The digital asset financial firm Genesis is halting digital asset derivatives trading through GGC International, the company said in an email to clients that was reviewed by The Block.
Genesis said the move means it will no longer offers trading services through any of its business entities. It said the decision "was made voluntarily and for business reasons."
"If you have open derivatives positions with GGCI, these positions will be honored through expiry, and we will support transactions with you that close or help you manage any such open positions," Genesis wrote in the email.
The termination will be effective as of Sept. 21 at 5:00 pm ET.
GGCI, owned by Genesis Bermuda Holdco, facilitated the firm's spot trading activity.
Genesis's shrinking services
Genesis halting its digital asset derivative trading through GGCI comes nearly two weeks after the firm shuttered Genesis Global Trading's over-the-counter platform on Sept. 5.
