Crypto derivatives exchange Bybit has launched a new support fund to help institutional traders access liquidity in the wake of the FTX collapse — an event that triggered a fresh wave of panic selling across the digital asset space.
The support fund, valued at $100 million, is available to market makers and high-frequency trading institutions struggling with financial or operational difficulties following the collapse of FTX earlier this month, Bybit disclosed on Nov. 24. The funds will be distributed to eligible applicants at a 0% interest rate.
To be eligible, institutional traders must be active on Bybit or other exchanges. The maximum amount distributed per applicant is $10 million and the funds must be used for spot and Tether (USDT) perpetual trading on Bybit.
