I don't keep funds in exchanges for more than an hour... but I know a lot of people with funds there, I don't know why people keep funds in centralized services when the whole idea of blockchain is not trusting third parties
same here....why people use this service for storing coin i do not understand ?

I lost 7.5k in USDT on FTX. Was stupid enough not to transfer it to the wallet. Quite an expensive lesson for me.
I heard that Tether has blocked FTX USDT with restraining order so I decided to approach them to find out more about it. That is what they answered.

Thank you for reaching out to us.

We are sorry to hear about the situation. However there is nothing we can do from our end to assist you with this as the funds are held at a third party exchange.

Kindly notice that Tether tokens are managed by open-source software. The software can be downloaded and used by any client to generate addresses and use those addresses for Tether token transfers without any involvement from Tether. This is similar to how other tokens such as Bitcoin function. We do not issue all the addresses in use and are not in control of them nor of every transaction made on-chain. We also do not have identifying information about the persons who use addresses which we do not control.

We advice you to reach out to the platform directly and discuss the best course of action.

No, never used that one. Did not have any value proposition to begin with and older exchanges did everything I need just fine. So why change and go with some fast (and somewhat unclear/unproven) riser for a meager value prop?

However, I got a (minor) hit with UST / luna earlier this year, they were also a fast and equally weird riser as sbf/ftx. But they had a too attractive value prop with 20% interest of a stable coin to just sit by idle. ;)

I used it simply to accept payments for my services in crypto (that is often required by my clients) and than to convert it in real money. Would never in my life invest in this s***t. Maybe if was more crypto "savvy" I would avoid such stupidity as losing 7.5k.

In any case the guy should face the trial and I am sure he would end up in the US jail for 40 years or so. You cannot simply take other people money and play with it, especially if you are a lame idiot and you know about it.

This is common in this space. In the olden days it was common to see exchanges come and go and all on there gone.
there were well established players like Coinbase and Kraken, having clear and sounder foundations. FTX was not established being from 2019 (up only time).

If "crypto" is required by your clients, it takes only about 20hours to learn about accepting Bitcoin, lightning and maybe tether on own wallet and how to store its private key safely.

The Criminal Code says that there are much more ways to get money from the people illegally that just put a gun to someone's head.

Yeah, it seems to me that nothing at all should have happened to the FTX itself if it was not drained by the owner. And this fact means that the guy has committed fraudulent actions.

I have lost a significant part of my net worth. About 20% / 2 years of income.
Because you cannot withdraw Futures, nor Move contracts.

This. Some people don't understand that FTX offered not only spot trading, but more exotic products like perps and tokenized stocks. The cross-collateral mechanism was awesome and allowed some arbitrages that werent possible in other exchanges.

none, I dont keep anything on exchanges. I also don't stake my crypto because picking pennies in front of a train isn't appealing.
Yeah, I don't understand why people risk their entire stack to pick up low single-digit % returns.

Sure the APY starts high when they first launch, but soon enough, it drops to virtually nothing, so you'd need to be insane to keep high amounts staked.
