Charles Hoskinson Compares Crypto Collateral To Banks’ Liquidity

Hoskinson made the comment in context of the manner in which traditional banks handle their reserve assets. This comes at a time when crypto based businesses face scrutiny over their cash reserves management. The Cardano founder brought up the way in which stablecoin issuers manage their collateral as against the banks. For example, Tether claims that USDT is backed in excess of 81% by cash and cash equivalents. The company also said it holds total excess reserves of $960 million.

He referred to the criticism faced by crypto companies even in the instance where they hold collateral in cash and treasury bills. On the other side, the Silicon Valley Bank crisis stemmed from its investments in government bonds.
