The founders of Singapore-based crypto lenderproposed selling the business as a better option for creditors than liquidating the embattled firm.
said in an affidavit seen by Bloomberg News that he and Hodlnaut’s other co-founder have reached out to a number of “potential white knight investors.”
Lee stated that the co-founders believe that "the Hodlnaut user base can be acquired and embedded on the platforms of digital assets held or affiliated with these investors." He claimed that this would "maximise" the value to creditors.
The company did not immediately reply to an email requesting feedback on the Co-Founder proposal.
Hodlnaut, also based in Hong Kong, stopped withdrawals in August and was granted creditor protection. It has been one of a number of crypto lenders around the globe that has had problems in last year's digital-asset rout.
