SafeMoon has officially declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy in the state of Utah.

According to the official filing from Thursday, the now-defunct crypto project is currently focused on liquidating its cryptocurrencies and other ‘intangible’ assets to repay creditors.

ProCoin News previously reported that the SafeMoon founders had been arrested by U.S. authorities due to ongoing litigation from the SEC, IRS, and the DOJ.

The SafeMoon founders were charged with allegedly operating a multi-million dollar digital fraud scheme.

Indeed, the project has been wrought with allegations of fraud and malfeasance from concerned investors and regulatory officials for years now. Here’s the latest:

Blockworks provided more details on the bankruptcy filing:

The assets are expected to be worth $10 to $50 million, with anywhere from $100,000 to $500,000 in estimated liabilities. It listed roughly 50 to 99 creditors in the filing.

Crypto Potato reminded readers of these facts and presented some of the latest headlines regarding SafeMoon:

“SafeMoon declared Chapter 7 bankruptcy amidst exec arrests & SEC charges! Filed in Utah court following SEC’s fraud allegations & unregistered crypto offering. Execs accused of misappropriating funds, as $SFM token value drops over 40% in the last 24h.”

SafeMoon has lost roughly 50% or more of its value since November, but remained relatively stable until recently.

The New York Post claimed:

“As alleged, the defendants deliberately misled investors and diverted millions of dollars to fuel their greedy scheme and enrich themselves by purchasing a custom Porsche sports car, other luxury vehicles and real estate,” US Attorney Breon Peace said.
