Genesis Owes More Than $3.6 Billion to Top 50 Creditors

Genesis Global, which filed for bankruptcy protection in New York late Thursday, owes more than $3.6 billion to its top creditors.

After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York late on Jan. 19, Genesis published a list of its top 50 unsecured claims. The total value of the claims amount to over $3.6 billion. 

Some of the biggest claims — including one of nearly half a billion dollars — are attached to entities whose identities have been redacted. They mostly belong to individual creditors, according to one person familiar with the matter.

The list includes numerous claims involving well-known crypto firms. Gemini Trust Company, which has for weeks been involved in a public spat with Genesis’s parent company Digital Currency Group, tops the list with a claim of $766 million.

  • Bankrupt FTX seeks to exclude Dubai unit from US wind-down proceedings

    Crypto exchange FTX, which filed for bankruptcy in the US last November, is seeking to exclude its Dubai unit from the wind-down proceedings. FTX Dubai, which was set up in February 2022 and is owned by the company's European arm, did not conduct any business prior to the bankruptcy filing in the UAE. The estate argues that FTX Dubai is balance sheet solvent and a voluntary liquidation procedure in accordance with UAE laws would allow for a timely distribution of the positive cash balance after payment of all outstanding liabilities and liquidation of all assets. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Aug. 23.
