Bankrupt crypto exchange FTX has reached an agreement with a consortium of buyers to sell most of its stake in artificial intelligence startup Anthropic for $884 million, according to a Delaware court filing late Friday.

The March 22 document lists a mix of buyers, with the largest stake being given to ATIC Third International Investment Company, an enterprise linked to a sovereign wealth fund exchange in the United Arab Emirates. That group is buying about $500 million worth of Anthropic shares.
