SVB impact

While countries like India and China and Japan have said they do not see any material impact from SVB just yet, the reality is no one knows just how far SVB's tentacles go.

Asian banks

Asian banking stocks extended their declines earlier the week with Japanese firms hit particularly hard amid anxiety about systemic risk. Selling early in the week led to the Tokyo Stock Exchange banks index falling some 16%. It is the sharpest drops since the days after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which struck Japan.

Australia

Australia's productivity software maker, Nitro Software Limited has also declared it has around $12 million of its global cash reserves held on deposit with SVB. So where's the salad dressing? Well, US companies have disclosed around $5 billion in deposits implicated besides various credit facilities. Big names like Roku Inc, Roblox Corporation and online styling service, Stitch Fix Inc, all embroiled in this as well. In Europe, around 16 tech and life sciences companies have disclosed around $190 million in exposure to SVB. The thing about Asia is nobody really knows what the SVB impact is yet, but it will come to light pretty soon.

    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.  
    • The exchange continues to offers it's  users significant opportunities through its ecosystem products like PoolX and Launchpool. By participating in these platforms, users can benefit from various services such as staking, liquidity mining, and accessing new project opportunities. PoolX enables users to stake their assets and earn rewards through flexible investment options. Launchpool provides users with the chance to participate in early-stage project offerings. Overall, engaging with Bitget ecosystem products can diversify investment portfolios and facilitate exposure to new and promising projects in the crypto space.
