According to documents CNBC claims to have seen, FTX’s revenue increased between fiscal years 2020 and 2021, from $90 million in 2020 to $1.02 billion in 2021.
Battling Prolonged Crypto Winter

According to reports, FTX generated $270 million in Q1 2022. The exchange’s performance throughout the crypto winter, however, has not yet been disclosed. Despite the impressive results in the first quarter, the prolonged crypto winter has certainly affected the growth trajectory as a result of frequent market collapses.
According to the research, FTX had $2.5 billion in cash and a 27% profit margin at the end of 2021. It is true that Bankman-Fried and his firm have taken advantage of the present circumstances to purchase several failing companies, despite his repeated statements that he intends to aid other crypto entrepreneurs.
As of right now, FTX and BlockFi have agreed on a $240 million price for FTX to acquire Bithumb, a cryptocurrency exchange based in South Korea. It also made an offer to acquire Celsius but quickly backed out.
