Three Arrows Capital Crisis

  Voyager announced the suspension of operations this time because of the default of Three Arrows Capital.

  Three Arrows, a hedge fund management firm that provides risk-adjusted returns, was founded by hedge fund managers Zhu Su and Kyle Davies, according to public information.

The company began its full transformation into a crypto hedge fund manager in 2017.

Three Arrows Capital has invested in Avax, Near, Aave, Derabit, Starkware, Terra Luna, Axie Infinity and other projects during the bear market.

At their peak, the market estimated they had between $10 billion and $18 billion in assets under management.

  The Monetary Authority of Singapore issued a statement on June 30 saying that Three Arrows Capital was registered locally in 2013, and its assets under management did not exceed S$250 million; from July 2020 to September 2020 and from November 2020 to 2021 Restrictions on managing assets were violated several times during August 2009; furthermore, directors and shareholding changes were not notified and the veracity of the information could not be assured.

  Zhu su, founder of Three Arrows Capital, is very influential, with 560,000 followers on Twitter.

He also regularly interacts with his followers, using his influence to indirectly influence prices.

In February 2021, he predicted on a show that the price of BTC would reach $2.5 million.

  Before the collapse of the cryptocurrency Luna last month, Three Arrows Capital paid $559.6 million to take the offer.

And now these cryptocurrencies are worth around $670.

  Since November last year, cryptocurrencies have entered a bear market, including Bitcoin, Binance and other well-known cryptocurrencies have continued to decline, and almost all of the projects invested by Three Arrows Capital are in a state of loss.

  In June this year, news about Sanjian Capital being insolvent, in a liquidity crisis, and going bankrupt and liquidation continued to ferment in the market.

On June 15, Zhu Su, founder of Three Arrows Capital, said on social media, "We are communicating with relevant parties and are committed to solving the problem."

  A British Virgin Islands court has ordered troubled cryptocurrency hedge fund Three Arrows Capital into liquidation, Sky News reported on June 29, citing sources.
