Let’s preface this article with this statement: the Binance and FTX topic is more fluid than Niagra Falls. The price changes discussed may be the same or wildly different depending on when you read this article. 

If you want some context, read this article from yesterday’s Litepaper, it highlights the CZ and SBF Twitter spat over the weekend that spilled over into Tuesday’s blood bath.

FTTUSD Daily Chart

Down more than -87% at one point, at the time of writing, barley holding onto a -72% loss. We haven’t seen something like this since Terra’s collapse.

Look out for tomorrow’s Litepaper as we tackle the insanity of this market! And stay safe out there!
