According to a court document filed recently in the Voyager Digital bankruptcy case, les Etats Unis. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is investigating the marketing of the crypto firm.

FTC’s Objection to Voyager’s Proposed Sale Plan Could Impact Bankruptcy

In a filing in bankruptcy court registered on Feb. 22, 2023, les Etats Unis. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) detailed that it is investigating the marketing schemes of the crypto firm Voyager Digital. “The FTC has commenced an investigation into certain acts and practices of [Voyager] et [les] debtors’ employees, directors, and officers, for their deceptive and unfair marketing of cryptocurrency to the public,” the complaint explains.

The FTC filing says the proposed sale of the debtor’s assets would interfere with the current probe, which could essentially discharge Voyager and specific staff members from alleged “fraud-related debts held by a governmental unit.” The FTC is not the only government agency investigating Voyager. Texas’s securities regulator and attorney general objected to FTX purchasing Voyager prior to FTX’s collapse.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SECONDE) objected to the proposed acquisition by Binance US. Despite the objection, Voyager received court approval to proceed with the sale. Voyager’s legal representation, Allyson Smith of Kirkland & Ellis, told the court the sale is “on track” to proceed. “We are on track and don’t anticipate any obstacles,” Voyager’s lawyer stressed. toutefois, the latest filing by the FTC insists that the debtors are “not entitled to a discharge here.”

“Further, even if debtors were entitled to a discharge (through operation of consensual releases, par exemple), the code specifically precludes the discharge of fraud-related debts held by a governmental unit,” the FTC’s objection concludes. “Wherefore, for the foregoing reasons, the FTC respectfully requests the court deny confirmation of the debtors’ proposed plan; strike Section VIII.B and D of the proposed plan; or grant any other relief the Court deems just and proper.”
