Creditors of Genesis
The largest creditors of Genesis include Gemini with $765 million, Bybit’s Mirana with almost $152 million, Babel Finance with $150 million, Coincident Capital with $112 million alongside 50 other large unsecured claims.
Samuel Bankman-Fried’s FTX exchange collapse claimed several victims since November. Crypto lender BlockFi and one of the biggest publicly traded crypto mining companies in the US, Core Scientific Inc, both filed for bankruptcy protection in the following months.
Genesis and its parent company DCG and its creditors have exchanged several proposals, but failed to come to an agreement. The crypto lender’s collapse made a dent in the crypto ecosystem with the large debt it owes to its creditors. Ran Neuner, CNBC Crypto Trader believes that the Genesis bankruptcy has been priced in since November.
