Three Arrows Capital Completes GTX Seed Funding, Says Arthur Hayes
BitMEX founder Arthur Hayes in a tweet on February 4 said his sources have informed him about Three Arrows Capital and CoinFLEX completing a seed funding round for GTX. He asserts it must be the start of a bull market if they raised the target seed funding of $25 million.
“Must be the beginnings of a bull market if these muppets get money less than one year after they torched $18 billion on shitcoins. I ain’t mad at ya, but homeboy needs his money back lift tickets be expensive.”
Three Arrows Capital’s founders Kyle Davies and Zhu Su and CoinFLEX’s founders Mark Lamb and Sudhu Arumugam expect to launch the crypto exchange GTX by February. CoinFLEX earlier clarify misconceptions about the leaked materials concerning the proposed ‘GTX’ exchange. CoinFLEX claims GTX is a placeholder name for now.
The crypto community started comparing GTX with the bankrupt crypto exchange FTX, founded by Sam Bankman-Fried. Interestingly, GTX will also allow impacted crypto investors to liquidate their holdings immediately by selling their claims at significantly discounted rates. Moreover, it aims to expand into regulated markets such as the stock market.
