Voyager Digital served a notice of default on Three Arrows on Monday, spelling more woes for the cryptocurrency hedge fund operator.

Voyager, a crypto lender, intends to pursue recovery of $650m (£529.57m) from Three Arrows, including 15,250 bitcoins (BTC) and $350m in the USDC cryptocurrency. The clock was ticking on Three Arrows, also known as 3AC, to make payment after Voyager demanded repayment of $25m by last Friday, 24 June, and the total balance by Monday.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
