According to a court filing submitted to U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, the collapsed FTX Trading LTD owes over $3 billion to its top 50 creditors.
As per the filing, FTX owes the top creditor $226 million and its fiftieth-largest creditor about $21 million.
The 10 largest creditors of FTX alone have unsecured claims totaling more than $100 million each and more than $1.45 billion overall.
