Crypto & Blockchain Bankruptcy
On top of seeing hundreds of billions of dollars in lost market value, the crypto industry is watching industry players seek bankruptcy protection in the US and abroad, with the recent FTX bankruptcy headlining a string of high-profile cross-border crypto restructurings in 2022. The fallout from these bankruptcies and the crypto “ice age” will likely reshape the industry and spur a new wave of legal disputes and regulatory scrutiny.
