Genesis Global Capital has been the latest casualty of the effects of the crypto bear market. The crypto lender recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company’s lawyers have informed a bankruptcy court in New York of working “around the clock” to settle with creditors.
Genesis hopes for a swift resolution in bankruptcy
The lawyers noted that they have been working with the representatives of creditors and the US Trustee Office for the last two months to reach a consensus. The lending unit of Genesis halted withdrawals on November 18 last year because of exposure to FTX. Genesis had funds in FTX before the exchange’s bankruptcy.
Two months after halting withdrawals, Genesis filed for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy filing included two of the lender’s subsidiaries: Genesis Asia Pacific and Genesis Global Capital. Lawyers from the Cleary Gottleib law firm, which is representing Genesis in the bankruptcy proceedings, informed the bankruptcy court judge that they plan to settle by the end of the week.
According to attorney Sean O’Neal, Genesis had come up with a timeline and an approach to assist the lender in getting through the bankruptcy case.
