Summary
What we like
FTT serves as the backbone for the FTX ecosystem, providing fee rebates to holders. A portion of fees generated on FTX markets are used to reduce the supply and increase FTT scarcity for token holders.
What we like less
FTX is a centralized exchange so the token is liable to censorship risks. The asset is exposed to death spiral risk as it was used as collateral by sister entity, Alameda, and is dependent on viability of the FTX exchange.
What it means for you
