As the crypto markets continue to trend downward, the world’s second-largest crypto exchange, FTX, remains undeterred.

“Our priorities have not changed,” Mark Wetjen, head of policy and regulatory strategy at FTX, told TechCrunch. “Markets will do what they do, but the reality is that the digital asset marketplace and digital asset ecosystem, we believe, is here to stay.”

For one, FTX has reportedly gathered over $2 billion for acquisitions and stakes in other companies. The company has also launched a $2 billion venture capital fund earlier this year to back teams building in web3.

“One of the challenges of operating in the space is the relative lack of clarity.” Mark Wetjen, head of policy, FTX
