Many community members have gotten their monies, and investors in FTX in other nations are hoping for a similar outcome.
Users of FTX Japan have begun withdrawing all of their monies as the litigation between FTX and Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) waits patiently for a resolution.
Following Changpeng Zhao's announcement that Binance would liquidate its sizable holdings of FTX Token on November 7, 2022, the crypto exchange FTX and its subsidiaries delayed fund withdrawals. On November 15, 2022, the domino effect compelled Liquid Group, a Japanese cryptocurrency trading platform controlled by FTX since February 2022, to cease withdrawals.
To the relief of several investors, FTX Japan started withdrawals on February 21. This included transferring money from the shut-down exchange to an account with Liquid Japan. Days later, Hibiki Trader, a well-known cryptocurrency trader from Japan, confirmed that they had successfully withdrawn all of their funds.
This tweet's rough translation is as follows:
“All payments completed! To be honest, at first, I felt like I had given up. I would like to express my gratitude to the people in FTXJP for their efforts, as they know the part that was really overlooked.”
FTX Japan reported that consumers withdrew nearly 6.6 billion yen ($50 million) a day after commencing fund withdrawals.
A member of the neighborhood then reacted by stating, "Congratulations on your escape! ! ! "Many people have yet to see their money completely redeemed. Due to the enormous number of consumers who were affected by the FTX collapse, delays in the refund process are anticipated.
Many members of the community have attested to the fact that all of their money has been distributed. The remainder of the world's FTX investors, who are observing, are still optimistic about a similar result.
