Covalent’s relationship with Alameda Research and FXT
The fall of FTX exposed the exchange’s relationship with Alameda Research, which had participated in the private sale with Covalent.
The interaction with Alameda Research necessitated Covalent to clarify its relationship with FTX, which was going insolvent. In a statement released by Covalent, the network denied any ties with FTX, FTT, and Alameda Research.
The startup indicated that Alameda Research was one of the market makers in June 2021, whose relationship lasted until June 2022. All the CQT related to marketing were returned, and terminated the connection. The company further indicated that there was no other business with Alameda Research or FTX.
