Gemini ‘supportive’ of Genesis mediation, but frustrated over pacing


Crypto lender Genesis and its key creditor group have agreed to a 30-day mediation process in an attempt to move forward with a final restructuring plan, though one company is expressing “frustration” over the pace of progress.

On April 30, Gemini tweeted that Genesis, its parent company Digital Currency Group (DCG), its Unsecured Creditors Committee (UCC) and Gemini have agreed to a 30-day mediation process in court on April 28. 

Gemini said its aim is to “drive to a final resolution as soon as possible, and that it was “supportive” of mediation. Gemini however added it had “expressed our frustration” regarding “the pace of progress among the parties and the need for urgency.”
