Crypto daily spotlight
Three Arrows Capital considers asset sales, bailout, the Wall Street Journal reports.
Brief introduction: Three Arrows Capital (3AC) is a hedge fund manager that provides risk-adjusted returns. The firm was established in 2012 by Su Zhu and Kyle Davies and is headquartered in Singapore, Central Region, Singapore. Recently, rumours of insolvency started swirling after 3AC started moving assets to top-up funds on decentralised finance (DeFi) platforms such as Aave to avoid potential liquidations.
Why it matters:
3AC co-founder Kyle Davies told the WSJ that 3AC is working things out and finding an equitable solution for all its constituents
Davies admits that 3AC suffered heavy losses from the recent LUNA collapse as it invested over $200 million in LUNA tokens as part of the $1 billion raised by the Luna Foundation Guard in February
3AC is now proactively seeking solutions, including asset sales and a rescue by another firm, and hopes to reach a settlement with creditors, Davies said
