Following FTX’s bankruptcy filing in November 2022, FTX Japan ceased its operations and froze the accounts of approximately 9 million customers, with billions of dollars subject to legal proceedings. FTX Japan has advised customers with assets in their accounts to confirm their account balance and transfer them to their Liquid Japan account.
