Troubled crypto exchange FTX has reached an agreement with Tron to enable withdrawals for holders of TRX, BTT, JST, SUN, and HT, the company said via Twitter on 10 November.
According to the announcement, the deal provides a credit that will allow holders of these tokens to swap assets from FTX 1:1 to external wallets starting 18:30 UTC today. The Tron team initially deployed $13 million worth of assets to facilitate such swaps, but revealed that it will provide additional funding on a weekly basis. FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried (SBF) tweeted:
While exact figures for future capital injections were not given, they will be determined on a weekly basis by the team — based on the a number of factors, such as withdrawal demand — and deployed at 14:00 UTC. As part of the deal, FTX has disabled Tron deposits from all users. FTX wrote in its announcement:
“By providing a set schedule of the amount of tokens to be introduced into the market and the corresponding time, our goal is to provide more clarity to the market allowing users to make better informed decisions.”
