Recent court documents of embattled crypto hedge fund 3AC show that the company owes $2.3 billion to Genesis Asia Pacific, one of the largest lenders.
As per the recent documents, more than 30 companies had lent billions of dollars to now-defunct crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital (3AC). On Monday, July 18. liquidators of 3AC published the court documents revealing the details.
The document shows that Genesis Asia Pacific was the largest creditor lending $2.3 billion to 3AC. Genesis CEO Michael Moro also confirmed that the parent group Digital Currency Group (DCG) has taken some of the liabilities of Genesis. Speaking to The Block, a spokesperson of the DCG said:
“Both the DCG and Genesis balance sheets remain strong. With no remaining exposure to Three Arrows Capital, Genesis continues to be well-capitalized and its operations are business as usual.”
Three Arrows Capital was once the biggest crypto hedge fund in the industry. However, the collapse of the Terra ecosystem left 3AC exposed. Teneo, the firm appointed to oversee 3AC’s liquidation published the 1000-page legal document online.
