TORONTO, Nov. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Liquid Meta Capital Holdings Ltd. (“Liquid Meta” or the “Company“) (NEO: LIQD) (FRANKFURT: N5F) (OTCQB: LIQQF) a decentralized finance infrastructure and technology company focused on bridging the gap between traditional and decentralized finance would like to provide a market update regarding recent crypto related market activity.
Liquid Meta remains well capitalized. While it is too early to tell how much the Company’s deposits may ultimately be returned from FTX, we will pursue all remedies vigorously to recover funds from FTX as part of its Chapter 11 process. The Company’s shares continue to trade at a significant discount to its asset value. The Company has substantial runway and no liabilities. Beyond FTX, the Company’s assets currently have no exposure to any centralized exchanges. Presently, assets are held in mostly large, liquid stable coins and fiat and will remain there until the market concerns abate.
The collapse and subsequent Chapter 11 filing of the FTX Group (“FTX”) has been widely publicized. FTX’s collapse has resulted in potentially $10 billion or more in liabilities1 with a significant portion of that being user deposits. The FTX situation has caused harm to its customers and the industry more broadly and we expect to see a variety of implications in the near-to-medium term from regulatory changes to consumer adoption. However, while more details and reporting will emerge around FTX in the coming days and weeks, we want to take the opportunity to comment on the broader silver lining from the fallout.
It is important to note that FTX’s failure is representative of a centralized, opaque, and ultimately untrustworthy intermediary. This is a well known pattern of events from the traditional financial world. Decentralized technology vastly decreases the need to rely on trust and intermediaries. Liquid Meta was formed to build and participate in the next generation of financial infrastructure, which are open-access and transparent protocols and applications. Defi protocols have functioned without fail during the crypto credit crisis in the summer and today. On-chain loans continue to get prioritized by borrowers for repayment in times of crisis. They remain a bright example of technology solving a major problem in financial markets.
Decentralized exchanges, lending, and trading protocols such as GMX, DYDX, Perpetual Protocol, Aave, Sushi Swap, Uniswap, and many others continue to function and many have seen substantial increases in usage since FTX fell. The FTX collapse is not a failure of crypto or blockchain technology, it is the failure of a centralized entity and bolsters the case for a more open and transparent financial system and the need for regulatory clarity in certain jurisdictions to streamline and mitigate risk in the industry.
We remain strongly capitalized and committed to create shareholder value in the best way possible going forward.
