FTX – Declared bankruptcy, class action possible

FTX Crypto Exchange

It is one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. In January 2022, it was valued at $32 billion. However, in a fairly short time, it significantly lost its value. What were the reasons for this?

It all started with the information published on November 2, 2022 by CoinDesk

(link to the article: https://www.coindesk.com/business/2022/11/02/divisions-in-sam-bankman-frieds-crypto-empire-blur-on-his-trading-titan-alamedas-balance -sheet/ ). It was revealed in the content of this article that Alameda Research (another company founded by the founder of FTX) is heavily dependent on FTT – a token issued by this exchange. In view of this balance sheet, it was realized that it was not as expected. Previously, FTX was presented as a professional, very advanced and successful operation.

publication date: November 29, 2022

Scientific and technical research

Undoubtedly, scientific and technical cooperation is one of the most important issues
in the development process. Research in this area allows for further development , to a greater or lesser extent, of the whole society, even in the field of exact sciences, such as biology, as exemplified by the development of COVID-19 vaccines.

The aforementioned research may be based on the smooth cooperation of many countries, organizations, such as the European Union, which, however, under the Lisbon Treaty , which gives it legal personality, can be treated as a state, i.e. in the same way as Poland or the United States, whose scientific and technical cooperation is based on, among others Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Poland and the Government of the United States of America on scientific and technological cooperation, signed in Washington on April 23, 2018.

Draft law on family foundations in Poland adopted

publication date: November 29, 2022

The Polish Council of Ministers adopted the draft law on family foundations, submitted by the Minister of Development and Technology.

Who can set up a family foundation?

In Poland, nearly 830,000 of enterprises are family businesses that generate annual revenue of PLN 322 billion. Many of them face, or will face in the near future, the need to transfer their assets to legal successors. A large number of companies also intend to carry out succession, which will allow them to manage their assets in a multi-generational perspective.

In order to effectively carry out the succession, entrepreneurs must have successors who will be able and willing to continue running the business, or at least perform ownership functions in it, entrusting management to a professional management board. Therefore, the Polish government has prepared tools that will allow to build organizational structures that ensure the continuation of business and protection of assets – in a perspective longer than one generation – without the need for personal involvement of legal successors in running a business.
