All about Voyager asking for repayment of $200 million loan from Alameda


Court filings done by digital travel indicate that the bankrupt crypto lender is seeking to unwind a loan of $200 million which has been extended to Alameda SearchSam Bankman-Fried’s quantitative crypto trading firm.

Refund Details

The loan was initiated in September last year against the guarantee of $160 million posted by Alameda Research. Upon reimbursement, Voyager will release the guarantee, which consists of 4.65 million FTX tokens (FTT) worth $111.6 million, and 63.75 million serum (SRM) worth $49.25 million.

6,553 BTC ($127.8 million) and 51,204 ETH ($70.2 million) constitute the principal amount of the loan. The loan consists of smaller amounts denominated in several other tokens. Reimbursement is due by September 30.

When Voyager had voluntarily requested Chapter 11 bankruptcy July 5, Alameda Research announcement within days he would be ready to repay all outstanding debts and secure his security at Voyager’s discretion.

Accumulate money

Voyager Digital’s recent actions suggest the company is looking to hoard cash, which could counter the hole in its balance sheet left by several creditors who defaulted on their loans, including the $650 million now defunct crypto hedge fund loan Three Capita ArrowsI.

Voyager had announced on September 6 that it would liquidate its remaining assets through an auction scheduled for September 13. This news brought relief to creditors as the auction indicated multiple bids for the company’s assets. From the 20 September, the auction had not concluded.

Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX and Binance crypto exchange have been identified as the two favorites competing to acquire Voyager’s assets at the auction.
