FalconX Discloses Assets Locked on FTX

Crypto trading firm FalconX said Thursday it has a portion of its assets locked on bankrupt crypto exchange FTX.

"FalconX balances locked on FTX represented 18% of our unencumbered cash equivalents. This ratio was within our counterparty exposure limits," FalconX said in a blog post.

It said it will remain well-capitalized even if it has to write those assets off as a total loss. FalconX does not have exposure to Genesis, Alameda or BlockFi.

"Recent events have validated our approach to risk management. We are market risk neutral and extend credit overcollateralized on our platform. We utilize real-time risk monitoring, and we operate within the confines of our counterparty exposure limits," the blog post said.
