FTX is currently under investigation in various countries. In the U.S., the Department of Justice (DOJ), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) are investigating the exchange for mishandling customer funds. Turkey’s financial intelligence unit started investigating FTX last week. The Bahamas Securities Commission has been trying to seize FTX’s cryptocurrencies.

The new FTX CEO, John J. Ray, III, who replaced Sam Bankman-Fried following the bankruptcy filing, said last week: “Never in my career have I seen such a complete failure of corporate controls and such a complete absence of trustworthy financial information as occurred here.”
