Genesis declared bankruptcy, what's next in 2023? 2022 Era of crypto bankruptcies

2022 was the worst year for crypto after the Luna meltdown. Every company that had exposure to Luna stablecoin went bankrupt, and in November, famous companies went bankrupt, which caused DCG’s parent company, Genesis Global Trading, to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Genesis Bankruptcy

Back in November 2022, Genesis was in trouble immediately after FTX collapsed. They had $175 million stuck on FTX and that Company was looking for a $1 billion liquidity injection to keep the company afloat.

Genesis also made large loans to Three Arrows Capital, which is now bankrupt. They loaned $2.3 billion to 3AC despite warnings about its liquidity. Ultimately, the loss was $1.2 billion when the fund collapsed last year.

Today, Genesis Global filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, owing more than $3.5 billion to its more than 100,000 creditors. Gemini Crypto Exchange is the largest creditor, as expected, with an unsecured claim of $765.9 million.

The firm published a list of its top 50 creditors, which include such names as Gemini, Cumberland, Mirana, MoonAlpha Finance, and others. As per the document, Genesis Global owes over $3.5 billion to the creditors on that list.

In this thread, Winklevoss threatened to sue DCG CEO Barry Silbert over the repayment of the loan.
