Discord servers connected to projects that were specified through the FTX NFTs platform over the last year are now filling up with criticisms from users who cannot withdraw their Solana-based acquisitions from the FTX account wallet.

In some cases, even those who moved their NFTs to external, self-custody wallets now can’t see the NFT artwork because of server issues. Links to many of the projects undertaken through the FTX NFTs marketplace are also now broken. FTX revealed on Friday that it had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy security.

The involved projects also include major music and sports brands, including concert festivals like Coachella and Tomorrowland, NBA star Steph Curry’s 2974 NFT collection, and Formula 1-themed NFTs from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas racing team.
