Voyager Digital announces its going into bankruptcy
Cryptocurrency lending platform Voyager Digital filed for bankruptcy protection Wednesday as the hedge fund faced serious financial difficulties following the events of Three Arrows Capital.
According to court documents, the creditor filed for bankruptcy under Chapter 11 in the Southern District of New York.
The company has over $1 billion in estimated assets and more than 100,000 creditors. The move comes shortly after withdrawals were suspended on the cryptocurrency lending platform.
Currently, it appears to be Voyager’s biggest lender after it placed a $500 million line of credit on the cryptocurrency lending platform. Voyager pulled about $75 million from here. The bankruptcy could also pressure Almaeda’s finance, which could have an avalanche effect on the cryptocurrency market.
