Gemini, a crypto asset exchange and lending platform headquartered in New York, New York, offered and sold Gemini Interest Accounts ("GIAs") to investors through Gemini Earn, which allowed investors to lend crypto assets in exchange for interest payments.
When Genesis encountered financial distress as a result of a series of collapses in the crypto market in 2022, including FTX Trading Ltd., Genesis was unable to return the crypto assets it borrowed from Gemini Earn investors. On or about November 16, 2022, Gemini paused the Gemini Earn program and announced it would not be able to honor participants' redemption requests within the service agreement timeframe.
The action alleges that Gemini made materially false and misleading statements about GIAs being a safe method for storing crypto assets and collecting interest payments, and omitted and concealed relevant information concerning the risks associated with Gemini Earn, including information regarding the program partner Genesis Global Capital, LLC. The action also alleges that defendants failed to register Gemini as an exchange and/or broker-dealer, and offered and sold unregistered securities, including GIAs and other crypto assets, on Gemini.
