Circle ($USDC) Has Over $3B Tied Up At Silicon Valley Bank
The issuer of the second-largest stablecoin Circle has stated that it held an undisclosed portion of its $9.8 billion cash reserves at the failed Silicon Valley Bank as of 17th January 2023. Circle Still Has $3.3 Billion Held Up At SVB According to Circle’s latest attestation, the US-based stablecoin issuer holds a part of the USDC’s cash reserves at Silicon Valley Bank. USDC has a circulating supply of around $43 billion, fully backed by government bonds and cash-like assets. According to the company’s January reserve report, the firm held nearly $10 billion in cash at various regulated banks to shore up USDC’s value. On 10th March, cash deposits in its reserves stood at $11.1 billion, according to its website. USDC’s banking partners included Silicon Valley Bank, Citizens Trust Bank, Bank of New York Mellon, Customers Bank, New York Community Bank, Signature Bank, and Silvergate Bank. Circle also holds a part of its reserves in a dedicated BlackRock fund. USDC Concerns Concerns around USDC have been growing recently after it emerged in Circle’s latest audit that as of 31st January 2023, $8.6 billion, around 20% of its reserves, were held up at various financial institutions. These include the recently bankrupt Silvergate and now shuttered Silicon Valley Bank. However, Circle had stated last week that it had cut all ties with Silvergate bank. In an attempt to assuage fears and provide transparency, Circle stated that it had initiated wire transfers on Thursday to remove balances from SVB. However, these were not yet processed, leaving around $3.3 billion of its reserves stuck at the bank. Circle tweeted, stating, “Following the confirmation at the end of today that the wires initiated on Thursday to remove balances were not yet processed, $3.3 billion of the ~$40 billion of USDC reserves remain at SVB.” USDC Conversions Paused Piling on further misery on Circle, shortly after the USDC issuer’s announcement, Coinbase stated that it is temporarily pausing USDC:USD conversions over the weekend. The exchange released a statement on Twitter, stating, “We are temporarily pausing USDC:USD conversions over the weekend while banks are closed. During periods of heightened activity, conversions rely on USD transfers from the banks that clear during normal banking hours. When banks open on Monday, we plan to re-commence conversions.” A little later, Binance also stated that it was temporarily suspending the conversion of USDC to BUSD due to “ongoing market conditions” related to high inflows and difficulty in supporting the conversion. However, the exchange called it a routine risk management step. “Binance has temporarily suspended auto-conversion of USDC to BUSD due to current market conditions, specifically related to high inflows & the increasing burden to support the conversion. This is a normal risk-management procedural step to take while we monitor the situation.” Clamor For Continuity Grows Circle also joined calls by other depositors and customers of SVB for the bank’s continuity, stating that it is important for the larger U.S. economy. The firm also stated that it would be following the guidance provided by state and federal regulators. “Like other customers and depositors who relied on SVB for banking services, Circle joins calls for continuity of this important bank in the U.S. economy and will follow the guidance provided by state and Federal regulators.” Further adding to this statement, Circle’s Chief Strategy Officer and head of global policy, Dante Disparte, stated, “@circle is currently protecting #USDC from a black swan failure in the U.S. banking system. @SVB_Financial is a critical bank in the U.S. economy, and its failure - without a Federal rescue plan - will have broader implications for business, banking, and entrepreneurs. We join the calls from policymakers, regulators, investors, businesses, and, most of all, people who rely on a well-functioning U.S. banking system as a condition precedent of a growing economy.” Disclaimer: This article is provided for informational purposes only.

Crypto Lobbying Needs a Reset: More FTC, less SEC
Of all the Securities and Exchange Commission’s actions against crypto entities that have stirred the industry’s ire, the agency’s recent move forcing New York-based Paxos to cease issuing its partner Binance’s BUSD stablecoin is the most deserving of an outcry. How, critics rightfully asked, can a token that’s explicitly designed not to fluctuate in price be considered a security?

Launched in September 2019, Binance USD (BUSD) is a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. Dollar at a 1:1 ratio. BUSD coin is issued jointly by Binance cryptocurrency exchange and Paxos, a widely-recognized blockchain solutions company that also issues its own stablecoin called the Pax dollar or USDP.

BUSD is supported both by the native BNB Chain as well as the Ethereum blockchain. The stablecoin is approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and is said to be audited on a monthly basis. The audit is conducted to verify that  BUSD issuance is backed by corresponding USD reserves, and the monthly attestation reports can be accessed on both Paxos and Binance websites.

Since BUSD is a dollar-pegged cryptocurrency, it is actively used for online payments as well as crypto trading. Some users also hold stablecoins like BUSD to store value and hedge against inflation in local currencies compared to the U.S. dollar.

BUSD price

According to our BUSD live price chart, BUSD price has always been in the vicinity of $1, ever since its launch in September 2019. Although it deviates by a few cents every now and then, it has never witnessed any sharp falls or rises, barring a couple of occasions. 

BUSD coin’s first noteworthy fluctuation came in March 2020 when it rose to an all-time high of $1.11 on March 12, but quickly lost a fair bit of ground and plummeted down to its all-time low of $0.88, within 24 hours, on March 13, as markets around the world crashed due to COVID-19 breaking out. Besides those two instances, BUSD price has been fairly stable all along.

How BUSD works

While BUSD was originally issued on the Ethereum blockchain as an ERC-20 token, it can also exist on the BNB Chain in the BEP-2 token format. You can buy it directly on the Paxos platform on a 1:1 basis against USD, at zero fees, and use it anywhere within the crypto ecosystem, for loans, commerce, payments etc.

Paxos is responsible for the issuance of BUSD coins. To buy BUSD directly on Paxos, you must be a verified user and deposit USD funds through wire transfer. Alternatively, BUSD can also be purchased on various other established cryptocurrency exchanges, including Binance.

Whenever a BUSD holder wishes to redeem their BUSD for cash, the coins are burnt by Paxos, and the user is reimbursed with their cash equivalent. There’s no cap on how many BUSD can be issued, and its supply depends entirely on the amount of fiat collateral deposited with Paxos for minting BUSD.

It is claimed that BUSD is 100% backed by US Treasury bills (including money-market funds and/or repurchase agreements) and cash reserves held in insured US banks.

BUSD news, updates and highlights

In an important news development for BUSD coin, in August 2020, the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) added Binance USD to its ‘Greenlist’ of approved stablecoins. While BUSD was approved by NYDFS at its launch in September 2019, exchanges required approval before listing it as a crypto asset on their respective platforms. This development meant that licensed financial institutions could now freely use BUSD, without requiring any prior regulatory approval.

More recently, in April 2022, amid the Russia-Ukraine war, Binance announced a crypto card for displaced Ukrainians, allowing the card holders to receive financial support in BUSD coins. To receive financial support, the card holders had to be verified by local nonprofit organizations. Besides availing financial relief in the form of BUSD, the card enabled Ukrainian refugees to freely send and receive crypto payments, and conduct transactions at retail establishments spread all over the European Economic Area.
