The crypto company affirmed that no members of the BlockFi management team had withdrawn any digital assets from the platform since October. The platform maintained that payment made to other parties prior to the bankruptcy filing will be disclosed.

Increasing Leagues of Bankrupt Companies
There is no gainsaying that BlockFi is neither the first nor will it be the last company to go bankrupt amid the bear market crisis. A similar crypto lender Celsius Network filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July, 022, due to financial insolvency.
However, the catastrophe that befell FTX exchange has not been helpful to the crypto market as the contagion has affected many crypto firms.
For instance, BlockFi’s financial insolvency was reportedly triggered by the FTX collapse, which prompted the crypto lender platform to sue Sam Bankman-Fried’s company FTX.
In the same vein, Genesis Global Capital was not spared from the contagion. Although it quickly embarked on a restructuring plan in order to avert filing for bankruptcy.
