Binance.US has reached a deal to buy the assets of bankrupt crypto firm Voyager for $1 billion, with the aim of returning funds to customers.
Crypto to be Returned to Customers
Bankrupt cryptocurrency lender Voyager announced that Binance.US will purchase its assets for $1.022 billion, with the aim to reimburse the firm’s customers.
“The Binance.US bid aims to return crypto to customers in kind, in accordance with court-approved disbursements and platform capabilities,” according to a press release from Voyager.
In a sign of how quickly the crypto sector moves, it was only a few months ago that FTX had reportedly won the bidding war against Binance for Voyager’s assets, with the winning bid at the time valued at $1.4 billion.
Since then, of course, Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX empire has crumbled around him, resulting in him being incarcerated in the Bahamas and awaiting extradition to the U.S. where he faces multiple charges of serious financial crimes.
Binance.US President and CEO Brian Shroder elaborated upon the Voyager deal in a Twitter thread:
