"The financing will also improve Liquid’s balance sheet and, in turn, its key regulatory metrics, which further corroborates its ongoing licensing opportunities in the key jurisdictions of Japan and Singapore," the exchange said.
While the terms of the deal remain unclear, FTX's Chief Executive, Sam Bankman-Fried, said that both platforms will strengthen and reinforce the belief that "regulation in crypto and knowing your customer is an important part of the future of our industry." The funding comes a few weeks after Liquid suffered a $90 million loss. The Tokyo-based exchange said that the hacker attacked its multiparty computation (MPC) system of custody.
