This was going to be a short and quick post about a rapidly moving train wreck. It started as an Urgent Update to Clients as a final reminder to get their crypto off those centralised exchanges.

Genesis Global Trading

The lending arm of crypto brokerage Genesis Global Trading suspended redemptions and new loan originations after an abnormal number of withdrawal requests that exceeded its current liquidity. Give that a minute to sink in folks.

  • Genesis started as the first Over The Counter (OTC) Bitcoin desk in 2013

  • Genesis is now crypto's largest lending desk

  • Genesis is part of the Digital Currency Group, Barry Silbert's holding company that owns CoinDesk, Foundry, Grayscale, and Luno

  • Digital Currency Group also runs a large VC firm.

The Shell Game

  • firstly you give your crypto to e.g. Gemini

  • Gemini gives your crypto to Genesis

  • Genesis lends your crypto to the fund

  •  the fund borrows from Genesis @ x+2.0%

  • Genesis gives Gemini @ x+1.0%

  • Gemini gives you x%

  • you have now earned yield but where is your crypto?

What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Genesis sits at the epicentre of the global crypto capital markets.

Genesis custodies funds.

Genesis helps institutions earn yield.

Genesis is the yield product for CeFi platforms e.g. Gemini.

And this is why Genesis halting withdrawals is potentially so bad.

Are You Still Standing?

This could be your last chance to secure your crypto before it gets vaporised.

Send the last of your crypto to your wallet ASAP while you are waiting for your Ledger Nano (or Trezor) to arrive in the mail.

Or Are You Sitting On The Fence?
