Crypto Exchange Firm Announces New Funding Valued at $420 Million

Over the past few months, Bahamas-based crypto exchange firm FTX has been expanding its platform and recently announced that it has raised $420,690,000 in a Series B-1 funding round. About Sixty-nine investors were reported to have taken part in this recent funding, including firms like BlackRock,  Tiger Global, Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan Board, Singapore’s Temasek,  and Sequoia.

According to reports,  investors valued the company at $25 billion, up roughly 39% from the Series B sticker price set in July when it collected $900 million in crypto’s largest-ever venture capital round. As part of the huge growth witnessed in the exchange firm, users have increased by 48 percent, while trade volume has increased by 75 percent.

The fresh round of funding comes just one day after bitcoin reached a new high of more than $66,000. Investors are ecstatic about the debut of the first U.S. exchange-traded fund that tracks bitcoin futures, a significant step that brings crypto closer to Wall Street.

More Plans to Spread

This year, FTX has been out to spread the adoption of cryptocurrency in various industries and has spent a lot of money on sports advertising, with a partnership with  Major League Baseball announced a few weeks ago. Getting some of the big players in the sporting scene is one of the strategies it has adopted to advance its frontiers.

With a plethora of venture funding and multimillion-dollar-per-day revenue streams, the CEO, Bankman-Fried,

Is contemplating a series of acquisitions and collaborations to expand FTX into other nations and reach a larger audience.

In an interview,  FTX’s CEO noted that the firm had done over half a billion worth of acquisitions, adding that some of the firms are quite sizable.  The financial muscles being flexed by FTX shows how much it is growing in the crypto space every day and is wielding much power.

FTX is now a Giant in the Crypto Space 

FTX, previously exclusively an international crypto derivatives exchange, now has a US subsidiary with its own NFT marketplace and plans to sell regulated futures products.

Last week, FTX demonstrated its dominance in the cryptosphere by banning NFTs projects with revenue-sharing systems from listing on its exchange. To comply, a number of projects, like Solarians, rapidly dropped that function, enraging a large number of buyers.

FTX competes with Coinbase, Binance, and Kraken as one of the world’s largest digital currency exchanges. It specializes in derivatives and leveraged trading, which involves using borrowed cash to increase the size of a trade.

In an interview, FTX CEO noted that the firm was set up to create a better financial market but has since evolved and grown to include newer ambitions. He said, “We founded FTX two years ago with the idea of creating a better financial marketplace.

Today we are focused on establishing FTX as a trustworthy and innovative exchange by regularly engaging with regulators around the world, and constantly seeking opportunities to enhance our offerings for digital asset investors.”


FTX is Adding Silver Stocks Because of A Reddit-Led Market Surge

FTX, which is a popular cryptocurrency exchange, is listing tokenized silver stocks and futures. This was in response to the rising demand for the physical asset. 

A news publication on cryptobriefing said that Sam Bankman-Fried’s cryptocurrency exchange added silver to its growing traditional assets list. This is because of a market surge due to a group of Reddit users.

If you thought the GME drama was over, you are wrong.

Silver found itself reaching a new high in almost 7 years and is up 20% since Thursday. With the rise in demand, the precious metal is running scarce among several established dealers.

Yahs Sojourners is a crypto analyst who had this to tweet on FTX adding silver stocks in a Reddit market that witnessed a surge.

Reddit seems to be an action-packed social media platform for a majority of users to hit back at the market. Last month saw GME, and now it is silver. FTX has no other option but to list more stocks.

The Sam Bankman-Fried cryptocurrency exchange added the stocks over the weekend. Just last week, FTX listed GME stocks for traders to speculate. Its investors were able to push the GME to $490 pre-market on Thursday.

Last week was undoubtedly one of the most unforgettable ones in the history of the trade market. 

Why is the market turning to silver? 

The weekend saw some activity on Reddit with their users on the subreddit r/wallstreetsilver.

Many were on active threads titled “Silver $25 to $1000 #silversqueeze.” 

Surprisingly, investors are delved into silver as these threads argue that larger-scale institutions are immensely controlling precious metal’s prices. The original post read that large financial institutions are manipulating the price of metals. 

You would be glad to know that silver is around $30 per ounce today. This makes it the highest it has ever been since 2013. That is almost after a gap of 7 years. Since Thursday last week, the precious metal was up 20%. 

Silver dealers have woken up with the new development. Like SD Bullion, JM Bullion, and Apmex, a few of them are actively trading the physical asset and reported shortages. The dealers have expressed their inability to provide the silver products on time due to the unexpected demand. 

One thing is sure, the movement of the market is going to be critical this week, as if the last month of the new year, 2021, had no action. 

Melvin Capital Has Announced it is Closing Short, Tokenized GME Sinks on FTX

Melvin Capital has announced that it is closing its GME position. This has had a drastic effect on the stocks as they have sunk more than 40% on FTX in the latest twist to the GameStop saga.

A news post on cryptobriefing claimed that today morning, Melvin Capital announced they are going to close its position on GME. The FTX has listed tokenized stocks and futures for GameStop because of the announcement of the asset’s sudden rise in the stock market.

As a result of Melvin Capital’s announcement, the tokenized GME stocks have plunged more than 40%. The GME closed at $148 last night. That was thanks to a short squeeze generated due to few generous Reddit users.

John Morgan is a market analyst and trader in the bitcoin market, had this to tweet on Melvin Capital Closes Short, Tokenized GME Plummets on FTX.

As soon as the news reached traders, the tokenized GameStop Stocks (GME) started to sink quicker than the Titanic on FTX. FTX is one of the most popular exchanges that is facilitating trading on the tokenized stocks and futures. 

Unfortunately, what was supposed to be a good week for GameStop turned out to be the worst for it. The tokenized stocks on FTX sunk from $350 to $180. However, they have managed to remain stable at $212, which resulted in a 35% retrace.

The futures are also down from reaching $350 to $200 with a massive 40% drop. The news was broken on CNBC. Earlier this week, they accounted that Melvin Capital would receive a bailout amounting to $2.75 billion from Citadel and Point72.

Early this year, their stock was hitting more than 50% with the news of Chewy founder Ryan Cohen’s appointment. Due to the decrease in price, Melvin Capital had to take short positions on GME. 

A group of Reddit users, part of the subreddit /r/wallstreetbets, came together to pool in a short squeeze. This led to a small increase in GME. It is to be noted that two billionaires, Elon Musk and Chamath Palihapitiya, helped raged the flames on Twitter. 

Mike Novogratz, who is Galaxy Digital founder, said on Twitter that the short squeeze was “a colossal endorsement of DeFi.” One can only wait and hope for the remaining drama to unfold once the New York Stock Exchange opens at 09:30 Eastern Time.
