Earlier this week, a Court from the British Virgin Islands ordered liquidation of Three Arrows Capital (3AC), a crypto hedge fund that was in trouble. The firm had proven beyond doubt that it could not meet its debt obligations.

Sources who requested anonymity because the details have not been made public stated that Teneo would set up a website to provide instructions for creditors on how they can file claims for refunds. It is not known how long the refund process could take or if every creditor will receive their full amount.

Three Arrows Capital’s liquidation has caused a lot of distress for the digital currency ecosystem. But, only a handful other crypto-focused platforms are also experiencing a serious liquidity crisis.
