According to Winklevoss, “Genesis was left with losses of at least $1.2 billion after the funds were declared in liquidation.” “At this point, Barry Silbert had two legitimate options: restructure the Genesis loan book (in or out of bankruptcy court) or fill the $1.2 billion hole,” Winklevoss said. “He did neither.” Gemini’s co-founder alleges that DCG and Genesis actively made “false statements and misrepresentations” about Genesis’ supposed gap and financial condition.

The Gemini founder’s open letter sparked significant backlash after it was posted on Twitter.

I hope every high paid person in charge will bear the responsibility [and] it’s not a finger-pointing contest,” the person added.
“You know there are courts these days? Just file a lawsuit instead of these stupid twitter letters,” another person tweeted.
