Voyager Digital reduces withdrawal limits to $10,000 amid 3AC exposure risk

Voyager Digital recently announced a $200 million loan from Alameda Ventures amid publicizing a $612 million exposure to Three Arrows Capital. Shares in Voyager digital dropped 60% on the news of the bailout.

Users are now reporting that the platform’s withdrawal limit has been reduced to just $10,000 withdrawal per day. The previous withdrawal limit was $25,000, according to a helpdesk article on its website. The move is likely to be a part of efforts to reduce the risks of a liquidity crisis amid turbulent market conditions and its exposure to 3AC.

3AC was suffering an insolvency crisis and could not pay a $25 million default notice from Voyager, due by June 24. The inability to pay back just 4% of its debt does not bode well for its ability to repay the entire $612 million. A report filed by Voyager Digital on May 16, 2022, stated,

“The Company limits such credit risk by lending to borrowers that the Company believes, based on its due diligence, to be high-quality financial institutions with sufficient capital to meet their obligations as they come due.”

According to its recent earnings, Voyager made a $61.5 million loss in the first quarter of 2022. As of May 2022, Voyager had $3.4 billion in crypto assets and had loaned out $2.4 billion. It also holds in custody $5.4 billion in client crypto assets. With a net $1 billion in assets Voyager may be able to handle the ~$20 million per month in losses. However, a bank run on its custodial holdings could cause severe concerns for the exchange.

Among the worried investors, one user who had raised his withdrawal limit to $125,000 had a $90,000 withdrawal refused, as others report their limits dropped to just $10,000 per day. Several other users on Twitter have confirmed their limits have also been reduced to just $10,000 per day.
