There were 88 different parties interested in purchasing the assets, according to the legal representation for Voyager. Even though none of the identities of the interested firms were publicly revealed, FTX and Binance have both shown interest in Voyager’s assets in the past.
Cryptocurrency exchange FTX is said to have outbid digital asset investment firm Wave Financial in the auction for Voyager’s assets, however it is not known how much money FTX offered for the company’s holdings.
Voyager is trying to generate liquidity via the sale of its assets so that it can pay its clients, whose monies have been frozen since July 1st. The paperwork filed in court states that the identity of the successful bidder would not be disclosed until the 29th of September.
After this date, it is anticipated that efforts will be made to commence the potential reimbursement of creditors and users whose money have been locked down. Since it filed its Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition on July 6th, Voyager has also been reorganising its business operations.
