The FTX debtors will recover 100 per cent of the value paid for Embed's acquisition and all the assets held under the names of Bankman-Fried, Singh and Wang at Embed as part of the settlement.

The debtors will continue to pursue other claims against the former CEO and executives, FTX said.

FTX in May filed three lawsuits in the US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware targeting former FTX insiders including indicted founder Bankman-Fried, Embed executives including founder Michael Giles, and Embed shareholders. FTX was seeking to claw back more than the $240 million it paid for Embed.

FTX closed on the Embed acquisition just six weeks before the crypto exchange collapsed in November. It lost billions in customer money while propping up its own risky investments, actions its current CEO John Ray called "old-fashioned embezzlement"
