Direct Victims of Three Arrow Capitals

A crypto exchange platform, Voyager Digital in New York with a multibillion-dollar valuation filed in July for chapter 11, reporting Three Capital owes the company $650 million. The Park Avenue-based company, Genesis Global Trading had lent Three Arrows $2.3billion. An early crypto blockchain company Blockchain.com delivered digital wallets and developed them into a major exchange. However, the company faces $270 million in default loans from 3AC and discharged a quarter of its employees.

Is 3AC Responsible for Crypto Crash of 2022?

Among various crypto observers, there is a huge debate that Three Arrows may be responsible for the huge crypto crash of 2022. The chaos led to the fall of bitcoins and other assets by 70% obliterating trillion dollars from the market value.

Three Arrows Capital has always showcased itself as using its own money. As Zhu, the CEO of 3AC said to Bloomberg in February 2022, “We don’t have any external investors”. By the middle of July, the creditors came forward with an estimated value of $2.8 billion in claims. The amount will however only increase from there.

Almost every investor in crypto seemed to have lent 3AC their digital assets, even their employees who deposited their salary with the ‘borrowing desk’ in an interest swap. The majority of the people are disappointment with the firm. All this money is gone now along with funds and parts of treasuries of 3AC projects. The true amount of the case may be unknown as many startup companies placed their money with the company.

The yacht looms as an outrageous self of greed, hubris, and recklessness of the company’s hiding co-founders. While the industry is in a constant battle to defend itself as the future of finance and not a ‘scam. Three Arrows may have embraced the other side, leaving the industry in dismay.
