Voyager Digital Discloses Three Arrows Capital Exposure After Securing $485 Million Loan From Alameda

Summary:

  • Three Arrows Capital Owes Voyager 15,250 BTC and $350 million USDC.
  • Voyager has set June 27, 2022, as the deadline for full repayment of the digital assets.
  • The crypto broker is prepared to explore legal remedies if 3AC fails to meet its payment obligation, per reports.
  • Voyager also recently secured a $485 million credit line from SBF-backed Alameda research to meet liquidity demands.

Voyager Digital has revealed the extent of its exposure to Three Arrows Capital as the beleaguered crypto hedge fund faces mass liquidations and insolvency hurdles amid turbulent digital asset market conditions. 

According to a statement released by Voyager on Wednesday, 3AC owes the crypto broker $350 million in USDC and some 15,250 BTC worth an estimated $300 million at press time. Voyager requested a repayment of $25 million in Circle’s USDC by June 24, 2022, at first. 

While it’s unclear whether Su Zhu’s 3AC responded to the initial request or not, Voyager Digital has now asked for the crypto hedge fund to repay all digital assets by Monday, June 27, 2022. The total loan balance is approximately $650 million.

The crypto broker said that they are ready to consider legal remedies if 3AC defaults on the issued repayment date, per the statement.

Neither of these amounts has been repaid, and failure by 3AC to repay either requested amount by these specified dates will constitute an event of default. Voyager intends to pursue recovery from 3AC and is in discussions with the Company’s advisors regarding the legal remedies available. The Company is unable to assess at this point the amount it will be able to recover from 3AC.

Three Arrows Capital currently faces monetary obligations on multiple fronts following a massive slump in the crypto market after Bitcoin fell below $20,000. As EthereumWorldNews reported, 3AC’s leveraged positions on Bitmex, Deribit, and FTX were liquidated.

The crypto broker also confirmed its credit line agreement with Alameda Ventures, the VC firm backed by FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried. Alameda’s credit line includes $200 million in USD and USDC. A 15,000 BTC revolver is also attached to the deal.

Voyager Digital pointed out the loan will bolster the company’s balance sheet and protect customer assets in case of volatility or unexpected macro conditions.
