On Wednesday crypto exchange giant coinbase said that it had no financial exposure to crypto firms Celsius Network, Voyager Digital or Three Arrows capital –all which were declared bankrupt this month.
In a blog, the company said, “Coinbase had no financing exposure to the group above.We have not engaged in these types of risky lending practices and instead have focused on building our financing business with prudence and deliberate focus on the client.
One of the coinbase post said that
“We believe these market participants were caught up in the frenzy of a crypto bull market and forgot the basics of risk management . “ Hedge bets,huge investment in the Terra ecosystem and massive leverage provided to and deployed by 3ac meant that risk was too high and too concentrated. These events are Unfortunately more common in the traditional financial market than we would hope.”
There has also been news that the coinbase is allegedly shutting down its U.S affiliate marketing program . There were also several reports that the exchange is also facing its own liquidity crisis.
