Cryptocurrency exchange Kraken said it has no exposure to Alameda Research, but that it holds around 9,000 FTT, the native token of embattled exchange FTX. 

"We have not listed the FTT token on our spot or futures exchanges and Kraken is not affected by the recent FTX news in any material way," said the company in a statement.
