA led to fear and uncertainty in the cryptocurrency market due to the fall of quotations, the problems of the Cryptoncredification Service of the Celsius and the Defolt of the Hedge Fund Three Arrows Capital (3ac).

The head of Blockfi said that the losses of the platform amounted to about $ 80 million, despite the quick reaction to eliminate positions and hedge. Prince promised to cover losses without influencing customer funds.

In the Same Week, 3ac News Spread Further Fear in the Market. While we were one of the first to fully accelerate our overcollateralized loan to 3AC, as well as liquidate and hedge all collateral, we did experience ~$80M in losses, which is a fraction of losses reported by others.

“All our products and services, including the input and withdrawal of funds, a trading platform, a credit card and global institutional services, continue to work as usual, with additional financial support,” said CEO Blockfi.
