According to the blog post, Genesis is continuing working with its advisors, in collaboration with Digital Currency Group, to "evaluate options to preserve client assets and move the business forward." The firm added:
"While we are committed to moving as quickly as possible, this is a very complex process that will take some additional time. We believe we can arrive at a solution. We will continue to give you updates on meaningful developments, including any updates on timing."
The update follows accusations by Cameron Winklevoss, co-founder and president of digital currency exchange Gemini, who recently blamed the head of DCG for engaging in "bad faith" tactics.
As iHodl earlier reported, Gemini's lending arm, Gemini Earn, halted withdrawals, citing issues at Genesis. The exchange wrote in a blog post that Genesis' partial suspension of services had made it impossible to meet requirements of the service-level agreement.
