    En respuesta a las publicaciones, el CEO de BlockFi Zac Prince publicó un tweet diciendo "puedo confirmar en un 100% que no se venderá por $25M". Y agregó: "Aliento a todos a confiar solamente los detalles que escuchen directamente de @BlockFi. Compartiremos más con ustedes en cuanto podamos".

    A principios de este mes, se informó que BlockFi cerraría una ronda de financiación a la baja con una valuación de $1000 millones, en comparación con su valoración anterior de $3000 millones, en marzo del año pasado.

    FTX ha otorgado previamente un crédito de $250 millones a BlockFi. El prestamista dijo a mitad de junio que reduciría en un 20% su fuerza de trabajo, alrededor de 170 personas.
