EP15 - The DCG & Genesis merry-go-round and Gemini lies

We review the leveraged trades within the DCG & Genesis merry-go-round and analyze Gemini's Winklevoss cries for help as he tries to absolve him from accountability

🤔 We explore the relationship between Gemini Exchange, its "Earn" program, Genesis Lending, and the role of Grayscale's Bitcoin & Ethereum trusts in what appears to be a perpetual leveraged merry-go-round.

Note to listeners: In the intro, I stated “it’s the 3rd week of January 2022”, which was a mistake. It’s 2023! oh, how time flies.

🚀 In this podcast we review:

  • The complex relationship between Gemini Exchange, Genesis Trading, and Gemini’s Earn program

  • Allegations of conflicts of interest between Genesis and Grayscale

  • Questionable lending practices of Genesis
