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.
