While I firmly believe in this future, the recent protracted volatility and contagion in the cryptocurrency markets as well as the failure of Three Arrows Capital force us to act with intention and resolve right away.

3AC’s started with the catastrophic fall of Terra USD in the market crash. The $60 Billion crash made sure that, many crypto institutions go down and fall in the market. Since, Three Arrows had $200 Million in Terra Luna, $40 Million in staked Ethereum, both suffered huge loses bringing the total worth of the company from $3 Billion to much lower.


Voyager’s reputed creditors.

As, 3AC failed to repay back Voyager, the crypto broker went on to get credit facilities from reputed institutions. Among the creditors, Alameda Research, the trading firm founded by CEO of FTX Sam Bankman-Fried, Galaxy Digital, Blockdaemon and Digital Currency group.

The two lines of credit offered by Alameda Ventures, which included $200 million in cash, USD Coin, and 15,000 Bitcoin, were set to mature at the end of 2024 and had a 5 percent annual interest rate.

Voyager’s current position.

As of June 24, Voyager claimed to have around $137 million in cash and crypto assets in its possession. The business revealed the following Monday that it had employed Moelis & Company, an investment bank, as financial advisors and had utilised $75 million of Alameda’s loan to facilitate customer orders and withdrawals. According to people with knowledge of the situation, Alameda Ventures does not anticipate recovering that money. “You know, we’re willing to accept a relatively awful deal here, if that’s what it takes to sort of stabilize things and safeguard customers,” Sam Bankman-Fried said in an exclusive interview with Forbes.
