Miami Heat Cuts Ties With FTX in Wake of the Cryptocurrency Exchange’s Bankruptcy

The former American Airlines arena, located in downtown Miami, is shopping for a new partner

According to CNN, “The NBA’s Miami Heat and Miami-Dade County have terminated their relationship with bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX and will search for a new naming rights partner for their arena in downtown Miami. The announcement came after the FTX group earlier on Friday filed for bankruptcy in the United States and its CEO resigned, marking a stunning downfall for one of the biggest and most powerful players in the crypto industry. Miami-Dade County and Miami Heat said in a joint statement Friday night that the reports about FTX are ‘extremely disappointing’ and that they will work together to find a new naming rights partner for the arena, which was only renamed as FTX Arena last year.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Manhattan U.S. attorney’s office is investigating FTX’s sudden collapse.
