However, on Wednesday night, the plan appears to have crumbled, hours after chief executive officer, Mr Changpeng Zhao, tweeted that FTX “going down is not good for anyone in the industry.”

said it backed out after reviewing the company’s structure and books.

“Our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity, but the issues are our control or ability to help,” said.

“As a result of corporate due diligence, as well as the latest news reports regarding mishandled customer funds and alleged U.S. agency investigations, we have decided that we will not pursue the potential acquisition of [FTX],” said in a tweet.

“Every time a major player in an industry fails, retail consumers will suffer,” continued.

“We have seen over the last several years that the crypto ecosystem is becoming more resilient and we believe in time that outliers that misuse user funds will be weeded out by the free market,” it added.
