Singapore Crypto Lender Hodlnaut Urged to Liquidate by Major Creditors

Neither fresh capital nor “white knight” investors are said to be available to the beleaguered firm. In January, creditors declared their preferences for a general liquidation. Meanwhile, the Algorand Foundation declared last week that $35m of its assets had been locked into Hodlnaut.
