The Scramble for Voyager’s Assets

Ever since Voyager Digital filed for bankruptcy in July 2022, numerous companies expressed their interest in its assets. The most prominent hopeful buyers were Binance, Coinbase, and FTX, although Coinbase dropped out fairly early in the race.

In late August, after it was revealed that there were at least 11 competitors in the auction to buy the bankrupt company’s assets, its native token VGX saw a dramatic spike in value. The hearing on the bid, initially scheduled for September, recently got pushed to October 19th.

At the time of writing, FTX and Binance are the two firms in the lead to buy Voyager. Both companies offered around $50 million and Binance is allegedly in a slight lead.
