Gemini is Preparing Legal Action Against DCG, Barry Silbert and Others — Cameron Winklevoss
Genesis Global announced its chapter 11 bankruptcy filing earlier today, and the co-founder and president of the Gemini, Cameron Winklevoss, called the move ‘a crucial step’ towards recovering the crypto exchange’s customer assets tied to the crypto lender.
He, however, added that the bankruptcy did not insulate Digital Currency Group (DCG), its founder and CEO Barry Silbert, and ‘other wrongdoers from accountability.’
‘We have been preparing to take direct legal action against Barry, DCG, and others who share responsibility for the fraud that has caused harm to the 340,000+ Earn users and others duped by Genesis and its accomplices,’ he tweeted.
Mr Winkelvoss stated that the only way legal action would be avoided was for Barry Silbert and DCG to ‘come to their senses and make a fair offer to creditors.’
