Genesis Global Capital Prepares to File for Bankruptcy

From the Desk of Jim Eccleston at Eccleston Law.

Genesis Global Capital is preparing to file for bankruptcy as soon as this week, according to sources interviewed by Bloomberg News.

Genesis, which is the cryptocurrency lending unit of Digital Currency Group, has participated in confidential negotiations with several creditor groups amidst a liquidity crisis. Bloomberg previously reported that Genesis had warned that it may pursue bankruptcy if the business fails to raise sufficient funds.

Digital Currency Group initially began to face financial pressure after the collapse of hedge fund Three Arrows Capital. Genesis additionally suspended withdrawals last November after FTX, which held certain funds for Genesis, filed for bankruptcy protection. Genesis, Digital Currency Group and various creditor groups have exchanged numerous proposals, but the parties have yet to come to an agreement. However, negotiations are ongoing and plans may change, according to sources.
