FTX seeks court approval to sell $744 million of Grayscale and Bitwise trust assets

FTX and its debtors have asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to approve the sale of some of the trust’s assets, namely Grayscale and Bitwise fund shares, through an investment adviser, with a total estimated value of $744 million, according to court documents.

FTX “trust assets” involve five Grayscale trusts totaling approximately $691 million, based on market prices on October 25, and one trust managed by Bitwise worth $53 million.
According to court documents, the move is intended to prepare creditors for upcoming monetization distributions and allow FTX to quickly sell these trust assets when appropriate. Additionally, all stakeholders will be represented through the establishment of a pricing committee, mitigating the costs and delays associated with selling each asset individually.
The filing states that the Debtors believe that aggressively reducing the risk of price fluctuations will best protect the value of the trust assets, thereby maximizing returns to creditors and promoting the equitable distribution of funds in the Debtors reorganization plan.
