Mr Bankman-Fried pleaded guilty earlier this month to eight charges of wire fraud, security fraud, and conspiracy to launder money.
The company informed a Delaware bankruptcy judge last week that it had recouped more than $5bn worth of assets.
On Tuesday, FTX announced that it had recovered $1.7bn cash, $3.5bn liquid cryptocurrency, and $300m liquid securities.
Additionally, the firm stated that significant shortfalls had been identified at its US and international exchanges.
The company of Mr Bankman-Fried, valued at $32bn a year earlier, filed for bankruptcy protection in November.
