Is VGX all set to “Voyage” to the bears as Voyager Digital files for bankruptcy?
Voyager Digital [VGX], the United States-based crypto brokerage, is one of the companies to be liquidated due to Three Arrows Capital’s demise (3AC). In a 22 June press release, the firm stated that its investment exposure to 3AC consisted of 15,250 BTC and $350 million USDC. In a later press release dated 27 June, Voyager Digital issued a notice of default to 3AC, requesting the repayment of the already disclosed loan.
However, due to the 3AC’s failure to honor its obligations, Voyager Digital and its main operating subsidiaries filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on 5 July. As confirmed by its CEO, Stephen Ehrlich, the decision was due “to the default of Three Arrows Capital.”
