The Digital Currency Group (DCG) has responded to recent allegations made by Gemini co-founder Cameron Winklevoss against the DCG, calling them “desperate and unconstructive publicity stunts.”
This is another desperate and unconstructive publicity stunt from @cameron to deflect blame from himself and Gemini, who are solely responsible for operating Gemini Earn and marketing the program to its customers.

Earlier on Jan. 10, Cameron alleged that Genesis Global and its parent company DCG, led by Barry Silbert, conspired to defraud about 340,000 Gemini Earn users.
According to the allegations, Barry, Genesis, and DCG lied to Gemini and its users that DCG had invested about $1.2 billion in Genesis to continue its operations, while Genesis lost a similar amount after 3AC collapsed.
However, DCG argues that the recent arguments are a deflection of blame from Cameron Winklevoss himself, Gemini, and the parties solely responsible for marketing and operating Gemini Earn.
Furthermore, the firm has maintained that it will pursue all available legal remedies in response to the “malicious, fake, and defamatory attacks” made by the Gemini co-founder.
Worth noting, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are investigating Digital Currency Group (DCG) to examine internal money transfers or loans within the firm, according to recent reports.
