The House event, titled "Investigating the Collapse of FTX," will follow a similar hearing in the Senate Agriculture Committee scheduled for Dec. 1.

The United States House Financial Services Committee has announced it will be holding a hearing to investigate the events around the collapse of crypto exchange FTX.

House Financial Services Committee Chair Maxine Waters said Nov. 28 that lawmakers will explore the collapse of FTX at the Dec. 13 inquiry, expected to be the first in a series of hearings about the bankruptcy of a major crypto exchange. This one was first announced on Nov. 16 but not scheduled until now.

The House committee said in its previous announcement that it expected to hear from individuals and companies involved in the events that led to FTX filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, including former CEO Sam Bankman-Fried, Alameda Research and Binance. Though Bankman-Fried was reportedly still based in the Bahamas at the time of publication, New York Times journalist Andrew Sorkin said on Nov. 24 that the former CEO intended to speak at a conference in New York City on Nov. 30.

The U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee has also scheduled a hearing on “Lessons Learned from the FTX Collapse” for Dec. 1, with Commodity Futures Trading Commission Cchair Rostin Behnam scheduled to appear as a witness. It’s unclear if Bankman-Fried will also speak to the committee should he remain in the country following his New York trip.

FTX has been a target for lawmakers and regulators around the world following the firm filing for bankruptcy in the District of Delaware on Nov. 11. The Australian government says its Treasury department plans on implementing regulations aimed at improving investor protection next year, while the Monetary Authority of Singapore has faced scrutiny for not warning investors about FTX.
