Binance and FTX make bids to buy Voyager Digital as Coinbase pulls out of deal

Until now, U.S. exchange Coinbase was the frontrunner in the race to buy the assets of bankrupt crypto-currency lender Voyager Digital.

However, after evaluating the deal and how it compares to its interests, Coinbase pulled out of the deal. But sources say the troubled lender is also attracting some of the biggest names in the crypto space. Crypto-currency exchanges like Binance and FTX are also reportedly interested in Voyager Digital.

All bids for Voyager’s assets are due on September 6. But the final sale will be through an auction process scheduled for later on September 29.

It might also be worth mentioning that, according to a presentation by the company’s lawyers in early August, at least 22 other investors have expressed interest in buying Voyager’s assets. But it certainly gets more interesting with companies like Binance and FTX in the mix. That’s evident from the recent spike in VGX’s price.

For FTX, the exchange made a public offer in July. Voyager’s lawyers have criticized the terms of that offer. Yet sources familiar with the matter maintain that FTX remains in the running, and would do anything to secure Voyager’s assets.
