According to reports, Wyre, a crypto payment firm that came close to being acquired for $1.5 billion last year, is on the brink of liquidation.

In operation since 2013, Wyre agreed to a $1.5 billion sale to online checkout company Bolt in April last year. During the tech stock bonfire, the deal was abandoned in September, which saw Bolt lay off a third of its staff.

Two former personnel of Wyre confirmed the looming shutdown in a conversation with Axios. One of them said that Wyre CEO Ioannis Giannaros emailed over the holiday session about a planned liquidation and dissolution of operations in January 2023.

Another employee went public about the company’s fate on LinkedIn: The shutdown has not been officially confirmed. Wyre chief Giannaros told Axios: “We’re still operating but will be scaling back to plan our next steps.”
