FDIC chair Gruenberg lied at least twice in his testimony to Congress today:
1. says SigNet IP has already been sold (false, & they are blocking the sale to interested parties)
2. denies that FDIC supervision is more onerous for banks that service digital asset clients (false)

Whatever one believes about crypto (many don't yet see the potential/need) major US policy decisions should be made by legislatures and regulatory process, not unelected officials. Process exists in part to avoid throwing the baby out with the bathwater wsj.com/articles/us-re…

The @federalreserve just reiterated its conclusion, in the middle of a banking crisis it did not see coming, that a bank holding cash to back 108% of deposits is unsafe & unsound--while it continues to believe banks holding cash to back only about 6% of deposits are safe & sound

These are assassinations of otherwise functional banks that dared to service a politically disfavored industry: Crypto.
Do not forget what they are putting at risk.

When the Fed raises rates so aggressively, the "cap rates" on Commercial Real Estate (CRE) should rise in lockstep. But they haven't. The next big shoe to fall in CREDIT, (because of interest rate increases) is CRE exposure at Banks.... The loans are ALL mismarked, just like… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
The @federalreserve chair Powell has blamed the banking crisis on bad management and a need to review regulatory oversight.
Maybe he forgot what he said in 2012? Both?

YET ANOTHER CALL for full-reserve banks (the biz model denied by the Fed just before the bank runs hit & calls started coming in for exactly that from far & wide). The world is upside down! @custodiabank proposed this. Hey Fed, you have power to reverse! hbr.org/2023/03/how-pa…

Credit Suisse, a bank that lost $7.8 billion last year, is being rescued by a bank that lost $143 billion last year.
Gotta love the banking system.
DID YOU KNOW, @mattyglesias, that @custodiabank proposed EXACTLY this & the Fed denied it on Jan 27 as “unsafe & unsound” 🤦♀️— after sitting on Custodia’s application for ~2.5 years? Might they take that bad decision back now??🤔 twitter.com/mattyglesias/s…
The @federalreserve is technically bankrupt.
In 2023 the Fed will post its first annual operating loss of $80 billion since 1915 and will have a negative capital of $38B.
This loss does not count the $1.3 trillion unrealized loss on its portfolio.
Wall Street Silver @WallStreetSilv3 weeks ago
If you thought SVB was bad ... The Fed is sitting on unrealized losses of ~$1.2 trillion on their $8.3 trillion bond portfolio.
And the Fed is losing money every day by paying $$$ to commercial banks via reverse repos.

Over the weekend, Bitcoin settled ~$33 billion, facilitated ~600k transactions, & issued 2,037 new BTC at a steady & predictable ~1.8% inflation rate. ~1 million new addresses were generated & miners earned $43 m producing 326 blocks. Banks were closed. The Fed was not needed.

WOW--Fed admits its supervisory error in press release. But Barr said this👇while SVB's bank run was in full swing.
VC Barr: still think @custodiabank's 100% cash model is unsafe & unsound? Aren't u curious how we knew & warned of bank run probs in advance? Care to meet finally? twitter.com/ByKyleCampbell…
