3AC Crypto Hedge Fund Goes Under, FTX’s Sam Bankman Lends Support To Some Affected Firms

The liquidation of 3AC crypto hedge fund is expected to cause ripple effects in the industry since they dealt with lots of crypto exchanges and trading firms. Hence FTX’s founder has offered to lend support to those companies.

Three Arrows Capital (3AC), a Singapore-based crypto hedge fund, has been ordered by a court in the British Virgin Islands to go into liquidation. Apart from this crypto broker Voyager Digital also issued a default notice after 3AC failed to make payments on a loan of 15,250 Bitcoin (BTC) and $350 million USDC, a crypto blockchain stablecoin, reported Reuters.

Sam Bankman-Fried, founder, FTX, a US-based crypto exchange, said in an interview with Forbes that they had given some crypto firms who suffered due to 3AC liquidation a line of credit worth $750 million. But assuming the nature of these events it's highly doubtful he will ever get his money back. “You know, we're willing to do a somewhat bad deal here, if that's what it takes to sort of stabilise things and protect customers,” he added.
