Crypto Lender Genesis Chapter 11 Bankruptcy – Bitcoin Magazine

[ad_1]

Genesis’s two lending subsidiaries, Genesis Global Capital and Genesis Asia Pacific, have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

According to the announcement, the firm aims to enact “a global resolution to maximize value for all clients and stakeholders and strengthen its business for the future.”

In November 2022, Genesis Global Capital halted their operations, freezing withdrawals amidst a liquidity crisis that came as a result of the implosion of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange. The lending arm was FTX’s largest unsecured lender, with claims amounting to more than $226 million.

Bitcoin Magazine PRO described how the firm needed a liquidity injection of at least $1 billion dollars in order to save itself — but this did not happen. In January 2023, Genesis’ parent company, Digital Currency Group, was accused by Gemini President Cameron Winklevoss of using Genesis in an elaborate high-yield scheme which transferred the high-risk of these yield generating investments to Gemini’s Earn product users. Gemini Earn was earning this yield via Genesis, which, according to the statements made by Winklevoss, Gemini believed to be a reputable counterparty.

“Genesis has proposed a roadmap to an exit including a Chapter 11 plan that calls for a framework for a global resolution of all claims through, and the creation of, a trust that will distribute assets to creditors,” the filing describes. “All aspects of the restructuring process will be overseen by an independent special committee of the company’s board of directors.”
