FTX's bankruptcy involves two concurrent processes: Chapter 11 in a Delaware court and the official liquidation of its subsidiary, FTX Digital, in the Bahamas, due to accounting complexities. Both entities will collaborate to ensure creditors can submit claims to either, ensuring fair compensation.

Additionally, the notes from the meeting of March 15 also state that both the Chapter 11 Debtors and the Joint Official Liquidators aim to distribute the first interim payment to creditors with acknowledged claims and adequate KYC documentation by 2024 end.

Last month, the FTX bankruptcy estate arranged to sell most of its stake in AI startup Anthropic for $884 million, in a bid to compensate those affected by the exchange's collapse. The estate also announced selling 41 million locked Solana (SOL) tokens for $7.5 billion. Neptune Digital was the first firm to publicly state it has bought 26,964 SOL at $64 per token.

Recently, SBF was sentenced to 25 years in prison by the U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan for deceiving customers and investors of CTX. He was also ordered to undergo three years of supervised release and to surrender over $11 billion in unlawfully acquired assets.
