Crypto Lender Genesis Under Investigation By US Regulators
Federal and state securities regulators in the United States are looking into Genesis Global Capital.
According to Barron, Alabama is one of the states investigating whether Genesis, among other companies, persuaded citizens to invest in crypto-related assets without filing the necessary registrations.
It’s a part of a broad investigation into the connections between cryptocurrency companies, Genesis’ relationship with retail investors, and if the company or other industry players may have broken securities laws, Barron’s report.
The lender may have to file for bankruptcy protection, according to media reports, although DCG CEO Barry Silbert has affirmed the company is currently running smoothly.
Gemini, the exchange started by the Winklevoss twins, said it would halt withdrawals from accounts that enable retail investors to earn a yield on cryptocurrency deposits shortly after Genesis announced its withdrawal pause. In those cases, the lender is Gemini’s joint partner.
