Troubled cryptocurrency lending platform Vauld has been given a brief reprieve from creditors after the Singapore High Court granted it a three-month moratorium on Monday.

According to a Bloomberg article, Justice Aedit Abdullah reportedly rejected Vauld’s parent business Defi Payment Limited’s original request for a six-month embargo. This, because of fears that a longer moratorium “won’t obtain enough oversight and monitoring.”

The moratorium would shield Defi Payments from wind-up resolutions, the designation of a receiver or manager, and any legal actions that might be taken against the business. This will include those actions that might be brought by its 147,000 creditors.

Court orders Vauld to share information

The court ruled that Vauld must give its creditors information about its cash flows and asset valuation. The judge ruled that this must be finished in two weeks and that the management of its accounts must follow in eight. To solve these difficulties, he also requested that the business set up a creditors committee.

The moratorium, according to Vauld’s amended website FAQ on Monday, would provide the company breathing room to develop a restructuring plan. The company added,

“The moratorium is an important procedure to provide the company with the breathing room necessary for it to formulate and consider its options carefully.”

While the ban is in place, Vauld plans to develop a restructuring strategy and look into possibilities to revitalize the business.

A comprehensive Explanatory Statement detailing estimated recovery and repayment options will be given to creditors by the company.

A lot of work ahead

Despite the company’s optimism, Co-founder and Managing Partner Antoni Trenchev said,

“We have to understand the liabilities, the receivables, who the counterparties are, and what are the prospects of getting those receivables.”

Here, it’s worth noting that once upon a time, Vauld was promising profits of 13%. Leveraged borrowing and overextended positions were the results, and they all collapsed in May along with the Terra stablecoin ecosystem.
