Inside the presentation Hage also noted that bankrupt cryptocurrency hedge fund Three Arrows Capital still owes $650 million to Voyager.so while this first tranche of withdrawals allows just over 35% of client funds to be withdrawn, “the main focus will shift to recovering additional assets that can be distributed to creditors” once the initial distribution is complete.
Besides, an additional $445 million of client funds could also be made available to creditors pending final resolution of Alameda Research’s preferred lawsuit against Voyager, which is not expected to occur until at least mid-September 2023.
