美国破产法官否决了加密贷款公司的客户提出的冻结该公司在交易所持有的加密资产的紧急 ...

美国破产法官多尔西(John Dorsey)否决了加密贷款公司Cred Inc. 15名客户提出的冻结该公司在交易所持有的加密资产的紧急请求。该公司目前处于破产程序第11章。


11月23日,十多家Cred债权人提交了紧急动议,试图迫使21家加密货币交易所冻结Cred在各自平台上持有的资产,其中包括五家美国交易所。


在11月25日的听证会上,多尔西声称,在没有有关加密资产的地位和所有权的证据的情况下,他不能对该动议采取行动,并指责投资者明显缺乏追踪这些资产的努力:


“在这一点上,我所拥有的是债务人履行其受托责任,保护遗产资产的义务[…我所能做的就是劝诫债务人。”

然而,法官指出,有关冻结Cred资产的问题可能会在12月9日的听证会上讨论。12月9日的听证会是针对11月18日两位Cred用户提出的要求将案件转为清算程序的动议。


11月18日的诉状指控Cred运营一家“未经许可的对冲基金……据估计,Cred的流动资产仅相当于其1.365亿美元负债的10%。


Cred于11月7日申请破产,该公司称此举是为了“最大化其平台对债权人的价值”。


11月8日,该公司联合创始人兼首席执行官丹尼尔·夏特(Daniel Schatt)发表声明称,Cred前首席资本官詹姆斯·亚历山大(James Alexander)于今年7月携用户价值300万美元的比特币潜逃。沙特还表示,公司雇佣了一名冒名顶替者,从公司偷走了800枚比特币,价值超过1000万美元。


在宣布暂时停止运营不到两周后,通用申请了破产保护。

 

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge John Dorsey has denied an emergency motion filed by 15 customers of the embattled crypto lending firm Cred Inc. to freeze crypto assets held by the firm on exchanges amid its Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.

More than one dozen of Cred’s creditors filed the emergency motion on Nov. 23, seeking to compel 21 cryptocurrency exchanges to freeze assets held by Cred on their respective platforms, including five U.S.-based exchanges.

During a Nov. 25 hearing, Dorsey asserted that he could not act on the motion without evidence surrounding the status and ownership of the crypto assets in question, and scolded the investors for their apparent lack of effort put towards tracking down the assets:

"At this point, all I have is the obligation of the debtors to exercise their fiduciary duty to protect the assets of the estate [...] all I can do is admonish the debtors.”

However, the judge noted that issues concerning the freezing of Cred’s assets are likely to be deliberated during the Dec. 9 hearing regarding a Nov. 18 motion from two Cred users requesting the case be converted to liquidation proceedings.

The Nov. 18 filing accuses Cred of operating an “unlicensed hedge fund [...] rife with fraud and deception on ‘Madoff’ level proportions,” estimating that Cred’s liquid assets are equal to just 10% of its $136.5 million in liabilities.

Cred filed for bankruptcy on Nov. 7, with Cred describing the move as an attempt “to maximize the value of its platform for its creditors.”

A Nov. 8 declaration from its co-founder and CEO Daniel Schatt claimed that Cred’s former chief capital officer, James Alexander, had absconded with $3 million in Bitcoin belonging to its users in July of this year. Schatt also said that 800 Bitcoin worth more than $10 million had been stolen from the company by an imposter hired by its debtors.

The bankruptcy filing came less than two weeks after announcing a temporary suspension of operations.
