Voyager Bankruptcy Puts NWSL Footballers at Risk

The partnership, announced in December last year, was one of the largest in NWSL history and was intended to be a long-term agreement.

It is stated that players in the US National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) will not receive the payments promised in the settlement with Voyager after it went bankrupt.

In the agreement between the two companies; players would receive half of the payment in cash and the other half in crypto. Each athlete would be given a Voyager account to receive deposits and build their own crypto portfolio.

In a press release, NSWL said:

“The player fund is designed to always be distributed in cryptocurrency to accounts on Voyager with the aim of educating players about investing in the crypto space. Therefore, there was always a risk with the volatility of the cryptocurrency market.”
