The fall of Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto empire happened very quickly and was “pretty shocking,” Bromley said. he qualified “unprecedented” Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.

The FTX team is also coordinating with regulators in the US and around the world.

“Probably, we have witnessed one of the most abrupt and difficult corporate collapses in the history of corporate America“, he claimed.

Once Bankman-Fried took over the business, everyone realized for the first time that “the emperor had no clothes”Bromley told the court.

Asset protection and recovery is one of the main objectives now at FTX, in addition to the implementation of controls and “transparency and investigation,” Bromley said. Maximizing value is also key to the process, whether that means selling or reorganizing businesses. FTX will probably ask the judge for permission to sell some assets “quite quickly”added.
