Earlier this year, the crypto ATM operator filed for bankruptcy. On February 8, Coin Cloud announced that it would file for Chapter 11 reorganization in the US bankruptcy court. According to Chris McAlary, the company’s CEO and president, the decision will allow the debt to be reorganized and protect the interests of creditors. A document filed on February 7 showed that the company had liabilities of between $100 million and $500 million, while its assets were only between $50 million and $100 million.
