FTX is one of the biggest cryptocurrencies exchange on the market and has over one million users. An average traded volume daily is in billions of dollars. The company was founded in 2019 and has headquarters in the Bahamas. In August 2020, FTX acquired Blockfolio, a cryptocurrency portfolio tracking app, for $150 million.

In July 2021, FTX raised $900 million at an $18 billion valuation from over 60 investors, including Softbank, Sequoia Capital, Third Point Management, Paul Tudor Jones, and Alan Howard. Binance, a competitor which invested in the company in 2020, divested its share in 2021. In April 2021, FTX acquired the naming rights to the Miami Heat’s basketball stadium in a 19-year, $135 million deal, fully renaming it FTX Arena in June 2021.

FTX users can buy and sell cryptocurrencies, trade cryptocurrencies with leverage, and also long or short positions through future contracts. A New feature is stock tokens, the value of which is covered by real shares.
The exchange supports classic fiat currencies, so it is easy to deposit dollars or euros. You can also withdraw fiat, but keep in mind, first of all, you have to pass through KYC verification.
