June 23 (Reuters) - Crypto broker Voyager Digital Ltd has lowered its daily withdrawal limits to $10,000 from $25,000, according to an update on the company's website.
The change comes after the company on Wednesday said its subsidiary may issue a default notice to Three Arrows Capital Ltd if the cryptocurrency hedge fund fails to repay its loan.

The New Jersey-based company said it had initially asked for repayment of $25 million USDC by June 24, and later requested that the entire amount be repaid by June 27. However, neither of those have been repaid, Voyager said.
