Loomdart, a veteran member of the crypto community and the co-founder of eGirl Capital, is advocating for an FTX reboot.

In this episode, Loomdart explains why 'FTX 2.0' could represent an opportunity for over a million FTX creditors to be made whole in a unique way.

As Loomdart explains,

"My quickest pitch for FTX 2.0 is you effectively get to 'airdrop' an exchange to over a million people who have a big vested interest in using this exchange."
