Bankrupt cryptocurrency hedge fund Three Arrows Capital has appeared in the crosshairs of U.S. regulators, according to a report by Bloomberg.
The hedge fund, which was one of the most influential players on the cryptocurrency scene, imploded earlier this year.
U.S. regulators are reportedly investigating whether 3AC lied to its investors about its financial health.
The report, which cites anonymous individuals familiar with the probe, says that the hedge fund’s founders, Su Zhu and Kyle Davies, could potentially face different kinds of penalties.
As reported by U.Today, a court based in the British Virgin Islands ordered the liquidation of the hedge fund back in June. The embattled hedge fund ended up filing for bankruptcy in early July.
Davis and Zhu reportedly stole borrowed funds in order to buy a yacht.
As reported by U.Today, Zhu claimed that he could fail could face imprisonment in an affidavit that he delivered in person in Thailand in September. He claimed that the court-appointed liquidators were providing inaccurate information.
In late June, the hedge fund was accused of providing false information by Singaporean regulators.
The whereabouts of the founders of the beleaguered hedge fund remain unknown for now.
