As a tokenized VC entering the NFT sector, Three Arrows Capital used its own funds to purchase many popular NFTs. With the bankruptcy and liquidation of Three Arrows Capital, the NFT held by it was taken over by Teneo, the liquidator in charge of the institution’s bankruptcy proceedings, last year and announced on February 22 of this year that they would sell some of their NFT assets. Teneo chose Sotheby’s for auction because the platform maximizes the value of these assets on behalf of all creditors.
On April 20, auction house Sotheby’s officially announced that it would be kicking off the auction of its digital collection “GRAILS: Assets from the Iconic Digital Art Collection” on April 20. May 19. This portion of the NFT came from the bankrupt crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, and the assets held by the NFT fund Starry Night Capital are not covered by this liquidation.
