The FTX CEO said:

Voyager’s customers did not choose to be bankruptcy investors holding unsecured claims. The goal of our joint proposal is to help establish a better way to resolve an insolvent crypto business – a way that allows customers to obtain early liquidity and reclaim a portion of their assets without forcing them to speculate on bankruptcy outcomes and take one-sided risks.

“If you care about improving the world with this tech, please avoid this impetus,” Voorhees added. You’ve already built an impressive crypto empire [Sam Bankman-Fried]. Please use it for good, and not to entangle us back into the legacy system that is so deeply corrupted and perverse.”
