The global crypto market has faced a sharp decline as the market took a speedy turn. The value of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others has changed speedily due to the meltdown. The ongoing crash has been the result of midterm elections in the US and the resulting macroeconomic change. As the overall market has faced hard times, crypto has been no exception. The situation seems likely to continue as there will be little positive change in the coming days.
Circle CEO Allaire has called the FTX crisis crypto’s ‘Lehman Brothers’ moment. He has referred to the current situation as being resemblant to Lehman Brothers which resulted in offsetting the 2008 financial crisis. The FTX insolvency crisis has resulted in the crypto market turmoil which has affected various coins. The current situation has a close resemblance to how someone has helped develop technology and was later involved in activities that led to its own decline.
Allaire said that Circle’s USDC hasn’t been affected by the current crisis. He referred to it as the largest stablecoin and any negative change that affects it could be catastrophic. Allaire emphasized that USDC is used across the globe and fully backed by government treasury bonds and cash. The native token of FTX has fallen 80% and Binance is likely to buy it.
