3AC has to repay loan by 27 June

The company said in an update on Wednesday that it had recently asked 3AC to settle part of the loan ($25 million USDC) by 24 June. It then followed up on that request with a demand that the entire loan (BTC and USDC) be paid by 27 June, 2022.

The two dates have not passed yet, but Voyager says it would “constitute an event of default” should this happen.

The company is thus ready to pursue the recovery of the funds from the Singapore-based crypto hedge fund, it added in the statement. This includes via all legal means available.

Voyager recently secured a credit facility from Alameda, with the loan consisting of $200 million cash and USDC as well as 15,000 BTC.  The company will use the facility to protect its customer’s assets as the industry navigates a brutal bear market.

Per the latest update, Voyager has roughly $152 million in cash and also holds “crypto assets on hand.” There’s also approximately $20 million set aside for the purchase of USDC.
