FTX EU has begun the process of allowing customers to withdraw funds locked up since parent FTX filed for bankruptcy protection last November, according to a Friday press release.

To that end, the company has set up a website through which balances can be verified and then withdrawal requests can be made. Customers were notified of the arrangement on Thursday via email by restructuring specialist firm Kroll.

FTX's European operation was initially announced on Mar. 7, 2022.
