As per a recent report by Bloomberg, Genesis sold around 36 million GBTC shares on April 2, when the shares were valued at $58.50 per share.

This is approximately 50% higher than the price when Genesis first requested permission from a US bankruptcy court to sell the shares on February 2, when they were worth $38.50.

The total amount earned from the sale was $2.1 billion, which allowed Genesis to purchase 32,041 Bitcoin at a price of $65,685 per coin on April 2.

The company plans to use these Bitcoin to repay its creditors. As of now, the 32,041 Bitcoin is valued at $2.18 billion.
