Genesis Sought Emergency Loan of $1 Billion: WSJ

1 min read Original Link

Genesis sought an emergency loan of $1 billion from investors before telling clients it was suspending redemptions in the wake of the collapse of FTX, The Wall Street Journal reported. Genesis sought access to the credit facility by 10 a.m. Monday, citing a liquidity crunch, according to the Journal. The firm failed to get that funding, according to a confidential fundraising document viewed by the newspaper. “There is ongoing run on deposits driven mainly by retail programs and partners of Genesis (i.e., Gemini Earn) and institutional clients testing liquidity,” the document said, according to the paper.
