Three Arrows Capital is one of the victims. On June 27, Voyager issued Three Arrows Capital with a notice of default for its $350 million loan in USDC and 15,250 BTC.

According to the plan, customers with cryptocurrencies in their accounts will receive in exchange a combination of the cryptocurrencies in their account, the proceeds of the recovery made from 3AC, Voyager tokens and common shares of the newly reorganized company. . Customers will be able to decide the proportion of common stock and crypto they wish to receive, although subject to a certain maximum threshold.
On the other hand, customers with USD deposits in their accounts will be allowed to access their funds once a fraud prevention process and reconciliation has been completed by Metropolitan Commercial Bank.
