Genesis Treasury

Genesis works with forward-thinking treasury executives who are interested in purchasing and holding bitcoin as a treasury reserve asset.

The Treasury Role Is

Genesis works with treasury executives looking to use return on equity, liquidity and yield as tools to move their business forward.

We help proactive treasurers use bitcoin to optimize the mix of assets on their balance sheet and deliver meaningful contributions to overall financial performance.
