FTX's list of creditors finally released...

FTX’s list of creditors has just been published. The 115-page long document reveals numerous entities that FTX owes money to without specifying the amounts owed. From cryptocurrency exchanges, to tech giants to government entities, Sam Bankman-Fried has built a sprawling empire.

Companies and government entities involved

On January 25, attorneys for FTX filed the Matrix of Creditors with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The 115-page document lists the names of the company’s creditors in alphabetical order. However, the names of nearly 10 million individual customers are not included.

Among FTX’s creditors are Tech giants like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Meta, Twitter, Linkedin, Amazon and Netflix. Among the media are the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal as well as CoinDesk. The crypto companies mentioned in the document are Coinbase, Yuga Labs, Galaxy Digital, Bittrex, Sky Mavis, Circle, Bittrex, Chainalysis, Messari and entities of Binance. Government entities are also involved. This is the case for the tax offices of several US state agencies and the Internal Revenue Service.

FTX: A truly sprawling global network

FTX also owes money to small businesses like the Nassau-based pest control company as well as a garden center. The M Group, a former public relations firm of FTX is also a creditor. Companies listed in France such as Société Générale, Fieldfisher, Kresus and Webedia are also listed. However, it should be clarified that the list of creditors does not necessarily indicate that the entities had a trading account with FTX.

This substantial list of companies shows that Sam Bankman-Fried’s exchange empire was sprawling. Earlier documents filed in November already suggested that this crypto exchange could have over a million creditors. Some entities on the list revealed the company’s past overspending with other entities: Uber Eats, Doordash, Airbnb and several luxury hotels around the world.
