- Ren joined Alameda Research to push interoperability within DeFi in Feb 2022.
- FTX & Alameda Research experienced one of the biggest collapses in crypto history in 2022.
- Ren Protocol transfers all assets to FTX debtors’ wallet to safeguard against potential shutdown.
Cross-chain bridge platform Ren Protocol has recently made an announcement that FTX, Alameda Research and other affiliates have authorized and directed the platform to move all its crypto assets to FTX debtors’ wallets.
This move was made to safeguard debtors’ assets in case of potential shutdown of their systems and infrastructure. By transferring the assets to a segregated wallet specific to Ren’s assets, the platform separates the funds from other debtor wallets.
Ren Protocol joined Alameda Research on Feb. 2, 2022, in a move to gather more resources and further its mission to push interoperability within the decentralized finance (DeFi) space. According to its CEO, Taiyang Zhang, the Alameda acquisition will expedite the decentralization of its technologies. Zhang also highlighted in a blog post that it would have Alameda’s resources to back them. The acquisition was seen as a positive move for the platform, as it garnered much-needed support to achieve its goals.
However, things did not go as planned, as FTX and its sister company Alameda Research experienced one of the biggest collapses in crypto history in 2022. The collapse saw the platform struggle to recover and maintain its standing as one of the leading crypto platforms in the industry.
At the height of the troubles surrounding Alameda back in December, Ren Protocol advised its users to unwrap their tokens in the Ren 1.0 network and bring them back to the main chains. This was due to the shutdown of the network following the events that surrounded Alameda Research.
The recent announcement that Ren’s assets will be transferred has elicited various sentiments from members of the community. Some expressed their disappointment, with one Twitter user commenting that Ren is “getting rugged” legally, while others remain in disbelief of what is happening. At the same time, some members of the community think that this is a move from insiders to short the REN token.
Ren Protocol remains committed to pushing for interoperability within the DeFi space. The platform is constantly looking for new ways to improve its technology and to achieve its goals. The transfer of its assets to FTX debtors’ wallets is just one of the steps the platform is taking to safeguard its users’ assets and ensure that it continues to thrive in the future.
