The timetable and roadmap for refunding customer funds were disclosed in an official announcement by the cryptocurrency exchange FTX Japan on December 29. In the middle of February, users can withdraw their cryptocurrency holdings from the affiliated exchange Liquid Japan. The timeline and roadmap state that in mid-January, customers who qualify for FTX Japan returns will receive an email notification with a link to create an account at Liquid Japan. Customers with a Liquid Japan account are exempt from completing this step. After that, users can log in to Liquid Japan to check their cryptocurrency holdings and transfer them there from FTX Japan. However, it should be noted that a security audit that includes controls, reconciliation, and reviews may cause delays in the withdrawal of returned customer funds.

An executive from FTX Japan previously stated that a different withdrawal system is being developed to allow customers to resume withdrawals by the end of this year. As of November 10, the Japanese division reportedly had deposits totaling about 19.6 billion yen ($138 million). Sam Bankman-Fried, the former CEO of FTX, will be presented for arraignment before U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan on January 3, 2023, in the afternoon in Manhattan federal court.
