Last July, Voyager was forced to shut down customer deposits and withdrawals after beleaguered crypto firm Three Arrows Capital defaulted on a loan worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
Voyager eventually filed for bankruptcy and reached an agreement to sell $1.3 billion in assets and transfer its clients to Binance.US, though the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) opposed the deal, arguing that the deal could violate securities law.
New York Judge Michael Wiles sided with Voyager and approved the settlement, though the US Department of Justice (DOJ) is appealing his decision.
As of the end of February, Voyager’s had $631 million worth of cryptocurrency in its reserves, including $81 million in SHIB, according to blockchain tracking firm Lookonchain.
SHIB is trading at $0.00001 at the time of writing. The 14th-ranked crypto asset by market capitalization is down 7.8% over the past 24 hours.
