Orthogonal Trading receives default notice:
Meanwhile, in what is seen as a big blow to undercollateralized lending protocols, Blockchain-based lending platform Maple Finance has reportedly severed ties with crypto firm Orthogonal Trading over allegations that it was “misrepresenting its financial position.”
A default by Orthogonal comes at a time when undercollateralized lending protocols grapple with a liquidity crunch and the fallout from FTX’s implosion.
The move came after Orthogonal was due to repay a $10M USDC stablecoin loan from a credit pool managed by M11 Credit on December 4.
It is to be noted that Orthogonal’s lapse is the second time a borrower defaulted on Maple after Babel Finance failed to service its debt in June.
