CoinFLEX’s restructuring plan approval propels FLEX token higher

Embattled crypto exchange CoinFLEX said it received approval for a restructuring plan from the  Seychelles courts on March 6.

The exchange added that it was halting the trading of locked assets like LUSD and LETH until the Seychelles court published the court order.

CoinFLEX’s restructuring efforts

In August 2022, CoinFLEX filed for restructuring after it struggled to recover an $84 million debt from crypto investor Roger Ver. The debt plunged it into a liquidity crunch that culminated in the suspension of users’ withdrawals.

Since then, the exchange has made several efforts to make its customers whole. One of its plans included the issuance of a Recovery Value USD (rvUSD) token that would help its liquidity issues.

Besides that, the firm announced a significant change to its business model in October 2022. The firm issued most of its shares to customers and adopted a community-led model that gave users 65% equity in the company.

However, the company’s association with the founders of the defunct Three Arrows Capital (3AC), Su Zhu and Kyle Davies, has raised more questions about its operations.

The digital asset’s value has moved from around five cents to over $2 since it was revealed that it would be the utility token of the new bankruptcy claim exchange, OPNX — developed by CoinFLEX’s founders, Zhu, and Davies.

This means that FLEX has outperformed other notable digital assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum during the same period.

For context, FLEX has risen by more than 20% in the last 24 hours to $2.01 at the time of writing.

Meanwhile, despite the improved price performance, the FLEX token is currently only available on the struggling CoinFLEX exchange and two other decentralized exchanges, Uniswap and Tangoswap.
