DeFi Lending Platform TrueFi Announces First Default on BUSD Loan

Earlier today, October 10, decentralized finance (DeFi) lending platform TrueFi issued a notice of default to Blockwater Technologies on missing a scheduled payment over its $3.4 million BUSD loan. Over the last week, the TrueFi credit group was trying to work out an out-of-court settlement. This included increasing the borrowing rate and extending maturity.

However, they found out that a court-supervised administrative proceeding could lead to a better outcome for stakeholders. This is TrueFi’s first and only declared credit default to date. The credit group said that it continues to remain vigilant as well as proactive in current macro conditions.

Lending platforms have been facing the heat of the crypto market meltdown this year. Massive withdrawals in Q2 have led to the collapse of giants like Celsius Networks and Voyager Digital.

TrueFi said that it will continue to remain in active discussions with the associates of Blockwater Technologies. The focus will be on maximizing recovery for the stakeholders and lenders. The official announcement from TrueFi notes:

Blockwater has completed 8 payments totalling $645,405 towards loan repayment. $2,967,458 remains due at the time of the default. The Blockwater default does not affect lenders in TrueFi’s USDC, TUSD, USDT stablecoin lending pools, nor any of TrueFi’s capital market portfolios.
