Genesis Global Holdco LLC, the parent company of the renowned cryptocurrency lender Genesis Global Capital, has recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. This move was prompted by the severe impact of two of the most devastating collapses in the cryptocurrency industry in 2022.
The filing, which Genesis Global Holdco LLC made along with its subsidiaries Genesis Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. and Genesis Global Capital, LLC, involves a trio of voluntary petitions submitted to the bankruptcy court. This action was taken to safeguard the company’s assets and stakeholders while also ensuring a smooth and orderly process for reorganizing its business operations.
It is important to note that Genesis Global Holdco LLC and its subsidiaries fall under the umbrella of Digital Currency Group, a renowned name in the industry that also owns CoinDesk, a leading source of news, analysis, and information for the crypto and blockchain communities.
In its filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, Genesis Global Capital, the partner firm to Gemini’s now-defunct Earn program, has provided a detailed estimate of its financial position.
The filing reveals that the company estimates that it has more than 100,000 creditors, a staggering number highlighting the scale of its operations and reach in the industry.
