Tether bankrupt?

See you guys at 1k?  Sad

Wut??

I doubt it's bankrupt. Bitfinex and tether just switched from using Puerto Rico’s Noble Bank International to using the HSBC and ING banks.

It's Puerto Rico’s Noble Bank International that's searching for a buyer after losing Bitfinex and tether as clients.

The HSBC and Dutch ING banks are better banks to do business with.

That makes sense. IF Tether really had almost three billions liquid in bank accounts and then they are moved to a different bank... There's not much banks that could take a liquidity hit like that.... no fucking way.

P.S.: In fact... No, I don't believe any single entity has 3 billion USD in liquid deposits in a single bank. Maybe I am wrong... If so, could anyone please correct me with an example of that instance?

Anyone ever been to Sri Lanka? Any suggestions on stuff to do there?

I'm flying there in the end of October for a couple of weeks, too bad I didn't check the weather before buying the tickets, the end of Oct and beginning of Nov are supposedly the rainiest periods, lucky me! Smiley

been there 2 years ago.... just enjoyed the very beautyfull nature down there, small river cruising on tiny boats with a local etc .... but the traffic is terriefying.
sick cheap as well there , Very nice country enjoy it.

Thanks for the reply. The beaches will be the main focus, batteries need to be recharged badly Smiley

Wonder if I can rent a bigger bike there (650cc+)?
probably you will ....

Apple have around $285 billion in cash reserves.  I doubt it's hidden under a mattress.

edit: some of its cash is in 'near cash' securities, such as bonds - but it is planning to make something like $38 billion in tax payments soon, so it much have a few bucks in cash (and in banks) just for that.

Wells Fargo must think 3 billion USD in liquid deposits is small change. The Fed stopped Wells expanding its deposits beyond $2tn without permission. It's having to reduce its $150bn pool of deposits from financial institutions and its $180bn portfolio of trading and short-term assets as a result.

Wells Fargo is expected to turn away billions of dollars of deposits as the US bank grapples with the effects of an asset freeze imposed by the Federal Reserve after years of wrongdoing.


Quote
In the first punishment of its kind, the Fed has prevented Wells from expanding its overall balance sheet — the third biggest in the country — beyond $2tn without prior regulatory approval.


Quote
The bank said it was likely to scale back a $180bn portfolio of trading and short-term assets, and also reduce a $150bn pool of deposits from financial institutions.

does seem odd in a relatively quiet environment like that

It is a tactic developed for communication in crowds without bullhorns or other amplification. 

It seems way less creepy when the scene is a loud ass riot and someone is trying to communicate what the cops are doing a block over.

Thx. Yup. Googled some about it and it seems that even if a big part is in corporate bonds and other semi-liquid investments, and also is spread over different banks worldwide.... it must probably have a few billions in at least one single bank.

So it seems the "Tether really having 3 billions in cash bank accounts" is, at least, plausible. If that is really the case, it seems wiser to move to a couple bigger banks to deposit the money instead of a single smaller one.

Bitcoin's volume is now only 3,2B dollars. Since December 2017 it has been this low during just few days.

I hope the volume gets higher or some price crash may happen.

Yes it did happen.  A crazy bot is being blamed.  But I suspect it is someone deliberately triggering stop losses / buy stops in illiquid € markets.  € markets are much thinner so easier to do this.

We saw the same whipsaw on Bitfinex only a couple of weeks ago. It will get more common as liquidity dries up.  

Easier to blame a bot so the exchanges don’t have to take responsibility for low liquidity.

Has anyone tried this?  https://cryptvast.com/
Interesting....Just don't ..it encourages this scammery.
Just like Cryptodouble from like 3 years ago. ( I'm ashamed to admit I gambled back then and did actually win some coin)
 Obvious ponzi and most who invest know it and just do it for the gamble.
Trick is to be in early enough and you will get paid before the inevitable cut and run when operator simply shuts down and makes off with the booty,
usually a week or so depending on how many fools "invest" hoping for a greater fool.

Well, a friend recommended and got several payouts, so I tried a minimum deposit.  It has doubled on the Blockchain, just not on my dashboard yet.
It's supposed to be straight-up bot trading....of course everything in BTC is a gamble!  Nothing ventured, nothing gained....
