Gemini Earn to repay customers’ crypto by month-end

A U.S. court has approved a Chapter 11 bankruptcy plan for the defunct cryptocurrency lender Genesis. According to a company announcement, Gemini, a Genesis creditor, will return assets to customers by the end of the month. 

Genesis, the bankrupt cryptocurrency lender that ceased operations following the demise of the Terra/luna ecosystem and Three Arrows Capital, had its bankruptcy plan approved in U.S. court. A judge rejected the objection put forth by Genesis owner Digital Currency Group (DCG). 

The US court judge rejected complaints by the Genesis Group of Companies before giving a verdict favoring the plan. The plan outlines a detailed process for allocating assets to lenders based on claim denomination. The new plan fundamentally differentiates treatment between lenders owed crypto and those owed American dollars. 

Lenders making claims in American dollars should expect to receive their entire balance. There is no clarity on what legal explanation Digital Currency Group will give to justify their move. The new ruling will have a big influence on the international settlement among Genesis, Gemini, and other lending firms in the bankruptcy case.

As an initial step, Gemini Earn will return 97% of funds to lenders. It denotes that a purchaser who deposits one bitcoin into Gemini Earn will receive that bitcoin back intact. There are remarkable differences in the responses of Gemini and FTX (Futures Exchange), a formerly global currency exchange. Gemini Earn prioritizes returning assets to lenders, providing them with the opportunity to access their Earn history. This is a significant development for the global crypto community, and the approved plan’s goal is to disburse $3 billion in cash and assets to the creditor community.

According to the recent verdict, the Digital Currency Group, as an equity holder, is not entitled to any financial stake in the plan. The recent court decision highlights the existing discrimination between lenders owed cryptocurrency and those owed American dollars. 

It is anticipated that the Digital Currency Group will file an appeal against the verdict, and that will be dependent on their capability to cite legal grounds for submitting an appeal. According to legal experts, the crushing asset crisis won’t be helpful to Gemini Earn’s bankruptcy case.

Prior to this decision, the Digital Currency Group had been unable to receive distribution of funds; the recent ruling has breathed new life into the arduous legal battle. It is undoubtedly a significant development with the potential for further fiscal and legal outcomes. 

The court ruling will lead to huge losses for the Gemini Earn parent company, ‘The Digital Currency Group.’ The decisive court ruling shook the global financial and crypto landscape, and Gemini Earn’s decision to disburse funds is a positive step. Genesis is known among crypto industry circles as a failed cryptocurrency establishment of the contemporary age.
