Justin Sun’s Intrest in Credit Suisse

Tron’s founder Justin Sun tweeted a proposal to acquire the Credit Suisse Bank for $1.5 billion on Sunday. He mentioned that in case UBS failed to obtain the bid for the Bank, he would like to bring his proposal to buy the bank and integrate the bank into the Web3 world. He highlighted that Switzerland is one of the most cryptocurrency-friendly countries in the world. 

Justin Sun stated,

“My vision for the future of finance involves the embarrassing potential of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. By integrating Credit Suisse into the crypto-friendly financial institution, we can pave the way for a more innovative and decentralized financial system.”

UBS’s bid offer for the Credit Suisse Bank is way lower than the bank’s stocks on Friday. Switzerland considered nationalizing the bank. However, in the end, UBS acquired the bank for $3 billion. After the bid, $17 billion in AT1 bonds are now worthless. That means the AT1 bondholders appear to be left with nothing, while shareholders will receive the $3.23 billion under the UBS agreement deal. This can have a huge negative impact on Europe and the US bond market.
