FTX publishes list of creditors and owes billions of dollars to known institutions and government agencies

The full list, which is over 100 pages long, shows that FTX owes a lot of money to well-known institutions, including Binance, Airbnb, Apple, Amazon, Linkedin, Coindesk, the Wall Street Journal, and more. U.S. government entities, such as the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), are also included.

FTX’s list of creditors reveals a wide range of companies that are owed money.

On January 24, 2023, FTX released the bankrupt company’s creditor ledger, which contains over 100 pages of names. The list of creditors includes government agencies from Switzerland, Hong Kong, the United States and Japan. In addition, the ledger contains a myriad of well-known companies, including Alibaba, Allied Sports, Microsoft, Amazon, Meta, Twitter, Google, Blue Bottle Coffee, Bonham Capital, Bitstamp, Bitgo, Infura, Inca Digital, Lightspeed Strategic Partners, Long Watch Security, Mercedes-Benz, Messari, Nomura and O’Leary Productions. Bankruptcy documents filed last year indicate that FTX’s top 50 creditors owe an estimated $3 billion.

The list of FTX creditors includes U.S. government agencies, such as the IRS, FinCEN, and various tax collectors from a number of different states. The list features three major airlines, hotels, apartments, nonprofit organizations, and software companies that provide cloud services. However, approximately 9.69 million FTX customer names are redacted from the creditor registry. The list also highlights a large number of companies from the Bahamas, where FTX’s inner circle operated. Creditors also include banks, Stanford University, Fox News, Coindesk and the Wall Street Journal.

The court filing shows money owed to a large number of creditors, but that does not mean the entity or individual used the FTX exchange to trade crypto. For example, a spokesperson for Swiss regulatory entity FINMA told Reuters that it did not understand why it was listed. FINMA “was not a client of FTX and had not acted on its platforms“, the spokesperson told the news outlet. Reuters reporter Noele Illien also reached out to Airbnb for comment, but the company did not respond.
