In a revelation that has sent shockwaves through the digital asset industry, recent court filings have unveiled the staggering extent of FTX's assets, standing at an impressive $7 billion. This includes a substantial $1.16 billion in Solana (SOL) and a portfolio boasting 38 prime real estate properties nestled in the idyllic Bahamas.

The demise of FTX, once a titan in the global financial arena, is now etched in infamy as one of the most significant scandals to rock the digital asset landscape. CEO Sam Bankman-Fried's alleged misappropriation of customer funds precipitated the downfall of this erstwhile powerhouse.

The repercussions continue to reverberate, with fresh revelations shedding light on the sheer magnitude of FTX's holdings. Alongside the aforementioned assets, the exchange retains a sizable $560 million in Bitcoin (BTC), underscoring the scale of its former dominance.

It's worth noting that the company had managed to secure an additional $1.5 billion in capital, complementing the $1.1 billion previously obtained in November. Yet, juxtaposed against this apparent wealth, a disconcerting detail emerges. A staggering $2.2 billion, spanning across cash, cryptocurrencies, and real estate, had been disbursed to former CEO Bankman-Fried and other high-ranking executives mere months prior to the company's plunge into bankruptcy. This fact may hold legal implications, with certain statutes potentially affording access to these funds.

The Bahamas, where FTX was headquartered, plays a pivotal role in this narrative. The company exerts control over an assortment of 38 condominiums, penthouses, and other prime properties, valued at an approximate $200 million. However, the plot thickens as the company now endeavours to reclaim a significant portion of these funds amidst the throes of ongoing bankruptcy proceedings. This latest filing signals a glimmer of hope on that front.
