The value of the FTX token (FTT) rose 17% after it was reported that the bankruptcy administrator of the FTX exchange, John Ray, is considering restarting it.

The value of FTT rose from $0.99 to $1.16 at the moment. According to CoinGecko, as of 10:30 Moscow time, the price of FTT is hovering around the $1.07 mark, with a token trading volume of $22.2 million in the last 24 hours.

The token rate rose sharply at midnight Moscow time when a member of the FTX lender community wrote on Twitter that "FTX CEO John Ray III confirms plans to launch FTX 2.0."

The information is based on Ray's April performance report posted on the Kroll law firm's website on May 22. FTX creditors pointed out that the head of FTX spent more than 6.5 hours reviewing materials related to the FTX relaunch (FTX 2.0) - the terms of reference, plans, comments, and next steps in that direction.

The question of re-launching the bankrupt crypto exchange has been studied by managers for months. In January, Ray said he was considering re-launching FTX.com to recoup losses from creditors and customers.

At a court hearing in early April, FTX bankruptcy attorney Andy Ditderich of Sullivan & Cromwell said FTX plans to present a preliminary reorganization plan in July. He said the plan could include a restart of the platform.
