FTX has reached an agreement with a subsidiary of Miami International Holdings for the sale of its futures and options exchange, Ledgerx.
The transaction is expected to be worth around $50 million, subject to an approval from the US Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, which will hear the case on May 4, 2023.
“The limitations of our authority stopped at (LedgerX). For those same reasons that we were walled off from going past the regulated entity. The other FTX entities were not able to pierce through LedgerX and potentially take customer money, which obviously, as a regulator, is the priority,” Cointelegraph quoted Rostin Behnam, chair of the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) as saying.
