Why Genesis earned more than $1 billion in Ethereum, Bitcoins, and XRP Loans

Genesis Global Capital, a Bitcoin lending firm, made $1.1 billion in lending cryptocurrency in 2018. It could be surprising for investors and other coin users because of the stature and movement of Bitcoin and Ethereum. While there have been some transitions and falling off in the market especially last year, Genesis created revenue through selling and charging interest rates to crypto entrepreneurs and hedge funders to ensure their wallets stay cash positive despite the challenges in the market.

The Bitcoin’s encounters in the negative line in 2018 has made crypto owners, and entrepreneurs doubt the market’s ability to continue with the digital currency. Given this need, Genesis made leverage by lending to trading firms and hedge funders in a ‘spot’ borrowing scheme with interest and crypto business as collaterals. Loans ranged from $153 million up to at least $23 million in the third-quarter of 2018.

Genesis made a good business being support or a lifeline to crypto businesses that are challenged by the digital financial market’s instability. It might sound risky, but the company has made through the year earning more than $1 billion worth.
