This development follows news that a person who allegedly hacked FTX earlier on Sunday converted more than $300 million in Ethereum to Bitcoin after holding it for a while.
The identity of the person who dumped the FTX is unknown. While many say a hacker was able to drain funds from the embattled exchange that has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, others think the dubious outflow may be an insider attempt.
Ray, a lawyer who also managed the bankruptcy of energy giant Enron, was called in to lead the restructuring of FTX. The exchange filed for bankruptcy on November 11.
“I have never seen in my career as much as here a complete failure in corporate controls and a complete lack of reliable financial information,” Ray said.
