On Wednesday, the company suspended withdrawals for its lending division, Gemini Earn, citing  “extreme market dislocation” and “loss of industry confidence caused by the FTX implosion”, adding that it was looking into options for the lending unit, including locating a new source of financing. 

According to blockchain data platform Arkham Intelligence, digital asset balances on Gemini crypto wallets dropped from about $2.2 billion to $1.7 billion on Wednesday.

Stablecoin issuer Tether USDT/USD said on Wednesday that it had no exposure to Genesis or the Gemini Earn program.
