Cash Cloud, a Bitcoin ATM operator, files for bankruptcy in Nevada
Cash Cloud, the company that runs Coin Cloud digital currency ATMs in Brazil and the United States, has filed for Chapter 11 “reorganization” bankruptcy in the United States Bankruptcy Court in the District of Nevada.
Genesis Global Trading granted a $100m unsecured loan to Coin Cloud
In a document submitted on Feb. 7 to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the District of Nevada, the Las Vegas-based company has assets between $50 and $100m, and up to 10,000 creditors.
Genesis Global Capital, a division of the insolvent lending division of Digital Currency Group, is Cash Cloud’s largest creditor. Its unsecured claim against Genesis is worth over $108m, significantly exceeding the next-largest claimant, who is due over $8m.
Bloomberg stated on Nov. 22 that Coin Cloud had obtained an unsecured loan from Genesis of roughly $100m and was in discussions with Genesis seeking “extra money” to assist it in restructuring a debt of about $125m, citing anonymous sources.
It is unclear whether Coin Cloud received further credit from Genesis at that time, given it was already struggling financially.
