• ‘Too big to fail’ was bad enough for the banks. Now we have ‘too many to fail.’

    Almost a year after the mini banking crisis in the United States, it is worth revisiting the episode. Was it just a tempest in a teacup? Was there really a systemic threat, or was it just a problem with a few banks? Should the interventions by the U.S. Federal Reserve and Treasury worry or comfort us?

    Recall that three mid-size U.S. banks suddenly failed around March 2023. The most prominent was Silicon Valley Bank, which became the second-largest bank failure in U.S. history, after Washington Mutual in 2008. Roughly 90% of the deposits at SVB were uninsured, and uninsured deposits are prone to runs. Making matters worse, SVB had invested significant sums in long-term bonds, the market value of which fell as interest rates rose. When SVB sold some of these holdings to raise funds, the unrealized losses embedded in its bond portfolio started coming to light. A failed equity offering then triggered a classic bank run.

    It is convenient to think that these issues were confined to just a few rogue banks. But the problem was systemic.

    When the Fed engages in quantitative easing (QE), it buys bonds from financial institutions. Typically, those sellers then deposit the money in their bank, and this results in a large increase in uninsured deposits in the banking system. On the banks’ asset side, there is a corresponding increase in central-bank reserves. This is stable, since reserves are the most liquid asset on the planet and can be used to satisfy any impatient depositors who come for their money. Unfortunately, a number of smaller banks (with less than $50 billion in assets) moved away from this stable position as QE continued.

    Historically, smaller U.S. banks financed themselves conservatively, with uninsured demandable deposits accounting for only around 10% of their liabilities. Yet by the time the Fed was done with its pandemic-era QE, these banks’ uninsured demandable deposits exceeded 30% of liabilities. Though that level was still far below SVB’s, these institutions clearly had drunk from the same firehose.

    Smaller banks were also more conservative about liquidity in the past. At the outset of QE in late 2008, banks with less than $50 billion in assets had reserves (and other assets that could be used to borrow reserves) that exceeded the uninsured demandable deposits they had issued. By early 2023, however, they had issued runnable claims (in aggregate) that were one and a half times the size of their liquid assets. Instead of holding liquid reserves, their assets were now more weighted toward long-term securities and term lending, including a significant share of commercial real-estate (CRE) loans.

    Thus, as the Fed raised interest rates, the economic value of these banks’ assets fell sharply. Some of the fall was hidden by accounting sleight of hand, but SVB’s sudden demise caused investors to scrutinize banks’ balance sheets more carefully. What they saw did not instill confidence. The KBW Nasdaq Bank Index duly fell by over 25%, and deposits started flowing out of a large number of banks, many of which lacked the liquidity to accommodate the sudden outflows. The risk of contagious runs across smaller banks was real, as was the possibly of the problem spreading more widely.

    The Treasury essentially took bank runs off the table, while the Fed provided banks the funds to accommodate the continuing — though no longer panicked — depositor outflows.

    Importantly, as private money flowed to large banks, very little flowed to small- and medium-size institutions. That is why the authorities had to come to the rescue. Soon after SVB’s demise, the Treasury signaled that no uninsured depositor in small banks would suffer losses in any further bank collapses.

    The Fed opened a generous new facility that lent money for up to one year to banks against the par, or face value, of the securities they held on their balance sheets, without adjusting for the erosion in the value of these securities from higher interest rates. And the Federal Home Loan Banks (FHLBanks) — effectively an arm of the U.S. government — increased its lending to stressed banks, with total advances to the banking system having already tripled between March 2022 and March 2023 amid the Fed’s policy tightening. Borrowing by small- and medium-size banks from these official sources skyrocketed.

    The Treasury essentially took bank runs off the table, while the Fed provided banks the funds to accommodate the continuing — though no longer panicked — depositor outflows. A potential banking crisis was converted into a slow-burning problem for banks as they recognized and absorbed the losses on their balance sheets.

    Just recently, New York Community Bancorp NYCB, -5.17%, which bought parts of one of the banks that failed in 2023, reminded us that this process is still underway when it announced large losses. With the Russell microcap index of small companies significantly underperforming the S&P 100 index OEX of the largest companies since March 2023, it appears that smaller banks’ troubles have weighed on their traditional clients: small- and medium-size companies.

    Where does that leave us? Although the situation could have been much worse if the Treasury and the Fed had not stepped in, the seeming ease with which the panic was arrested allowed public attention to move on. Apart from die-hard libertarians, no one seems to care much about the extent of the intervention that was needed to rescue the smaller banks, nor has there been any broad inquiry into the circumstances that led to the vulnerabilities.

    As a result, several questions remain unanswered. To what extent were the seeds of the 2023 banking stress sown by the pandemic-induced monetary stimulus and lax supervision of what banks did with the money? Did advances by the FHLBanks delay failed banks’ efforts to raise capital? Are banks that relied on official backstops after SVB’s failure keeping afloat distressed CRE borrowers, and therefore merely postponing an eventual reckoning?

    It is not good for capitalism when those who knowingly take risks — bankers and uninsured depositors, in this case — pay no price when a risk materializes. Despite sweeping banking reforms over the past 15 years, the authorities have once again shown that they are willing to bail out market players if enough of them have taken the same risk.

    “Too big to fail” was bad enough, but now we have “too many to fail.” The mini-crisis of March 2023 was much more than a footnote in banking history. We cannot afford to bury it.

  • How do I know the price of a cryptocurrency?

    To find the current price of a cryptocurrency, you can follow these steps:

    Cryptocurrency Exchanges:
    The most common way to check cryptocurrency prices is through cryptocurrency exchanges. Popular exchanges include Coinbase, Binance, Kraken, and others. Visit the exchange's website and look for the "Markets" or "Trading" section, where you can find a list of cryptocurrencies and their current prices.

    Cryptocurrency Price Websites:
    There are several dedicated websites that provide real-time cryptocurrency prices, historical data, and other related information. Examples include CoinMarketCap, CoinGecko, and CoinCap. Simply visit one of these websites, enter the name or symbol of the cryptocurrency you're interested in, and you'll find the current price.

    Mobile Apps:
    Many cryptocurrency price tracking apps are available for smartphones. Apps like CoinMarketCap, Blockfolio, and Delta allow you to track cryptocurrency prices, set up alerts, and manage your portfolio on the go.

    Cryptocurrency Price APIs:
    For developers or advanced users, cryptocurrency price APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) can be used to retrieve real-time price data programmatically. Many exchanges provide APIs that allow you to integrate price data into your own applications or scripts.

    Blockchain Explorers:
    Some cryptocurrencies have blockchain explorers that provide information about transactions, blocks, and current prices. While this method is less common, it can be useful for certain cryptocurrencies. For example, Etherscan for Ethereum provides price information along with other blockchain data.

    Remember that cryptocurrency prices can be highly volatile and can vary slightly between different exchanges due to factors such as liquidity and demand. Always double-check the source of the price information to ensure accuracy. Additionally, it's a good idea to use secure and reputable platforms when accessing cryptocurrency-related information.

  • In today's rapidly evolving financial landscape, Real World Asset (RWA) coins and tokens are emerging as game-changers. These digital assets represent tangible real-world assets like real estate, commodities, or revenue streams. Here's why they hold immense potential: 1️⃣ **Diversification**: RWA tokens enable investors to diversify their portfolios beyond traditional assets. You can now invest in real-world assets seamlessly, increasing your investment options. 2️⃣ **Global Access**: RWA tokens break down geographic barriers, allowing people from all corners of the world to invest in assets previously inaccessible to them. This fosters financial inclusion. 3️⃣ **Transparency**: Blockchain technology ensures transparency and traceability of transactions, reducing fraud and increasing trust. 4️⃣ **Efficiency**: Smart contracts streamline complex processes, reducing paperwork, time, and costs associated with traditional asset transfers. 5️⃣ **Liquidity**: RWA tokens provide liquidity to traditionally illiquid assets. Now, you can buy or sell fractions of real estate or other assets, making investments more flexible. 6️⃣ **Fractional Ownership**: You don't need to buy an entire property or asset; you can own a fraction of it, opening up investment opportunities to a wider audience. 7️⃣ **Security**: The blockchain's security features make it extremely challenging for unauthorized access or alteration of asset records. 8️⃣ **Stable Value**: Many RWA tokens are designed to be stablecoins, minimizing the price volatility often associated with cryptocurrencies. The potential of RWA coins and tokens to revolutionize finance and investment is clear. As this sector continues to grow and mature, it's an exciting time to be part of this financial evolution. 🌟💼🌍 #RWA #Cryptocurrency #FinancialInnovation #Investing #Blockchain #DigitalAssets

    Blockchain technology has the potential to surpass the internet in terms of its transformative impact and widespread adoption. While the internet revolutionized communication and information sharing, blockchain introduces a new paradigm that revolutionizes trust, security, and decentralized transactions. Here are several reasons why blockchain has the potential to surpass the internet:
    Enhanced Security and Trust: One of the fundamental features of blockchain technology is its ability to create a highly secure and tamper-resistant network. Unlike the internet, which relies on centralized authorities and intermediaries to validate transactions and secure data, blockchain utilizes a decentralized network of nodes that collectively validate and record transactions in an immutable ledger. This distributed consensus mechanism eliminates the need for intermediaries, reduces the risk of fraud, and enhances trust among participants. As data breaches and online fraud continue to plague the internet, blockchain's inherent security features make it a compelling alternative.
    Decentralization and Empowerment: The internet brought about a centralized model where power and control are concentrated in the hands of a few large corporations. In contrast, blockchain enables decentralization by distributing control and decision-making among network participants. This decentralized nature has the potential to democratize various industries, such as finance, supply chain, and governance. Through blockchain-based platforms, individuals can directly interact and transact with one another, bypassing traditional gatekeepers and intermediaries. This empowerment of individuals and communities fosters innovation, reduces inequality, and challenges the centralized status quo.
    Immutable and Transparent Records: Blockchain's distributed ledger technology ensures transparency and immutability of records. Every transaction or piece of data added to the blockchain is recorded permanently and cannot be altered without the consensus of the network. This feature eliminates the need for trust in centralized authorities, as anyone can independently verify the integrity of the blockchain's history. Such transparency and immutability can have far-reaching implications for industries that require auditability, such as supply chain management, healthcare, and voting systems. By providing an indisputable and traceable record of events, blockchain technology enhances accountability and reduces fraud.
    Smart Contracts and Automation: Blockchain's programmable capabilities, particularly through smart contracts, enable the automation of complex transactions and agreements. Smart contracts are self-executing contracts with predefined rules and conditions embedded in the blockchain. They eliminate the need for intermediaries and automate the enforcement of agreements, thereby reducing costs, increasing efficiency, and minimizing human error. This automation potential has vast implications across various sectors, including finance, real estate, intellectual property, and supply chain management. By streamlining processes and increasing efficiency, blockchain's smart contracts can reshape industries and drive substantial economic benefits.
    Tokenization and New Economies: Blockchain technology facilitates the tokenization of real-world assets, enabling the representation of physical or digital assets as tokens on the blockchain. This tokenization unlocks the potential for creating new economies and markets. It enables fractional ownership, liquidity, and seamless transferability of assets that were previously illiquid or inaccessible. Tokenization has the potential to revolutionize finance, art, real estate, and even personal data ownership. By enabling the creation of decentralized marketplaces and new economic models, blockchain technology can disrupt traditional industries and foster innovation.
    While the internet has transformed the world, blockchain technology presents a paradigm shift that can surpass its impact. With enhanced security, decentralization, transparency, automation, and the potential for new economies, blockchain has the power to reshape industries, empower individuals, and foster trust in ways that the internet alone cannot achieve. As blockchain continues to evolve and find applications in various sectors, its transformative potential is becoming increasingly evident, making it a strong contender to surpass the internet in terms of its overall impact.

As data breaches and online fraud continue to plague the internet, blockchain's inherent security features make it a compelling alternative. Decentralization and Empowerment: The internet brought about a centralized model where power and control are concentrated in the hands of a few large corporations. In contrast, blockchain enables decentralization by distributing control and decision-making among network participants. This decentralized nature has the potential to democratize various industries, such as finance, supply chain, and governance. Through blockchain-based platforms, individuals can directly interact and transact with one another, bypassing traditional gatekeepers and intermediaries. This empowerment of individuals and communities fosters innovation, reduces inequality, and challenges the centralized status quo. Immutable and Transparent Records: Blockchain's distributed ledger technology ensures transparency and immutability of records. Every transaction or piece of data added to the blockchain is recorded permanently and cannot be altered without the consensus of the network. This feature eliminates the need for trust in centralized authorities, as anyone can independently verify the integrity of the blockchain's history. Such transparency and immutability can have far-reaching implications for industries that require auditability, such as supply chain management, healthcare, and voting systems. By providing an indisputable and traceable record of events, blockchain technology enhances accountability and reduces fraud. Smart Contracts and Automation: Blockchain's programmable capabilities, particularly through smart contracts, enable the automation of complex transactions and agreements. Smart contracts are self-executing contracts with predefined rules and conditions embedded in the blockchain. They eliminate the need for intermediaries and automate the enforcement of agreements, thereby reducing costs, increasing efficiency, and minimizing human error. This automation potential has vast implications across various sectors, including finance, real estate, intellectual property, and supply chain management. By streamlining processes and increasing efficiency, blockchain's smart contracts can reshape industries and drive substantial economic benefits. Tokenization and New Economies: Blockchain technology facilitates the tokenization of real-world assets, enabling the representation of physical or digital assets as tokens on the blockchain. This tokenization unlocks the potential for creating new economies and markets. It enables fractional ownership, liquidity, and seamless transferability of assets that were previously illiquid or inaccessible. Tokenization has the potential to revolutionize finance, art, real estate, and even personal data ownership. By enabling the creation of decentralized marketplaces and new economic models, blockchain technology can disrupt traditional industries and foster innovation. While the internet has transformed the world, blockchain technology presents a paradigm shift that can surpass its impact. With enhanced security, decentralization, transparency, automation, and the potential for new economies, blockchain has the power to reshape industries, empower individuals, and foster trust in ways that the internet alone cannot achieve. As blockchain continues to evolve and find applications in various sectors, its transformative potential is becoming increasingly evident, making it a strong contender to surpass the internet in terms of its overall impact.
