The crypto industry experienced another day of turmoil as the Digital Currency Group (DCG) CEO's letter to shareholders caused a stir. In the letter on Jan. 10, Barry Silbert, CEO of DCG, discussed the current state of the crypto market and the growing fear, uncertainty, and doubt around the company.? 

 

Barry Silbert's letter to shareholders was released shortly after Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder of Gemini, wrote an open letter accusing Silbert of defrauding customers. In the letter, Winklevoss called on Silbert to address the liquidity issues between Gemini and Genesis Global. DCG is the parent company of Genesis Global Capital, a crypto lending firm, and Grayscale, the largest crypto asset manager globally.? 

 

According to Winklevoss, DCG owes Genesis Global $1.675 billion, but Silbert denies these allegations and asserts that DCG never missed Genesis' interest payments. Additionally, Winklevoss alleged in his letter that Genesis loaned $2.36 billion to Three Arrows Capital (3AC), which has since gone bankrupt. 

 

Winklevoss alleges that the funds were liquidated resulting in a loss of $1.2 billion for DCG. He further states that Silbert had two options available to him: "restructure the Genesis loan book (either inside or outside of bankruptcy court) or fill the $1.2 billion hole." 

 

Silbert's letter, however, did not address Winklevoss' accusations or the $900 million debt Genesis owes Gemini. DCG has borrowed money from Genesis Global Capital, like many crypto investment firms, at market interest rates and with a liability of $575 million due in May 2023.
