Frequently Asked Question

Claims Trading Overview

Bankruptcy Claim Trading primarily involves two parties: a Buyer and a Seller. As the Selling party, the Creditor is selling their uncollected receivable against a Debtor in a bankruptcy case. As the Buying party, a bankruptcy claims trading firm purchases the ownership and claim rights from the Creditor in the bankruptcy case.

Creditors involved in a bankruptcy case can be companies or individuals, typically Buyers or bankruptcy claim traders are professional investors such as hedge funds or regulated investment companies who have long term lock up capital and have the time, expertise and legal resources required for these lengthy processes.

Aside from the buyer and the seller, other parties may also be involved in the claims trading process, such as: Legal and Financial Advisers, Brokers, Bankruptcy Claims Agents, and the Bankruptcy Court. Legal and Financial Advisers for both parties may be asked to consult on the transaction, assist in the dealings with the Bankruptcy Court, assess the claim value, perform due diligence, conduct other bankruptcy claims services and ensure that all interests are aligned by reaching a contractual agreement.

Bankruptcy claims agent may be logistically involved as a contracted partner of the Debtor within a Bankruptcy Court case and act as the approved legal administrator for the Claims Registrar. Thus, claim transfers and court filings would flow through a bankruptcy claims agent’s administrative operations.

Although the Bankruptcy Court does not oversee the details of a claim trade, the claim transfer in ownership is officially recorded with the court, and the debtor in the case is notified. Any legal objections, dismissals, or modifications to payment terms on claims are ruled by and approved by the Bankruptcy Court.

Claims trading is both a legally and financially complex transaction. Therefore, the process can differ from trade to trade. It normally takes years before there is a distribution and the claims can change hands on multiple occasions during that time as trading can begin as soon as the bankruptcy petition is filed.

How is your claim value determined?

1. Your customer claim value is computed at the time at which FTX filed for bankruptcy (known as the petition date). For FTX International customers (, this was on November 11, 2022 at 10am EST. CryptoClaims.Pro aims to provide you with the exact dollar value using the debtor’s published (12/27/2023) pricing viewable here. The values given by CryptoClaims.Pro should be understood to be approximations of the final scheduled claim dollarized amounts.

2. All Comments on the case and Bankruptcy Law should not be interpreted as Legal or Financial Advice. Elements of Bankruptcy Law or of the case described herein are opinions of the CryptoClaims.Pro team and not of your lawyers. None of the opinions contained in this website are value judgments on fairness or on how the case “should” run. They are simply a description of facts based on our interpretation of documents on the FTX Docket and on our interpretation of the US Chapter 11.

3. The dollarized value will be adjusted by the amount of preference exposure your claim possesses. Only accounts with net-withdrawals exceeding $250,000 in value since November 2, 2022 will require adjustments to the claim value.

What is Preference risk and how is it calculated?

1. A preferential transfer is a payment or transfer of assets that a Debtor makes to a Creditor before declaring bankruptcy, under US bankruptcy law. This gives the Creditor more than they would have received through the normal bankruptcy process. The idea is that in the period leading up to bankruptcy, a Debtor should not be able to favour certain Creditors over others by paying them more than they would get under the bankruptcy proceedings.

2. In the case of FTX the Debtors and Ad Hoc committee of Unsecured Creditors have agreed to a 15% repayment of withdrawals over $250k. We calculate net withdrawals (using crypto prices at the time of deposits and withdrawals) from November 2, 2022 12AM EST until November 11, 2022 (the preference window). If this amount is less than $250,000, the preference exposure is $0. However, if the preference exposure exceeds $250,000, 15% x preference exposure will be deducted from the claim value. For example, if you have a $250,000 claim with $1,500,000 in net withdrawals in the preference window, your net claim value is $250,000 – 0.15*$1,500,000 = $25,000.

Convenience Class claim

Your Claim maybe categorised as a Convenience Class claim if your claim is less than $10,000. Effectively, you are likely to get a final one-off payment in 2024 and your claim will be considered settled, therefore, no further distributions will be made.

My claim is marked Contingent or distributed

1. Any claim that has “Locked” tokens has been marked as contingent. A large number of people had staked FTT to get SRM_Locked and all those accounts are marked as Contingent.

2. In the event your claim is marked as ‘Disputed’, the FTX Estate is challenging the validity of the claim. It’s not clear if that means that the claim will be completely invalidated.

Who are the Buyers?

The Buyers or bankruptcy claim traders are professional investors such as hedge funds or regulated investment companies who have long term lock up capital and have the time, expertise and legal resources required for these lengthy processes.

How long does it take to get Paid?

Depending on the complexity and jurisdiction of the Seller it is possible to sell your claim and get paid in less than 24 hours. For the larger more complex claims it can take up to five days.
