Bybit CEO offers clarity on exposure to Genesis, but community demands more By Cointelegraph


Genesis Global Trading, a prominent crypto lender, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in New York on Jan. 20, becoming the latest company to declare bankruptcy in the wake of FTX’s collapse. However, the focus of the crypto community has shifted toward other firms that had exposure to the lending firm.

One report suggested that a total of nine crypto firms had exposure to Genesis, including Gemini, Bybit, VanEck, Decentraland and others. Bybit CEO Ben Zhou was quick to respond to the reports and clarified that Bybit indeed had $150 million exposure to the bankrupt crypto lender via its investment arm Mirana.
