The recent surge in claims by FTX creditors is unsustainable, according to Vladimir Jelisavcic, founder and manager of Cherokee Acquisition – a cryptocurrency bankruptcy brokerage.

In post dated December 20 on X (formerly Twitter), Jelisavcic stated “the price increase for FTX claims will slow down soon” because “this price increase cannot be sustained much longer”.

Sunil Kavuri, one of the bankrupt company’s most prominent creditors, said:

“The reorganization plan goes against FTX’s Terms of Service, which state ownership of digital assets belongs to the customer, not the exchange.”

Why have FTX claims increased so sharply?

Additionally, FTX’s significant investment in Solana’s SOL, a cryptocurrency that has grown an impressive 773% year-to-date to around $86, also played a role in amplifying the value. of compensation claims.
