According to on-chain data provider Nansen, the indebted FTX has finally reopened withdrawals for its clients. According to the data, one user was able to withdraw $2.6 million worth of ETH, while another was able to withdraw $1.3 million worth of USDC from the exchange.
Strangely, the data also shows that a user deposited $21,000 on the exchange to try to arbitrage odd prices on FTX and withdraw to some other niche asset.

FTX stopped withdrawals earlier this week due to liquidity issues with its sister company Alameda Research. Rival exchange Binance stepped in and signed a non-binding letter of intent to buy FTX only to pull out of the transaction 24 hours later.
FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried said in a tweet on Thursday:
“We spent the week doing everything possible to increase liquidity”
