were they? Where does anyone say that? Alameda Research is a separate business owned by SBF taking loans against FTT, which again can just be printed into oblivion by FTX, FTT isn't backed by anything, it doesn't matter if FTX's FTT "loans" turn into bad debt.

>> No.52298739

They were using their own shitcoin as collateral to take out loans. When FTT drops, they get margin called.

The only way to raise funds were to sell more FTT (leading to even lower prices) or sell other holdings (tanking the market). They did a bit of both. Many giants get wrecked this way.

The FTT was being used as collateral. When the price of FTT falls,it makes loans undercollateralized. This makes Alameda get margin called, they lose the assets they borrowed for, and now FTT is unable to get required assets to return deposits to users.

1 FTT = 1 FTT even if they have to cause hyperinflation through minting. It sounds like 50% of FTT was at Alameda Research, so a 50% drop in value.

FTT is worthless and infinitely printable from the perspective of FTX. If FTX loses their loan of FTT to Alameda they realize a loss of $0. It is literally impossible for FTX to not be able to back FTT 1:1. The implication of being insolvent means it was assets other than FTT.

they "lent" FTT to Alameda, but the loan was actually real money of users with the value of FTT
so if the FTT becomes worth less relative to the real money, a hole emerges. probably some margin too

Now I give those 10 REAL dollars to someone else (alameda for example) and tell them they can pay me back in fake dollars
alameda prints 10 fake dollars and gives them back but they promise me at one point they will swap them for real dollars
alameda does things with the REAL dollars, maybe lose them or lock them or whatever for "gains"
meanwhile, the FAKE dollars become worth less because people don't trust that they are backed by REAL dollars or nobody wants them
you want your 10 dollars back
i can't swap my 10 FAKE dollars for REAL dollars

Yes, FTT would hyperinflate. FTT holders would lose value, and whoever was retarded enough to lend Alameda Research actual assets against their FTT. All assets would be covered 1:1, no fractional reserve, no liquidity crunch. Alameda Research and their FTT does not explain this situation.

Alameda isn't trading with real dollars from FTX, those assets came from retards who thought it was a good idea to to lend Alameda assets based off their FTT (worthless when taken into context). That has nothing to do with FTX, we don't even know what exchange Alameda was trading on if any (possibly OTC only, who knows).

>> No.52299320

That is an extremely long and overly complicated way to explain a loan. But you haven't proved at all FTX used user funds instead of FTX's own funds to lend to Alameda.

>> No.52299330

so you agree Alameda is giving FTT in exchange for REAL ASSETS
meaning at someone point Alameda gets REAL DOLLARS and the counterparty (be it retards or FTX) get FAKE DOLLARS

if the real dollars are gone, WHOEVER is left holding the FAKE DOLLARS bag and that's what happened. you are basically answering your own question

at some point real assets were pulled from FTX, fake assets (FTT) were given back and when people wanted their real assets back, FTX couldn't pay them

>> No.52299379

>so you agree Alameda is giving FTT in exchange for REAL ASSETS
FTT collateralized a loan of REAL ASSETS using FAKE ASSETS (FTT)
>if the real dollars are gone, WHOEVER is left holding the FAKE DOLLARS bag and that's what happened.
Yes the bag holder in this case would be whoever decided FTT was real collateral, not FTX
>at some point real assets were pulled from FTX
Wrong, FTX never gave Alameda real assets and we don't even know if Alameda traded on FTX which itself is irrelevant.
>fake assets (FTT) were given back and when people wanted their real assets back
Yes, whoever lent Alameda real assets would get the FTT which has now massively deprecated in value lmao
>FTX couldn't pay them
FTX has nothing to do with this other than they lost a bunch of worthless fake assets that they can just replace arbitrarily if they had to. That doesn't make them insolvent or cause a "liquidity crunch".

>> No.52299381

yes, but the collateral of the loan was fake dollars

what is there left to prove lol? FTX is insolvent so at some point the real dollars were taken from the books and swapped for fake dollars. when the fake dollars crash AND people want their real dollars back, you are instantly insolvent and that's what happened

read alameda's own fucking shit you mongrel. they're market makers providing liquidity with a daily volume of over 5 billion dollars.

They have made thousands of bitcoins on bitmex in the earlier days, and now they operate wherever people buy their market making service.

>> No.52299442

did you check the leaked balance sheet? FTX had FTT on their sheet pretending it was real money
the whole thing is that FTT was their own illiquid fake dollars, the real dollars weren't even there
so at some point they sent the real assets away (wherever, alameda or whoever got them), replaced them with fake dollars and said they have the same value

whoever has the real assets will obviously not give them back to FTX... either because they lost them or they have been siphoned away (in a bad trade or whatever). the whole reason they are insolvent

>> No.52299493

>They aren't considered to be property of FTX
yeah you are just trolling at this point

Alameda lost the real assets, on the market, like anyone else. Where does it say FTX gave real assets to anyone outside the normal course of trading. Where does it say they used non-FTT customer assets. Now you're just making stuff up.

Where did Alameda get the real assets? Not FTX. Where did the real assets go? To the counter party on the exchange. What's the result of this? Alameda's collateral is seized, specifically fake assets (FTT). What did FTX lose? Fake assets (FTT).

In the short term, no. they could simply be overwhelmed with volume - especially if there is a ton of fiat requests and they have to make transfers that can take days.

Celsius terms says deposits were a loan. The entire point of Celsius was that they traded and invested your funds like a hedge fund, and paid you yield. For normal exchanges, like FTX, deposited crypto remains property of the user so it is very different.

>> No.52302278


Then please tell me why Celsius custody users (ie. who just held crypto on the platform and didn't have it in an earn account) are fighting for their funds back during Chapter 11 the same as every other unsecured creditor.

The ToS mean jack shit if the exchange mixed and used custodial funds in ways that they shouldn't and the funds no longer exist. But unlike Celsius, it's looking like FTX will get bailed out by Binance and fortunately customers will get to avoid the bankruptcy process.

Because all deposits were loans.

>> No.52302476


Wrong. The ToS stipulated that for Earn accounts you handed over ownership of funds to Celsius for them to loan out or do whatever with. But for Custody accounts, according to the ToS, users retained ownership of funds. Yet, somehow, they're still fighting to get their money back along with Earn users. There's a good chance custody won't get back anywhere close to 100% of their money either, because it literally doesn't exist anymore. It's almost as if a crypto business can say whatever the want in their ToS, but then do the opposite behind closed doors. Hmm, big think.

>Yet, somehow, they're still fighting to get their money back

>> No.52302589

It doesn't exist or that custody account had money withdrawn from earn accounts and so then subject to the bankruptcy? In the end even if you withdrew money from celsius to your own private wallet, you can be court ordered to return the funds. The lesson of celsius is don't use fucking cefi. Those problems don't apply to simple crypto exchanges.

Every single thing about crypto and a lot of financial stuff is nothing but obfuscation, you obfuscate it and pointlessly complicate it so much that it starts to seem like there's something to it.

>> No.52302669


And FTX is not a simple exchange, it offered CeFi products as well like loaning/earn. Meaning it's just as possible for user custody and earn user funds to have gotten mixed like they did on Celsius. I mean clearly FTX doesn't have the funds to support all user withdrawals, otherwise they wouldn't be getting bailed out by CZ. The proof is in the pudding anon, I don't get how you're still trying to argue otherwise. You were posting the same thing in an FTX thread a couple days ago before SBF admitted insolvency.

Who the fuck knows what happened to FTX. Anyway,

I am launching a CPU/GPU mineable (ASIC resistant) Bitcoin fork. We're thinking that a lot of former ETH miners will come to our network to collect block rewards with their GPUs over time.

We're launching in two weeks, so you still have time to learn more about the project.

An exchange shouldn't even be making any investments at all. baka. They are supposed to be just an exchange. If they're making investments, with leverage, they are nothing more than a public crypto funded hedge fund with an exchange on the side.

>> No.52302750

And? If you didn't lend, that doesn't apply to you. Not being able to satisfy massive withdraws in 24 hours doesn't really mean they don't have the funds. I honestly don't know why I argue with retards on 4chan endlessly. I have a lot of free time from crypto.

Anon, the CEO of FTX literally announced on twitter than FTX.com does not have the funds to support withdrawals, that's why Binance is bailing them out.

He said FTX.us does have funds 1:1, though, and never halted and is still supporting user withdrawals. Probably because they were under heavier regulatory scrutiny and maybe didn't offer loan/earn products in the US, I'm not sure, honestly I never used and wasn't super familiar with the platform before this whole shitshow.

We will probably never know the real reason but it's a pretty good bet that SBF pissed off the wrong people and got dealt with. I wouldn't doubt that he had something to do with the Luna crash, for example. CZ got fucked pretty hard on that deal too.

>> No.52302844

Nope. He said he didn't have the liquidity, whatever that means, but said repeatedly now and the in the past its 1:1. All exchanges should be 1:1.

interesting. in that case this looks like a deliberate move on FTX by people who knew that they were insolvent after that earlier 3ac debacle. by whom tho?

Like talking to a brick wall man. FTX will probably be fine in a week because Binance is providing them with liquidity. Without CZ's money, they would have been fucked. If you have funds on FTX.com, just thank your lucky stars that Binance is bailing them out and you don't have to deal with the bankruptcy shitshow like us Celsius bagholders.

That is exactly the problem OP.

the not-needed, not-real semitic token was used as a collateral for a bunch of loans, on-chain and off-chain. Now that it went to zero, someone's got problems with their balance sheets (oopsie)

>> No.52306048

The loan to alameda does not explain why FTX lost real money, you got that part right.

What the loan to alameda *does* explain, is how people lost trust in the value of FTT. Because they realized it was printed by FTX for collateral for desperate loans to alameda (by whoever, irrelevant).

How this comes back to FTX is that they *also* used FTT on their balance sheet as an asset. Now if FTT drops, their assets drop and liabilities become relatively bigger. To the point they go from net positive to net negative. Essentially you could say FTX also used FTT as collateral. Directly or indirectly, doesn't matter.
