“The closure of three crypto-friendly banks, Silvergate, SVB, and Signature, is likely to result in short-term liquidity issues since these banks acted as the primary ramps for US dollar into crypto assets. We might see a rapid shift in the usage of new banking partners by the crypto industry. Many in the industry are pivoting to Mercury, BCB Group, Axos, and a few other banks that cater to crypto startups. This could also spark a flight of crypto companies to other more favourable jurisdictions like Switzerland, Hong Kong, Dubai, and the UK,” Parth Chaturvedi, Crypto Ecosystem Lead, CoinSwitch told Gadgets 360.
