Alameda Research raises $377M from Voyager Digital

Alameda Research, associated with Sam Bankman-Freed, was the second borrower in terms of funds raised ($376.8 million) from Voyager Digital after Three Arrows Capital. Such information is contained in the bankruptcy announcement of the crypto broker.

The outstanding balance includes a $75 million unsecured loan, the largest on the list.

A crypto broker can rely on these funds for settlements with creditors.
