The Silvergate Fallout- What's Happening to the Market?

The crypto market is currently going through a turbulent phase due to increased uncertainty amid SEC’s regulatory crack down against different firms. However, the market has experienced another bottleneck. The shock financial fallout of the crypto-friendly bank, Silvergate, has caused a panic within the market. Based on the recent statement, the bank is reviewing whether it can stay profitable in the long run or not.

Silvergate announced that it would delay its annual filing of the 10K report. The decision played a major role in pulling back the prices of several tokens. The 10K report is demanded by the SEC for an overview of a company’s business and financial position. Similarly, Silvergate stated that it sold additional debt and securities throughout January and February. However, the bank expects to suffer additional losses in the upcoming months.

Silvergate made a name for itself in the world of crypto as the result of offering a widely-used payments network. The payments network in discussion plays a major role in the real-time transfer of funds between numerous crypto firms. However, a great percentage of crypto exchanges, stablecoin issuers, and trading desks are no longer accepting payments via Silvergate.
