Crypto Market Falls As BTC Down By 5.06% And ETH Falls By 6.1%


The crypto market is crashing on the back of the news that the FTT Token might crash, which will take down the platform, as most of FTX’s assets are tied to the FTT Token.

It all started when a balance sheet of Alameda research, a company owned by Sam Bankman who is the majority shareholder of FTX, surfaced online. It showed that the FTX’s platforms assets are tied to the FTT token.

Few days earlier, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao said that they will be strategically diluting their 23 million FTT tokens. Zhao wants to dump the FTT tokens, as it would otherwise take months to sell the shares strategically to minimize the market impact.

Zhao’s Tweet has led to panic selling now.

“Liquidating our FTT is just post-exit risk management, learning from LUNA. We gave support before, but we won’t pretend to make love after divorce. We are not against anyone. But we won’t support people who lobby against other industry players behind their backs. Onwards.” Changpeng said in a Tweet .

Cryptocurrency prices were trading in the red on Tuesday evening. Ethereum (ETH) fell along with other altcoins. Dogecoin , a meme coin, which was the best performing currency for the past few days, fell 12.6 per cent.

Today’s most trending crypto was FTT Token, which is native token of FTX Platform.
