Bhutan's national investment arm, Druk Holding & Investments, has been revealed to have secretly invested millions of dollars in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies through insolvent crypto lenders BlockFi and Celsius, according to court records. Druk had withdrawn over $65 million and deposited approximately $18 million in digital assets over the course of three months covered by the Celsius filing. BlockFi has accused Druk of failing to return a $30 million loan, even after the lender liquidated collateral of 1,888 Bitcoin. If confirmed, this would be an unusual move for Druk, which is supposed to encourage domestic business projects. In 2021, Bhutan's central bank, the Royal Monetary Authority, collaborated with Ripple on a pilot project for a CBDC solution.
