Just months after FTX’s collapse drew some of the largest distressed investors to crypto, the spiraling industry has thrown up a new high-profile target: Genesis. 

While the lender only filed for bankruptcy less than two weeks ago, the broker XClaim has confirmed three trades for its claims with an average value of over $1 million, in the range of 25% to 35% of face value, according to Chief Strategy Officer Andrew Glantz. A $4 million claim was sold to Jefferies Leveraged Credit Products LLC, according to a Tuesday filing.
