At the end of September, Voyager's assets will go under the hammer. Who are among the main contenders for this jackpot?

  • FTX and Binance are among the most likely buyers of Voyager assets
  • Coinbase assessed the capital of the broker, but refused to participate in the auction
  • The auction will take place at the end of September

Today, 26 August, CoinDesk, citing an anonymous source, said that Coinbase had abandoned the idea of ​​​​buying the assets of a bankrupt crypto lender. This significantly narrows the range of possible participants in the auction.

Recall that Voyager filed for bankruptcy shortly after Three Arrows Capital. At the initial stage of the procedure, the broker refused Alameda Research’s buyout offer.

This led to a flurry of criticism from Sam Bankman-Freed . The head of FTX even noted that he was glad that the deal was canceled, since it had every chance of becoming a failure.

Then, rumors spread that Coinbase appears among possible buyers of Voyager assets. The CoinDesk portal dispelled these doubts. The source of the publication states that the exchange evaluated the “lot”, but refused the offer.

In early August, Voyager lawyers noted that the list registered potential buyers includes 22 large organizations. Among them is Binance.

In an interview with the New York Times, the CEO of the exchange, Changpeng Zhao, said that his team is involved in negotiations to purchase both Voyager and Celsius. But that’s not all.

FTX, whose offer was rejected, doesn’t plan to give up so easily. Despite Bankman-Fried’s alleged refusal to buy Voyager, the source of the publication states that the exchange is on the list of participants in the auction.

Recall that Parties must confirm bids by September 6th. The auction itself will take place 29 September.

Voyager did not disclose the amounts that appeared in offers. But judging by how easily the company turned down the deal for $56 million, we are talking about big money.
