Binance announced that it intends to fully acquire FTX to help the exchange cover its liquidity crunch.

Changpeng Zhao, the CEO of Binance, said on Twitter that FTX approached the exchange looking for help as it was struggling with liquidity on its platform. CZ said that Binance signed a non-binding letter of intent (LOI) to acquire the company in the coming days.

A full due diligence process is expected to be completed in the next few days, as well as more detailed information about the acquisition.

There is a lot to cover and will take some time. This is a highly dynamic situation, and we are assessing the situation in real-time,” CZ said on Twitter. “Binance has the discretion to pull out from the deal at any time. We expect FTT to be highly volatile in the coming days as things develop.”
