Michael Moro, Genesis Trading CEO, stated according to Reuters: “We expect more new entrants into the market place, and lending rates to correspondingly decrease. But since this space is still so new, I think the strong level of growth will continue for some time.”

Genesis, a trading company focusing on digital currencies, was founded in 2015. The company aims to make it easier to buy and sell large blocks of digital currency.
