Troubled crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital ordered into liquidation by a court in the British Virgin Islands; to sell assets and holdings in crypto startups
Remember Three Arrows Capital, the crypto hedge fund that led to the demise of crypto lenders BlockFi and Celsius Network? Three Arrows Capital has now plunged into liquidation as the crisis engulfed the global digital assets sector, SkyNews first reported the story. The liquidation makes Three Arrows one of the biggest casualties of the latest so-called “crypto winter.”

Three Arrows has hired Teneo in the last few days to deal with the liquidation process, CNBC also reported, citing a person with knowledge of the matter who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Three Arrows is now considering selling its assets. The hedge fund has also hired legal and financial advisers to help work out a solution for its investors and lenders, after suffering heavy losses from a broad market selloff in digital assets, the firm’s founders said on Friday.
“We have always been believers in crypto and we still are,” Kyle Davies, Three Arrows’s co-founder, said in an interview. “We are committed to working things out and finding an equitable solution for all our constituent.”
Meanwhile, Three Arrows’ margin call has already rippled through the entire crypto market. One of the affected crypto companies is crypto lender BlockFi, which recently announced that it has liquidated its position in Three Arrows.
