Despite the recent collapse and the exchange filing for bankruptcy protection, crypto traders are still paying more than a U.S. dollar for FTX’s FTT token on Friday, Nov. 18, 2022. FTT was once a top-30 crypto asset, and now the token has no rank on specific coin market aggregation sites due to locked FTT tokens entering circulation following the FTX bankruptcy filing.
Bankrupt Crypto Exchange FTX’s FTT Token Still Trades Above $1
While the FTX exchange collapse is a mess and the new FTX CEO said prior FTX leadership was a “complete failure of corporate controls,” and it was “a complete absence of trustworthy financial information,” the exchange token FTT is still trading for $1.48 per unit.
Despite the fact that FTX filed for bankruptcy, the coin is held by a few concentrated hands, and the FTT Contract Deployer unlocked 192 million previously locked tokens it has not joined the list of dead crypto coins trading for less than a U.S. penny.
At the time of writing, FTT’s 24-hour price range has been between $1.46 per unit to $1.62 per FTT. The coin lost approximately 93.9% during the last 14 days and because of the Contract Deployer incident, it is no longer ranked on coingecko.com.
On coinmarketcap.com, however, it ranks # 209 on Nov. 18, 2022, out of 21,790 listed crypto coins. After hitting its all-time price high on Sept. 9, 2021, FTT was ranked # 25 on coingecko.com and it had a $7.76 billion market valuation.

For instance, celsius token (CEL) is still holding value at $0.45 per unit despite the crypto lender Celsius collapsing. A number of folks discussing CEL on coinmarketcap.com’s (CMC) community posts are still “bullish” about CEL and still believe in it.
The same can be said for die-hard FTT token fans, as one CMC community post says: “FTT token will grow [in the] next days, we believe they will resolve problems and will be bigger.” The CMC community post saying FTT will grow was liked by more than 3,300 CMC community members.
