FTX-linked wallets have continued to send their stash of altcoins to crypto exchanges over the past month after a court-ordered phased-out liquidation process. The court order permits FTX to sell digital assets worth over $3 billion through an investment adviser in weekly batches in accordance with the pre-established rule.

The phased-out liquidation process would allow FTX to sell $50 million worth of assets weekly, followed by a $100 million cap in the succeeding weeks. The cap can be increased up to $200 million per week with the previous written consent of the creditors’ committee and ad hoc committee after court approval.
