These activities include advising cybersecurity firm Sygnia to strengthen its international crypto platform, reviewing the terms sheet for an exchange restructuring plan, exploring the following steps to launch the exchange, and reviewing and finalizing the FTX 2.0 document for distribution to investors.
CEO Ray also reviewed the summary of steps submitted by investment bank Perella Weinberg Partners LP regarding the restart plan. The CEO regularly contacted the investment bank to discuss the restart plan throughout the weekend.
Court filings further reveal that John Ray III reviewed the list of bidders for FTX 2.0. As previously reported, venture capital firm Tribe Capital expressed interest in restarting the bankrupt crypto exchange.
