Cryptocurrencies suffered mightily last year as the Federal Reserve and other major central banks around the world have raised interest rates to fight historic inflation, buffeted by everything from the Fed’s policy tightening to the implosions of the Terra/Luna ecosystem, hedge funds Three Arrows Capital and exchange FTX.

Sam Bankman-Fried is accused of diverting billions of dollars in FTX client funds to Alameda to bankroll venture investments, luxury real estate purchases, and political donations. On Tuesday, he pleaded not guilty in Manhattan federal court.

Crypto broker Genesis told clients in a new update that it needs more time to come up with a solution for the troubles at its lending unit. The sudden collapse of FTX roiled the digital-asset market and triggered a liquidity crunch at Genesis. 

“While we are committed to moving as quickly as possible, this is a very complex process that will take some additional time. We believe we can arrive at a solution," interim Chief Executive Officer Derar Islim wrote in a letter seen by Bloomberg News.
