Binance.US, the U.S. arm of Binance (BNB-USD), is in the news today after the crypto exchange agreed to acquire digital assets from Voyager Digital (OTCMKTS:VYGVQ).

Let’s go over everything investors need to know about this news below!

Details of the Binance.US-Voyager Deal

  • First off, Binance isn’t the first company to try and buy bankrupt Voyager’s digital assets.
  • FTX was the first to try and acquire these assets, but the auction was restarted after that crypto exchange filed for bankruptcy as well.
  • This has Binance.US stepping up to purchase Voyager’s digital assets for a total of around $1 billion.
  • That’s below the $1.4 billion that FTX was originally planning to pay for the assets.
  • When the purchase is complete, Voyager users will be able to access their digital assets through the Binance.US platform.
  • The details of the deal show Binance is paying a fair market value for Voyager’s assets, as well as an incremental $20 million.
  • Crypto traders watching the deal will note this is much less than what FTX was offering, which Voyager had previously called a “low-ball bid.”
  • It also bears mentioning that Binance wasn’t the only company bidding on the digital assets.
  • CrossTower and others were among those trying to acquire the crypto exchange’s assets.
  • It’s unclear when the bid will close and Binance.US will acquire the digital assets from Voyager.
