Nodal, the blockchain startup which AltFi revealed had repeatedly failed to pay contracted staff and agency workers in September, has fallen into administration.

Insolvency specialists at CVR Global were appointed by Nodal on 17 October, according to Companies House, with a team led by CVR partner Bai Cham.

AltFi previously reported that Nodal’s senior team had attempted to wrest control of the company away from CEO Oliver Hibbs-Brockway, however this was unsuccessful.

At the time Nodal told AltFi it had “never missed a payment run”, while several former employees confirmed AltFi’s reporting on Twitter.

On 30 September, in an email seen by AltFi, Brockway wrote to all Nodal’s remaining full-time staff to inform them that “unfortunately the Company is unable, at this stage, to make payment to you”.
