In the previous article, I pointed out why 3AC is in danger of defaulting and may collapse at any time. There is the main issue that we need to be concerned about with the 3AC fund as to who will be affected when 3AC defaults. In this article, I will review the projects affected by and may be affected by the 3AC default.
Projects are severely affected by 3AC.
Three Arrows Captial owes Voyager 15,250 BTC and $350 million in coin (USDC). Voyager also noted that they have already submitted a refund request to 3AC. However, 3AC was unable to pay. On June 27th yesterday. Voyager officially announced Three Arrows Captial default when they were unable to repay the above loan.
The fact that Three Arrows Captial greatly affects this lending platform. However, Voyager also prepared for the worst that could happen. They had previously borrowed 15,000 BTC (about $500M) to cover the losses that 3AC defaulted on.
8 Block Capital
Danny – head of trading of 8Block Capital (a market maker team) shared that they have an agreement with Three Arrows Capital that 8Block Capital will use 3AC’s account and they will pay the service fee.
On June 12, 8Block Capital had a need to withdraw funds to be used on another platform. They contacted 3AC’s operation team but got no response. Not long after, 8Block Capital discovered that the money they deposited had lost 1 million USD (using the same account as 3AC). He immediately contacted Kyle Davis (co-founder of 3AC) but did not get a reply.
One of the lending protocols that suffered the most from the fall of Three Arrows Capital was Aave. Three Arrows Captial has a debt of up to $189M with a collateral value of approximately $220M.
The fact that Three Arrows Capital is in danger of being liquidated on Aave when ETH price reaches $1014. Made Aave users bewildered. The Aave price fell to $48 three days after the Three Arrows Captial news was announced. TVL on Aave also dropped 13.9%.
It is known that Three Arrows Capital on July 14, 2020, 3AC once had a $3M investment in Aave in the token sale. And the amount of tokens paid for this round has been fully unlocked.
Perpetual Protocol is a decentralized exchange (DEX) for futures on Ethereum and xDai. Three Arrows Capital entered PERP’s Strategic and Seed rounds at $0.08. Currently, the majority of tokens have been unlocked for 3AC and continue to be unlocked on a monthly basis.
Perpetual’s price also dropped 16.9% when the news that 3Ac was about to default was announced.
Projects that may be affected by the 3AC collapse.
A blockchain with NEAR Protocol is incredibly quick, incredibly safe, and indefinitely scalable. Out of a total of 1 billion tokens, 230 million were sold during near’s initial funding rounds from March 2017 to 2020, with prices ranging from $0.0375 to $0.32 per token. No unit, and very few individuals, including Three Arrows Captial, have more than 3.5 percent of the initial supply, according to Near. The lock-in term for early sellers ranges from 12 to 36 months from the public sale date, with the majority being 24 months. This indicates that until October 2022, these tokens will be frozen. NEAR won’t be impacted by 3AC because it only holds a small portion of the market and is currently locked.
As far as I know, Kusama has a total supply of 10,000,000 tokens and 100% of these tokens will be distributed to Polkadot (DOT) holders and validators in the staking network. Since 3AC is also one of the funds that invest in DOT, they will also receive a reward of KSM. But currently, the circulating supply of KSM is 8,470,098 KSM, which is more than 80% of the total supply of KSM, so unlocking KSM and selling it on the market will also be very difficult to affect the price of KSM.
According to its description, the dHedge project focuses on anonymous trading for digital assets on Ethereum. 3AC took part in DHT’s strategic and seed rounds for an unknown sum and will be compensated over a three-year period with 2% inflation.
A liquidity network called WOO Network provides institutions, DeFi platforms, exchanges, and traders with democratized access to good liquidity at cheap or no cost.
Out of a total of 3 billion tokens, 540 million were sold in the initial rounds of WOO, which sold for $0.01 to $0.02. Up until May 2022, these tokens will be frozen and paid on a monthly basis.
Above is information about 3AC-related projects and investment funds, here I only list large projects and directly affected funds. In addition, fully unlocked investments, or additional investments purchased after the project’s public sale will not be listed. According to dune analysis, the remaining amount in 3AC wallets is about $178M.
