FTX has recently been pursuing aggressive crypto acquisitions. The exchange recently acquired Voyager Digital, a crypto lending platform that went bankrupt in June, followed by taking control of BlockFi, another crypto lending platform, for a whopping $25 million.

In the recent interview, SBF shared how his recent acquisitions will help the company strengthen its position in the United States.

SBF also stated that the exchange is looking forward to expanding its services in Europe, especially in France, where crypto regulations are favourable enough for the team to build its base by establishing its first European headquarters in the region.
