The bankruptcy of one of the major cryptocurrency exchanges, FTX, late last year had a huge impact on the market. Because of this, a large number of investors had distanced themselves from cryptocurrencies. Customer funds were used by modifying FTX’s software. The exchange’s chief engineer changed the code to allow Alameda Research, the firm of FTX founder Sam Bankman Fried, to sell its assets even if it had a loss on the money it borrowed. This exemption allowed the company to borrow funds from FTX regardless of the value of the collateral. This code change was detected by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The SEC reported that Alameda Research was receiving unlimited credit. The company had received billions of dollars in loans over two years.
