The fed have been trying to choke off crypto this year using the banking system.
The only thing they will achieve doing this is pushing innovation outside the borders.
Feds are just fuds

Banks and innovation/caution aren’t natural bedfellows
Some entity did this intentionally. Just the fact that it happened on Friday, with the market to freak out over the weekend is enough to be more than suspicious. I can’t remember the last time there was this much anticipation around the markets opening on Monday.
Yes of course *Crypto bad, but when we do it then gooood* whilst stroking their own… violin. 😏
So more FUD trying to blame SVB on crypto exposure
This is getting comical
So busy “protecting” banks from crypto they don’t have time to protect crypto from banks?…
I can understand fed FUD, it’s their job to promote their product. It’s just getting super annoying when their product is almost as flawed. It’s clear people deserve something better.
