Cross River has not hedged any of it's HTM portfolios according to it's own filings. Absolute disaster of a solution if I ever saw one.

“because we personally do not like their customers” is not a valid answer to these questions

Dear God. Barney Frank openly admits that Signature was arbitrarily shuttered despite no insolvency because regulators wanted to kill off the last major pro-crypto bank. Colossal scandalhttps://t.co/Sa25w6Au7b pic.twitter.com/gLuiybHepS

OH MY, THE CONTRAST--Fed voted down 100%-cash reserved @custodiabank & then days later voted a bank bailout after 2 epic bank runs (as Fed Vice Chair for Supervision brags Fed-supervised banks are "well protected from bank runs" on the morning of SVB bank run). Can't make it up🤯 https://t.co/zFKP6iFO99

For @wsj to say flat out that SVB could have failed because they added non-white men to their board shows how far behind the times (and certifiably stupid) this publication really is. It makes me so angry and very sad. WSJ readers and staff deserve better. pic.twitter.com/ppbcugJNhW

I dumped a live Ethereum contract into GPT-4.
In an instant, it highlighted a number of security vulnerabilities and pointed out surface areas where the contract could be exploited. It then verified a specific way I could exploit the contract pic.twitter.com/its5puakUW

It’s no wonder the American people are skeptical of a system that holds millions of struggling student loan borrowers in limbo but steps in overnight to ensure that billion-dollar crypto firms won’t lose a dime in deposits.

I'll bet anyone $1 million dollars that the US does not enter hyperinflation
— James Medlock (@jdcmedlock) March 16, 2023
I will take that bet.
You buy 1 BTC.
I will send $1M USD.
This is ~40:1 odds as 1 BTC is worth ~$26k.
The term is 90 days.
All we need is a mutually agreed custodian who will still be there to settle this in the event of digital dollar devaluation.
If someone knows how to do this… https://t.co/tcuBNd679T pic.twitter.com/6Aav9KeJpe
