BlackRock and Apollo Capital Management were among the group of creditors that loaned $500 million to defunct crypto miner Core Scientific, court filings show.

Core Scientific, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, grew its business by raising massive debt and faltered on the loans when Bitcoin (BTC) prices sunk last year.

BlackRock purchased $38.2 million convertible notes from Core Scientific in August 2021. Apollo, on the other hand, purchased $22.5 million worth of convertible notes in April 2021, and another $10.9 million in August 2021, as per the filings.

The largest creditor was Ibex Investors, which bought $97.9 million worth of convertible notes from Core Scientific in April 2021. The same month, the miner used convertible notes to raise $61.7 million and $37.6 million from ICG Advisors and Kensico Capital Management, respectively.

In August, the miner bagged another $4.3 million from Kensico, $23.5 million from Marsico, and $43.6 million from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MMLIC). The same month, the miner sold convertible shares worth $28.9 million, $31.1 million, and $2.7 million to Toroso Investments, Jordan Park Group, and Sabby Volatility Warrant Master Fund, respectively.

Core Scientific also raised $15.29 million through convertible notes from Corbin Capital Partners, the filings show.

Many of these creditors also extended debtor-in-possession (DIP) loans to Core Scientific, which allowed the miner to continue operating during bankruptcy.

Ibex, BlackRock, and Apollo provided $10.1 million, $17 million, and $6.1 million, respectively, in DIP loans to the defunct miner. MMLIC, Sabby, Jordan, and Corbin cumulatively extended another $24 million in DIP loans, the filings show.

Three Arrows Capital (3AC) liquidators alleged that 3AC co-founder  Kyle Davis has openly ignored the court’s subpoena order, however, a motion was filed to extend the deadline till March 16.

3AC liquidators had filed a subpoena against Davis openly via Twitter on Jan. 5. The court order mandated the 3AC co-founder to provide all documents that revealed all financial information about his bankrupt hedge fund before Jan. 26.

3AC liquidators said in a Jan. 7 court filing that Davis has intentionally refused to comply with the order despite maintaining an active presence on Twitter.

“He (Davis) is, without question, aware of the Subpoena-having been tagged in 41 replies and 64 retweets-and has, once again, chosen to ignore his duties to Three Arrows.”

In addition, Davis and his alley Shu Zhu were reportedly involved in a $25 million fundraising effort for their new crypto exchange-GTX.

Consequently, the 3AC liquidators have asked the US bankruptcy court to extend the subpoena deadline till March 16, to enable Davis fully turn in all required documents of the bankrupt hedge fund.

Leading asset management firm Digital Currency Group (DCG) has reportedly sold some of its shares in Grayscale crypto trusts — raising roughly $22 million, according to the Financial Times (FT).

DCG has been caught up in a series of financial crises following the bankruptcy of its trading arm-Genesis. The firm reportedly owes over $3 billion to its creditors, including about $900 million to Gemini Earn users.

DCG set to continue offloading assets

To raise more funds to support its bankrupt subsidiary, DCG has reportedly moved to sell some assets in its $500 million portfolio — including its news outlet CoinDesk.

DCG has also submitted filings to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), revealing its deals to sell some of its shares in Grayscale, FT reported on Feb. 7.

DCG started selling its shares in Grayscale on Jan. 24, with a focus on the Ethereum Fund, according to the report. DCG sold the Grayscale Ethereum shares at $8 per share — raising approximately $22 million. The share price has declined by over 50% from its initial claim of $16 per ETH.

DCG also sold some smaller shares in its Litecoin Trust, Bitcoin Cash Trust, Ethereum Classic Trust, and Digital Large Cap Fund.

Cameron Winklevoss, the Co-Founder of Gemini, announced that the company has come to an “agreement in principle” with Genesis late on Feb. 6.

Gemini has made several strong claims against Genesis on behalf of Gemini Earn customers, arguing that Genesis owed customers over $1 billion.

Investors were feared to be at risk of losing $485 million through Genesis’ bankruptcy procedures. However, Cameron confirmed that a “plan that provides a path for Earn users to recover their assets” had been agreed upon in court.

Winklevoss also disclosed that Gemini would contribute $100 million as a part of the plan.

“This plan is a critical step forward towards a substantial recovery of assets for all Genesis creditors.

Gemini will be contributing up to $100 million more for Earn users as part of the plan, further demonstrating Gemini’s continued commitment to helping Earn users achieve a full recovery.”

The Gemini Co-Founder stated that while there is “still much work to be done,” he is confident the issue is moving in the right direction.

 “We are confident that we now have a framework in place to execute on.”

No information has yet been revealed as to whether Earn customers will receive funds on a 1:1 basis or at a discounted rate. However, Reuters confirmed that “Digital Currency Group… reached an agreement in principle on a restructuring plan with a group of creditors,” citing DCG subsidiary CoinDesk. Cameron’s announcement, therefore, aligns with the news released by DCG.

Future updates on the Gemini Earn fund recovery status can be found on the Gemini website.
