OKX has announced that it will transfer $157 million in frozen assets to FTX and Alameda-related entities, which is in response to a motion filed today in the FTX bankruptcy proceedings. According to reports, the frozen assets include cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and different altcoins but OKX didn’t mention any tokens themselves. These funds had been frozen for a while, following the discrepancies in FTX.

OKX acted swiftly to freeze accounts and secure assets linked to FTX and Alameda Research after discovering them during the course of these inquiries.OKX responded by denying any misconduct and filing a countersuit against FTX and Alameda.
