Binance’s CZ Doubts Banking System’s ‘Free Market’ Credentials

    Binance CEO CZ criticized the banking system for repeated bank failures in the wake of the Credit Suisse merger and the recent collapse of Silicon Valley Bank. The emergency merger between Credit Suisse and UBS Group are set to wipe out the Credit Suisse’s risky additional tier 1 bonds worth a total of $17.3 billion. Although the banking crisis wiped out massive value for investors in the stock market in last few weeks, the crypto market took a bullish turn.

    CZ Questions Free Market Credentials

    The Binance CEO raised doubts on how the ‘free market’ spirit requires new banks to operate in the same environment that is causing the failures. More importantly, CZ pointed that these bank failures prove to be costlier with new collapses. It may be recalled that crypto exchange Binance was subjected to difficulties earlier as hardly any US bank came forward to partner with it for the US Dollar support. He said in a latest tweet,

    “Every decade or so, the same banks fail. We keep them alive, then repeat. More costly each time. Meanwhile, it is incredibly difficult for new banks (to be approved) to enter the market to compete. New banks are also required to operate in exactly the same way as the old failing ones. Free market?”
