Three Arrows Capital in Turmoil 

Three Arrows Capital was one of the companies that went bankrupt during this year’s cryptocurrency bear market. According to a court statement issued in July by its liquidator Teneo, it owes its creditors $2.8 billion as a result of a series of highly leveraged deals in relation to the Terra (LUNA) network, which failed in May.

Based in New York On August 24, Teneo obtained an important court judgment in Singapore that authorizes it to investigate Three Arrow’s local assets. Teneo controlled at least $40 million of the firm’s assets at the time.

3AC, co-founded by Zhu Su and Kyle Davies, is one of the most prominent crypto hedge funds (which focus on investments in digital assets like cryptocurrencies) around and was known for its highly leveraged bets.  But a slump in digital currency prices, which has seen billions of dollars wiped off the market in recent weeks, has hurt 3AC and exposed a liquidity crisis at the company.
