The Algorand Foundation has filed a claim against Three Arrows Capital (3AC)

Tweet from a 3AC creditor:

Context from Algorand:

"Last September, the Algorand Foundation entered a one-off OTC trade with 3AC. We have reason to believe 3AC violated the associated lockup terms and as such are seeking remuneration per the terms of the agreement. The Algorand Foundation never provided 3AC with unsecured loans or a line of credit."

Top comment from r/AlgorandOfficial summing it up

  • Foundation sold algos to 3ac at a discount to the market price. In return the algos were to be locked up, probably for 2 years.

  • Foundation has already received the money.

  • Foundation is claiming 3ac did not hodl the algos and smashed the market with them (probably because they needed funds desperately when they were getting liquidated everywhere, and the algos weren't hard-locked by smart contract) and are claiming damages."

This is possibly one of the reasons why the price of ALGO has been getting obliterated (in addition to the greater macro environment etc.).

If only they had a coin that could do smart contracts like that

And with smartcontracts, they could have opened up the lockup opportunity to everyone, not just some jackals.

Also, Algo is an entirely public chain, no?

They can’t even really hide the fact they’re selling when everyone at the Algo foundation can see tokens going from the HODL wallet to some exchange

I don't know they may have actually trusted such a big Crypto hedge fund with that. In higher levels of business there is not much safety as they all think they are Invincible.

Why did the foundation not lock those funds with a smart contract?

That is the entire reason of existence of smart contracts.

They are also guilty.
