FTX Revenue and Usage Statistics (2024)

Updated: January 8, 2024

FTX was one of the newer cryptocurrency platforms which have become wildly popular in 2021, with some pegging it as a key competitor to Coinbase in the retail investor market.

Sam Bankman-Fried and Gary Wang launched FTX in May 2019, two years after Bankman-Fried founded Alameda Research, a quantitative trading firm which specialises in cryptocurrency.

It offered derivatives, options, tokenised stocks, leveraged tokens and an NFT marketplace. It has also launched its own utility token, FTT, which has seen its market value increase by over 850% since the start of the year.

FTX acquired Blockfolio for $150 million in August 2020, providing it with access to one of the largest cryptocurrency services for retail investors. It is through this app that FTX has acquired most of its mobile users.

It also boosted its profile through sports partnerships, such as a 19-year $135 million naming rights deal with the Miami Heat, a 10-year naming rights deal with e-sports franchise TeamSoloMid.

FTX grew considerably in valuation over the past two years, becoming one of the quickest companies to reach decacorn stage (+$10 billion valuation). It was valued at $18 billion in a funding round which included SoftBank, Coinbase and Sequoia Capital.

On November 2022, CoinDesk reported that Bankman-Fried had been using FTX’s altcoin, the FTT token, as an asset for his trading firm Alameda Research. After the report was published, Binance founder Changpeng Zhao announced it was selling all of its holdings in FTT, which led to the coin losing over 85 percent of its value.

This led to the collapse of FTX, which needed $8 billion in funding to avoid bankruptcy. Binance announced it would acquire FTX, but then pulled back on its agreement after viewing FTX’s internal documents.
