Top exchange platforms have delisted Solana native USDC and USDT, causing a tumble in its price.
Bahamian Regulators Seize FTX Funds
The Bahamian Securities Commission has seized FTX Digital Markets funds, citing their power as a regulator under the authority of the Supreme Court of the Bahamas. The funds have been put in government-controlled wallets for safekeeping, leading to a fight between regulators in the US and the Bahamas over who gets to control the bankruptcy proceedings for FTX. It’s been reported that FTX Digital Markets filed for Chapter 15 bankruptcy in the Southern District in New York through Bahamas court-appointed joint provisional liquidators, instead of filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Delaware.
