Troubled crypto exchange FTX will conduct a fundraise next week, Reuters reported, citing an internal memo.
The raise could end up being for FTX International and FTX US combined. The news come a day after FTX's deal to sell itself to rival Binance fell through.
Hours after the Binance pull back, Tron founder Justin Sun said that he is "putting together a solution" for the beleaguered FTX.
In the memo cited by Reuters, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried said that he has held talks with Sun for a fundraise.
