Solana-based decentralized prime brokerage platform Oxygen Protocol revealed on Nov. 15 that 95% of its MAPS and OXY tokens supply were held on bankrupt crypto exchange FTX.

The statement said the struggling crypto firm did not have any equity in its business, but it held a significant portion of its tokens.

“(FTX) acted as the custodian for over 95% of the overall supply of our ecosystem tokens โ€” both locked and unlocked.”

The MAPS and Oxygen team expressed shock about the FTX bankruptcy incidents, adding that they only have access to publicly available information.

Oxygen Protocol said it was considering all options to protect its ecosystem. The DeFi protocol said it has employed legal advisors to assist in the process.

Meanwhile, the crypto community appears to be unsurprised by the latest revelations. Several comments suggested that Sam Bankman-Fried controlled the protocol and that he was tweeting the announcements.

ZachXBT pointed out that this was the protocol’s first tweet since April 2022.

Maps and Oxygen protocol were projects backed by Alameda Research. In January 2021, Alameda Research led a $50 million investment round in Maps.me. It also led a $40 million investment round in Oxygen in February 2021.

Reports revealed that MAPS and OXY accounted for a significant portion of Alameda’s balance sheet.

According to CryptoSlate data, OXY has shed 46% of its value over the last seven days, trading for $0.0202 as of press time. MAPS is also down roughly 47% and valued at $0.062 as of press time.
