Why the Fed is getting worried about the most boring thing in crypto

Unlike crypto critics who attack bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for being too volatile, the Federal Reserve is increasingly sounding the alarm over investigating the coins that set out to be far more boring: stablecoins.

Stablecoin insurance firm Bridge Mutual to protect against possible Tether depegging

Now one company intends to provide discretionary coverage for investors against that scenario — and Tether itself is backing the play.

Bridge Mutual aims to mitigate the risk of loss of funds resulting from hacked or exploited smart contracts, exchange hacks or theft, price crashes in stablecoins, and other digital asset vulnerabilities.

The Fidelity Stablecoin that does what so-called ‘Stablecoin’ issuers claim is impossible!

We hear a lot from so-called ‘Stablecoin’ Issuers that they can’t do audits, because so-called ‘Stablecoins’ are such a new and innovative concept.

We also hear from these issuers that the breakdown of their reserves must be a total secret.

So why aren’t “blockchain” based so-called “Stablecoins” just copying the SPAXX, which collects hundreds of millions of dollars in fees before passing the remainder to SPAXX ‘hodlers’.

Good question.

And what are you getting by holding Tether and letting them keep all of the interest for themselves?

Government (SEC) regulations seem to be around the corner for stablecoins. This definitely adds legitimacy and reduces the likelihood of a black swan Tether rug-pull situation. We'll see what happens from here:

Democratic lawmaker unveils bill that would define boundaries for stablecoin market

New Jersey Rep. Josh Gottheimer unveiled an early draft of legislation aimed at placing definitions around stablecoins.

A draft released by Gottheimer’s office proposes to designate certain digital currencies as “qualified” stablecoins if they can be redeemed on a one-for-one basis for U.S. dollars.

The world’s biggest stablecoin has dropped below its $1 peg

Tether sank to as low as 98 cents Thursday morning, according to data from CoinGecko.

It’s meant to be pegged one-to-one to the U.S. dollar.

Tether’s decline came after terraUSD, a different stablecoin, plummeted below 30 cents Wednesday.

Tether claims its stablecoin is now partially backed by non-U.S. government bonds

Tether started releasing quarterly financials after a 2021 settlement with the New York attorney general, which accused the company of lying about its stablecoin’s backing (Tether admitted no wrongdoing).

The documents are signed by MHA Cayman, a little-known accountancy firm based in the Cayman Islands.

Some economists and investors aren’t convinced by Tether’s attestations and are calling for a full audit.

Tether’s accountant waves red flag

The language used by Tether’s accountant in the latest quarterly attestation report suggests it’s worried about the future existence of the stablecoin.

Tether has since undergone a sharp contraction since the May 9/10 collapse of the Terra stablecoin, with assets in Tether dropping from $83bn on May 11 to $73bn on May 21.

Tether withdrawals top $10 billion as regulators raise alarm about stablecoins

Regulators and economists have long questioned whether Tether has enough assets in its reserves to justify its stablecoin’s purported peg to the dollar.

The company previously claimed tether was backed one-to-one by dollars in a bank account, but subsequently revealed it was using other assets including commercial paper — short-term corporate debt — and even digital tokens as collateral after a settlement with the New York attorney general.
