Three Arrows Capital, the beleaguered crypto hedge fund, has been ordered into liquidation by a court in the British Virgin Islands, Sky News first reported.

  • Teneo, an advisory firm, has been appointed to handle the liquidation, a source with knowledge of the matter confirms to Axios.

Why it matters: Being ordered into liquidation will put a more standard process in place for Three Arrows and its creditors at a time when some of the fund's lenders appear confused and say they have had little communication from the investor.

  • This also means Teneo is now in control of 3AC's assets, rather than founders Kyle Davies and Su Zhu.

Details: Teneo is taking stock of what 3AC actually owns and is expected to collect information on 3AC's creditors and debtors via a website in coming days, the source says.

  • Known creditors include Voyager Digital, a company that has said it is owed about $674 million.
  • Three Arrows' fund is incorporated in the British Virgin Islands.

Of note: The liquidation process is in its early stages, meaning the creditors are probably in for a long haul.

  • 3AC has not yet responded to a request for comment.
