BTCS Confirms No Exposure In Excess of FDIC Limits to Recent Bank Failures
Silver Spring, MD, March 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BTCS Inc. (Nasdaq: BTCS) (“BTCS” or the “Company”), a blockchain technology-focused company, has issued a statement on the recent failures of Silicon Valley Bank, Silvergate Bank, and Signature Bank. Although BTCS did not have any accounts or exposure to either Silicon Valley Bank or Silvergate, as of Friday the Company had an amount equal to approximately the FDIC-insured limit of $250,000 at Signature Bank.
Charles Allen, CEO of BTCS, stated, “Crypto was born out of the 2008 financial crisis, teaching us an important lesson – custodying your own assets is one of the safest ways to protect your wealth. Crypto exchanges and banks have failed. At BTCS, we offer a non-custodial solution for crypto enthusiasts to participate in blockchain consensus mechanisms, generate rewards, maintain control of their assets, and mitigate risks associated with bank or exchange failures.”
BTCS provides a non-custodial solution for crypto holders to earn rewards by directly participating in blockchain consensus mechanisms. By maintaining control of their assets, delegators are not at risk of exchange or bank failures, which unfortunately have recently been a common occurrence in both the crypto and financial industries.
BTCS Inc. is a Nasdaq listed company operating in the blockchain technology space since 2014 and is one of the first U.S. publicly traded companies with a primary focus on blockchain infrastructure and staking.
