The move of Starry Night Capital's NFTs to a Gnosis Safe wallet was made by Teneo, the liquidator for crypto hedge fund Three Arrows Capital, in order to take control of the digital assets, a filing from Teneo on Wednesday confirmed.

  • Three Arrows Capital filed for bankruptcy in July, citing "extreme fluctuations" in the cryptocurrency markets. As part of the bankruptcy proceedings Teneo working to recover all of Three Arrows' assets, including the collection of non-fungible tokens.
  • "Thanks to the cooperation of VincentVanDough, all Starry Night Capital NFTs, of which VVD is aware, have been accounted for and are in our possession or are being transferred to us," Teneo wrote in the filing.
  • Vincent Van Dough is a pseudonymous NFT collector who was hired by Three Arrows Capital in August 2021 to run its Starry Night Capital NFT fund.
  • It's estimated that Three Arrows Capital spent $21 million building the collection at the height of the NFT frenzy in 2021.
  • Teneo also said that Van Dough will be assisting it in the eventual sale of the NFTs.

  • Analytics company Nansen estimates the portfolio is worth 625 ether, or about $840,000.
