The founders of crypto fund Three Arrows Capital are missing

letizo News



The founders of crypto fund Three Arrows Capital are missing. They are being sought for the company’s bankruptcy filing.

Three Arrows Capital (3AC) was once the largest crypto fund and one of the most popular companies in the industry, but by today it has almost completely lost its management vertical. 

Three Arrows Capital’s problems became known in mid-June. Then, sources reported that the positions of the cryptocurrency fund were liquidated by the exchanges FTX, Deribit and BitMEX, due to which the position of the organization significantly deteriorated. At the same time, 24 hours later, sources also told about the disappearance of Soo Joo. As reported on June 18, the entrepreneur did not get in touch with the staff of the fund.

What’s going on with the 3AC crypto fund

The exact whereabouts of foundation founders Soo Joo and Kyle Livingston are currently unknown. They haven’t made any public statements, even on their social media accounts, for quite some time.

Some of the lawyers in the Three Arrows Capital bankruptcy case fear that the missing Zhu and Livingston may now try to sell the fund’s assets outside the debt liquidation process. 

There is a real and unavoidable risk that the fund’s debtor’s assets could be transferred or otherwise disposed of by parties other than court-appointed foreign representatives to the detriment of the debtor, its creditors and all other interested parties.

The representatives of the law are trivialized. Since it is impossible to establish the location of the co-founders of the crypto-fund, it is also impossible to predict the future course of events.

Statement of problems with the liquidation of the debt 3AC

Liquidators noted that due to the nature of 3AC’s business, “risk is heightened” because cryptocurrencies are “easily transferable.” Lawyers should facilitate “an orderly winding down of the company’s operations and begin liquidating its assets.” The missing co-founders of the company were filed with the court on Friday, July 8. One of the liquidators, named Christopher Farmer, had previously traveled to Singapore to visit the offices of 3AC. 

Documents and assets to be provided by the fund’s co-founders

There is still no trace of the founders of the foundation. This only makes things more heated by the day: if Soo Joo and Kyle Livingston don’t show up soon, it’s possible that local law enforcement may be after them.

Not only cryptocurrency platforms but also banks have been outraged by customers in recent days. The Chinese city of Zhengzhou recently saw massive protests over the blocking of a huge number of local bank accounts. Sources estimate that the amount of funds in blocked accounts could exceed the $1.5 billion mark.

Rumors about the plight of Chinese banks have been circulating on the Web since at least April 18. At that time, three major banks at once froze deposits of clients, referring to the update of their systems. 

This whole situation perfectly demonstrates the main flaw of the traditional financial system — complete centralization. The client, whose funds were left sitting idle at the bank, is essentially being held hostage by the bankers. 

The collapse of Three Arrows Capital is one of the major sensations in the cryptocurrency industry in 2022. Still, not too long ago, 3AC was considered a key player in the market, actively investing in new platforms, while Suu Joo was gaining hawkers amid his harsh remarks. 

Now the fund not only faces an asset sale, but also the prospect of having to track down the founders. The situation can only change so drastically and dramatically in the digital asset industry.


Bitcoin onchain metric are stronger than ever

bitcoin onchain metrics

Galaxy Digital analysts published a report that examined key bitcoins onchain metrics (BTC), compared the world’s main cryptocurrency to other asset classes and explained what events could be the catalyst for the coming price rally. The company is confident that the bulls have plenty of reasons to remain optimistic – even despite difficult macroeconomic conditions.

BTC has become the best performing asset of 2023

Bitcoin is the best performing asset in 2023 compared to a lot of stocks, fixed income securities, indices, and commodities. It shows the best or some of the best performance over various time horizons (except for 1 year), and it looks even stronger over the long haul.

In addition, bitcoin’s correlation with the Nasdaq and S&P 500 stock indices has begun to decline, while its correlation with gold, which is considered a classic haven asset, has risen sharply. This happened against the backdrop of the crisis that engulfed U.S. banks and led to the closure of Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate and Signature.

Given the nature of the current crisis, in which the system of partial bank reserves is tested for strength, the fundamental characteristics of the BTC favorably distinguish it from traditional assets.

Accumulation, not driving price rally speculation

A number of key market indicators indicate that bitcoin’s price rally is driven by the accumulation of coins on the spot, not speculation in the derivatives market. The futures funding indicator has remained virtually unchanged since the beginning of 2023 – meaning that the market is net-neutral regarding speculative positioning. The same can be said about volume and open interest in the CME.

The total number of addresses with non-zero balances also continues to grow rapidly, with more than 45 million wallets holding BTC today. At the same time, most of them have never spent coins, but only received new ones.

The approaching halving will affect the level of inflation in the BTC network

The next bitcoin halving will occur in April 2024 and will cause the network’s inflation rate to fall below 1%. The halving events of 2012, 2016 and 2020 catalyzed a price rally and reached a new all-time high as investor demand for BTC quickly exceeded the declining supply level.

This event will put bitcoin among the most stable assets and make it less susceptible to inflation than gold and silver.

Whales are interested in Litecoin, again: will it help LTC price return to the $100 mark

Litecoin price forecast

In February, Litecoin, albeit briefly, returned to the $100 level for the first time since the collapse of the Terra ecosystem in May 2022. In early March, the price of the asset dipped below the $70 mark again. But that didn’t seem to hinder the whales’ plans, as large holders actively bought LTC during the correction.

Whale activity continues to rise

According to analyst firm IntoTheBlock, the average LTC transaction size increased more than 600% in March 2023, from $13,355 to $81,022.

The increase in average transaction size as the price pulls back signals an influx of large investors looking to buy back the decline in the asset. Given the financial strength of the whales, this could push LTC to another rally in the coming weeks.

Litecoin price forecast – could reach the $110 mark

Santiment’s Market to Realized Value Ratio (MVRV) shows that investors who bought Litecoin in the last 30 days made a 10% profit. According to historical MVRV readings, LTC holders have often captured profits of around 20%. This means that the $100 level is likely to be the next resistance zone.

If the price of the asset can combine above $100, the coin may continue its upward movement towards $115. However, bears can reverse the situation if the LTC falls below $80. With further declines, LTC could fall back below $70.

Banking for crypto-businesses

Hong Kong subsidiaries of major Chinese banks began to provide services for local cryptocurrency firms involved in projects related to Bitcoin, altcoins and various startups. It was reported by Bloomberg, citing sources in the region.

It is alleged that the local branches of Bank of Communications, Bank of China and Shanghai Pudong Development Bank have begun, or are working to provide banking services to crypto-businesses. According to the publication, a representative of an unnamed Chinese bank even visited the office of a crypto firm to promote the services of the financial institution. A top manager of an unnamed large Chinese bank said in a media commentary that banks promote their services in Hong Kong due to the tacit approval of Beijing. The interest in the business is also due to the uncertainty around lending to the local market, they said.

Loyal attitude to the market of cryptocurrencies in Hong Kong has already “bounced back” to local investors with considerable losses. According to calculations by local law enforcement agencies, the region lost over $200 million in 2022 alone. 2,336 cases of crypto-fraud were registered in Hong Kong in 2022.

However, Chinese authorities’ interest is not limited to the crypto market. In early March, the South China Morning Post reported that China intends to stimulate the digitalization of the economy in Hong Kong with its own currency. The authorities are offering citizens a 20% discount for making payments in digital yuan. At the same time, the promotion is valid only for Hong Kong citizens and only in the southern technology center of Shenzhen (connecting China and Hong Kong).

Recall that in the fall of 2022, Hong Kong authorities announced plans to develop a cryptocurrency market in the region. According to the Hong Kong government’s website, the authorities will work with local regulators to create “favorable conditions” for developing the local cryptocurrency industry.

Early we reported that Cryptotraders lost more than $250,000,000 in liquidations after Fed rate hike.
