Zhu Su and Kyle Davies, the founders of failed crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC), have teamed with the co-founders of crypto exchange CoinFlex on the creation of Open Exchange, touting it as the "world's first public market place for crypto claims trading and derivatives."

Noting a $20 billion market of claimants "desperately searching" for resolution to money lost at bankrupt crypto firms including FTX, Voyager Digital, Celsius Network, CoinDesk sister company Genesis, BlockFi, Mt. Gox and 3AC itself, Open Exchange promises the ability to monetize claims by providing a marketplace for their trading.
