Court approves Genesis settlement of $175M to FTX, expunges billions in claims

The Bankruptcy Settlement between FTX and GGC

A settlement agreement allowing FTX-affiliated Alameda Research to receive $175 million from GGC was recently approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The judge, Sean Lane, also expunged multiple claims by the FTX debtors against Genesis.

The difference between web 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 is that each version offers different levels of interactivity and user experience. Web 2.0 and 3.0 are the most recent versions, with the latter being the most advanced. While the difference between web 3.0 and the metaverse is that the latter is an online virtual world, web 3.0 is an upgrade to the existing web.

The difference between web 2.0 and 3.0 is that the former is focused on user-generated content, while the latter is more focused on machine-generated content. Additionally, web 2.0 is more focused on creating a user-friendly interface, while web 3.0 is more focused on providing a better user experience.

FTX Trading, Alameda Research, and West Realm Shires Services Claims

In May 2023, FTX debtors filed claims totaling around $3.9 billion. These claims included approximately $1.8 billion in loan repayments allegedly made by Alameda to GGC, $1.6 billion of assets allegedly withdrawn by the Genesis debtors from FTX, and other assets. However, the court accepted the withdrawal of a large number of these claims, including three claims by FTX Trading, six claims by Alameda Research, and six claims by West Realm Shires Services, which represents FTX US.

The approved settlement represents a significant reduction from the original amount claimed by FTX debtors. Genesis stated that the agreement was “fair and equitable” and would help the company to avoid “protracted litigation” with an “inherently uncertain” outcome. Conversely, FTX creditors expressed dissatisfaction with the settlement and urged the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of FTX to challenge the agreement in August 2023.

FTX’s collapse in November 2022 caused a ripple effect in the cryptocurrency industry. Genesis, a crypto lending firm, was among the companies affected due to its exposure to FTX, with its derivatives business losing access to $175 million worth of crypto assets stored in an FTX trading account. Subsequently, Genesis halted withdrawals in November 2022 and filed for bankruptcy in January 2023.

The agreement between Genesis and FTX is in the middle of the trial of FTX’s creator Sam Bankman Fried, who is accused of 13 crimes such as fraud, money laundering and bribing officials.
