Genesis owes Gemini users nearly a billion dollars.
Barry Responds on Twitter:
There you go again. Stop trying to pretend that you and DCG are innocent bystanders and had nothing to do with creating this mess. It’s completely disingenuous.
So how does DCG owe Genesis $1.675 billion if it didn’t borrow the money? Oh right, that promissory note…
