Amid the crypto organizations’ fallout yesterday, Genesis filed for bankruptcy after a long battle to give back and earn users their digital assets. Cameron Winklevoss stated that the organization is battling to see DCG and its CEO Barry Silbert in court for causing the company to collapse.

Additionally, Cameron assured Earn participants that they are doing everything to ensure they get a fair share of the role of their investment funds. Barry and DCG are supposed to provide details about the befall of the organization.
