Genesis Slapped with $21M SEC Fine Over Unregistered Sales

Genesis Global Capital will fork over $21 million to the SEC, settling claims its Gemini Earn program was an unregistered securities gig.

The drama unfolded in the Southern District of New York's courts on Monday, tying the penalty to Genesis’s bankruptcy saga. The SEC won't see a dime until Genesis’s bankruptcy dance is done.

The Allegations 💼
In a January 2023 legal move, the SEC accused Genesis and Gemini of pooling “billions in crypto from loads of investors” through Gemini Earn, an offer they allegedly forgot to register.

A major no-no under federal law. Genesis, part of Digital Currency Group, and Gemini, run by the Winklevoss duo, found themselves in hot water.

Crisis Chronicles 📉
November 2022 saw Genesis hitting pause on withdrawals from Gemini Earn, citing a cash crunch amid crypto chaos—right when FTX was taking its nosedive.

Genesis was sitting on $900 million in investor crypto then. Adding to the mix, Gemini faced a $37 million slap from New York regulators in February for related compliance hiccups.

Gemini's Game Plan 🔄
Gemini Earn's blog waves a hopeful flag, talking up a court-okayed plan to return all invested digital assets to its investors, keeping mum on the SEC settlement.

What’s Next?
While Genesis plays silent, the SEC's legal tango with Gemini continues. This marks another chapter in the crypto world’s regulatory reckoning, with Genesis’s hefty fine serving as a stark reminder of the SEC’s watchful eye.
