(Reuters) –Crypto broker Voyager Digital Ltd has lowered its daily withdrawal limits to $10,000 from $25,000, according to an update on the company‘s website.
The change comes after the company on Wednesday said its subsidiary may issue a default notice to Three Arrows Capital Ltd if the cryptocurrency hedge fund fails to repay its loan.
Voyager did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Voyager’s total exposure to Three Arrows Capital consists of 15,250 bitcoin (nearly $310 million) and $350 million USD Coin (USDC), it said.
The New Jersey-based company said it had initially asked for repayment of $25 million USDC by June 24, and later requested that the entire amount be repaid by June 27. However, neither of those have been repaid, Voyager said.
Voyager is also discussing legal remedies available to recover the amount from the hedge fund, it said.
Earlier this month, Voyager signed an agreement https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/voyager-digital-provides-market-update-301572971.html with Alameda Ventures Ltd for a revolving line of credit, seeking access to additional capital to meet its customers‘ liquidity needs as crypto prices take a hit.
