OPNX, a first-of-its-kind, crypto-focused exchange that lets users trade claims of bankrupt crypto companies, is live as of Tuesday, CEO Leslie Lamb said in a tweet.
OPNX, short for Open Exchange, is a platform for trading what it says is a $20 billion market for crypto-related bankruptcy claims. The exchange will offer claims of companies such as FTX and CoinFlex. In early March, FTX claims were trading at 20 cents on the dollar.
OPNX is currently offering spot and futures trading for major tokens, such as bitcoin (BTC), ether (ETH), dogecoin (DOGE) and USD Coin (USDC). Claims trading is expected to go live in the coming weeks, as per Lamb.
CoinFlex’s flex (FLEX) tokens will serve as the native token of the OPNX platform. Holders can get up to a 50% discount on trading fees, which will be periodically burned, or permanently taken out of circulation. This may potentially improve value for FLEX holders in the future if demand and traction for OPNX increases and the supply gradually decreasing.
We are thrilled to announce that https://t.co/Q2HsUqSZ7E is now live! Sign up to trade spot and futures immediately. Claims trading coming very soon

Zhu Su and Kyle Davies, the founders of bankrupt hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, last month teamed with the co-founders of troubled crypto exchange CoinFLEX to create Open Exchange, calling it the “world’s first public marketplace for crypto claims trading and derivatives,” as CoinDesk reported.
