The current liquidity squeeze witnessed across the crypto space influenced Genesis Global to file for bankruptcy protection on January 19. Stellar Foundation was confirmed to be on Genesis’s top 50 creditors list. The firm is said to have lent $13 million to the troubled risk management firm in the previous trading year.
Genesis Bankruptcy Filing
Genesis Global joins other crypto exchanges in filing for bankruptcy protection, citing the current crypto market condition. Earlier this week, the troubled crypto lender filed for bankruptcy protection to avert similar incidents that happened to Bahamas crypto exchange FTX last November.
The claim list submitted by Genesis at the Delaware Bankruptcy Court is now a topic of controversy. Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) leads the other 50 debtors on the list after lending the crypto lender $13 million last year.
The Stellar group confirms that the loan comprises a small portion of its total assets that fail to interfere with the firm operations. The team from Stellar stated that Genesis’s move would not halt Stellar ongoing projects that require fathomable capital.
An update on the Stellar Foundation Website shows that it has accumulated $30 million from XLM holdings that will be utilized in improving the Stellar Ecosystem.

Following the collapse of FTX, Genesis suspended the redemption of assets indefinitely.

From the creditors, the list is reported that the amount Genesis owes the creditors is a consequential amount translating to a figure above $3.5 billion.
