Genesis director to step down and move into advisory role

On Wednesday, Matthew Ballensweig, managing director of cryptocurrency broker Genesis, announced via Linkedin that he was formally leaving his post after over five years of tenure. Ballensweig is also the co-head of sales and trading. As told by Ballensweig, he has been transitioning his core responsibilities to a handful of trusted colleagues who will be taking the front-line role.

Ballensweig will stay with the firm in the foreseeable future as an advisor and will “take some time to travel and enjoy the holidays with friends and family before delving into my own next chapter.” Previously, Genesis’ CEO Michael Moro stepped down in August as the company began a transition period.
