Genesis Global Cryptocurrency Lender Halts Withdrawals

According to a new Tweet From Genesis Global on Nov. 16, the institutional cryptocurrency lender says it will “temporarily suspend repayments and new loan originations.”

Explaining the decision, the firm cited “unprecedented market turmoil” related to the collapse of troubled cryptocurrency exchange FTX. Resulting in “abnormal” levels of withdrawals that Genesis Global claims exceed its current liquidity.

The company also added that its current liquidity was negatively affected by the collapse of hedge fund Three Arrows Capital in June. As part of bankruptcy proceedings, the company has filed a $1.2 billion claim against Three Arrows Capital.

Although it is unclear what the firm’s liquidity levels are, Genesis Global had $175 million worth of funds tied up in FTX. In response, Digital Currency Group, the parent company of Genesis Global, sent its subsidiary an emergency capital injection of $140 million to cover losses.

Tether refuses to have exposure to Genesis

After Genesis Global Capital ceased withdrawals for FTX exposure, Tether clarified that it has “absolutely no exposure to Genesis or Gemeni Earn.” Likewise, he recalled that Tether tokens are backed 100% by its reserves and that the assets that support them exceed the liabilities.

Previously, Tether denied having any exposure to FTX, Alameda, or the exchange’s token, FTT. Paolo Ardoino, CTO of Bitfinex and Tether, quickly silenced the possible FUD that could be created from this open accusation, clarifying that his exposure “was null.”

Tether stated that it operates “business as usual” on a daily basis and that it is true to its “customers first” philosophy.
