Silicon Valley Bank Closed by State Regulators


Silicon Valley Bank was shuttered by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation on Friday, marking the second bank to shut down within days. The bank’s closure follows fast on the heels of competitor Silvergate’s voluntary liquidation earlier this week. “The Hash” panel discusses what this means for the crypto sector, as CoinDesk research shows that Blockchain Capital, Castle Island Ventures, Dragonfly and Pantera all had relationships with the bank.
