1/ IT'S OFFICIAL!!! Welcome to #Wyoming, @krakenfx!

🐙+🤠=🔥🚀🎉

What a win-win for #crypto & Wyoming! As of **NOW** Kraken has a US bank charter—a 100% reserves-required, audit required (w/ #ProofOfReserves), custody via legal bailment, no #rehypothecation type of bank!🤠
2/ The vote of #Wyoming's Banking Board just concluded & it was UNANIMOUS! It took 27 months for the first #Wyoming SPDI to obtain a charter—congrats to the dozens of people who made it happen, esp @GovGordon, @TylerLindholm & Wyoming legislators & the Wyoming Division of Banking
3/ I’ll be back w/ more analysis later. Next applicant in line for #Wyoming SPDI is @AvantiBT later this Fall (more are on the way). But today is @krakenfx's day. As a shareholder, I'm so happy for @jespow & Kraken team! Applications for this charter opened a yr ago--took longer

1/ JUST READ opinion in latest lawsuit against #crypto exchanges/custodians over whether customers are owed forks/airdrops. As discussed on podcasts (@APompliano, @PeterMcCormack, @stephanlivera, @PrestonPysh+others), these contracts tend to be 1-sided...
law.justia.com/cases/californ…
2/ ...& judges generally will uphold the contract to which parties agreed, so breach of contract & conversion claims not likely to win (& they aren't). This is why these 1-sided contracts are a prob for institutional investors who owe a #fiduciary obligation to their customers...
3/ ...a fiduciary asset manager who agrees to a vague, 1-sided contract will get sued by its clients for breach of fiduciary duty if something goes wrong (& if it's an #ERISA fund, that fiduciary has PERSONAL liability & will be sued personally, not just sued professionally)...

1/ MORE ANALYSIS-Goldman's new head of #digitalassets is a #repo trader based in LONDON. This is significant bc UK law basically has no limits on #rehypothecation. To be clear I'm not worried abt #bitcoin--as a system it's immune to WallSt's leverage games
2/ That doesn't mean its price won't be impacted tho--bc #rehypothecation fulfills real demand w/ artificially created supply & thereby suppresses price, all else equal. Rehypothecation works as long as there's a lender of last resort. But #bitcoin has no lender of last resort!🚧
3/ So, how many times could a #bitcoin be rehypothecated? In UK there's basically no limit bc the broker/dealer takes outright title to the customer's asset. This is why Lehman transferred so many of its assets to its UK subsidiary from its US subsidiary. kramerlevin.com/en/perspective…

Lots of attention on the @peabodyenergy announcing it has devalued the North Antelope Rochelle Mine (NARM) by $1.4 billion. Billion with B. For those following along, here is a thread with some background and additional context of why this is such a big deal. (1/?)
@peabodyenergy For good coverage of Peabody's NARM #coal mine announcement from yesterday, check out stories from @taykuy @MicahMaidenberg @camillereports @The_News_Record and @FT And here is our statement
@peabodyenergy @taykuy @MicahMaidenberg @camillereports @The_News_Record @FT The NARM #coal mine is huge. The largest in the world, in area. It takes 2 inspectors from @Wyoming_DEQ to be able to cover it all. You can see it from space with satellite imagery.

1/ JUST BACK from an amazing #roadtrip across my beautiful native state. Here’s #YellowstoneFalls from Artist’s Point—yep, this is real.

Next—warning, I’ll post photos of historically important firearms at Buffalo Bill Museum in Cody, #Wyoming to illustrate 2 points about tech. Image
2/ Point #1: after centuries of no major advancement in firearms tech, a MASSIVE innovation occurred w/in a 10-yr period right before the US civil war & it’s visible in this exhibit. Invention of the repeating rifle changed the world—literally. Details abt why aren’t important... Image
3/ ...for this tweetstorm. What matters is that the invention MASSIVELY advanced tech in the industry by rendering everything that came before it utterly obsolete.

The analogy to payment/ledger technology is obvious. This is what #blockchain is doing to legacy payment systems.

1/ GAME ON! The @USOCC's announcement that it's following #Wyoming by allowing national banks to custody #digitalassets is GREAT news for #crypto! Long overdue & hopefully will help U.S. regain ground it lost to other developed world countries by dilly-dallying for so long.
2/ Winners=customers & #crypto VCs. This will spur M&A boom as US banks acquire #digitalasset custodians. Most must sell bc:
a. trust co. charters now obsolete &
b. #BitLicense now obsolete 👏

bc @USOCC leapfrogged 'em. Custodians now MUST have a bank charter to be competitive.
3/ But @USOCC didn't leapfrog #Wyoming, bc we already offer a bank charter.🤠

What's the distinction? A bank license was **ALWAYS** the optimal US regulatory structure for crypto custodians--not a trust charter or #BitLicense. Bank charters are SO much better for #crypto custody

1/ EPIC DOUG AGAIN TODAY☕️No one deserves a victory lap more than Doug for predicting the carnage from burst credit bubble-but he doesn't. Class act. He focuses on what's next. Reading it makes me proud of #Wyoming for enacting a 100% reserve bank charter.
creditbubblebulletin.blogspot.com/2020/03/weekly…
2/ SORRY NEW YORK, the center of finance in US is about to decentralize to places like #Wyoming (yep🤠), which are already in process of standing up new banks w/ pristine balance sheets, carrying no legacy from prior mess. (Disclosure: I'm working to set up one & so are others.)
3/ NEVER HAS THE NEED for new banks w/ pristine balance sheets been clearer. As Doug points out, bubble finance is OVER. Deleveraging isn't done yet. There's no locomotive in the world to enable re-inflation of the prior bubble (nope, not even China-whose debt bubble also burst).

INTRODUCING AVANTI's LEADERSHIP TEAM! @kanzure CTO, @zshimko COO, Chuck Thompson CLO/CCO, Britney Reddy chief of banking ops/CFO. We've seen A LOT MORE interest in what we're doing, given the environment, & many have expressed a wish that we were already in biz. We're sprinting!
2/ Many know @AvantiBT's CTO, #Bitcoin Core dev @kanzure, who has a track record of building a secure #bitcoin custody platform for @ledgerx + created Bitcoin Vaults (a pre-signed anti-theft recovery & clawback mechanism for bitcoin). He prvsly worked w/ tech partner @Blockstream
3/ Many also know @AvantiBT's Chief Legal Officer/Chief Compliance Officer, Chuck Thompson, who worked w/ @kanzure at @ledgerx. Chuck helped build reg compliance program there + has consulted since. We almost crossed paths at @MorganStanley & have known each other since 2015.

1/ INTRODUCING AVANTI BANK, a new US #bank to serve #digitalasset industry, offering new products & svcs not currently available in USD mkts along w/ tech partner @Blockstream. #Wyoming-based. We’re preparing long process of charter application & aim to open early 2021. @AvantiBT
@Blockstream @AvantiBT @adam3us 2/ Co-founder/team news soon. I’ve founded @AvantiBT w/ key support from top people in #crypto + important innovators from traditional finance. Seed funding round recently closed. Avanti will serve institutional customers that need services around #Bitcoin & #cryptoassets.
@Blockstream @AvantiBT @adam3us 3/ A critical piece of US mkt infrastructure is missing—a regulated #bank that can act as bridge to Fed for pymts + custody #crypto for BIG institutional money (pensions/endowmts/foundtns/corps/sov wealth) who need this b4 entering #crypto in a big way. Regulation had blocked it.

1/THINKING MORE abt @HesterPeirce’s proposal for a token safe harbor, which really does advance the ball re US SEC issues. As per my pvs tweets, there are issues that still need to be addressed—basic one is whether the tokens are presumed securities during the safe harbor or not.
2/ If yes, then the proposal opens at least 2 cans of worms—the custody question + creates probs for issuers outside the US (where many countries recognize that tokens aren’t necessarily securities but if the US thinks they’re securities then other countries may follow)...
3/ The custody question is YUGE. If they’re presumed securities, then the Custody Rule & Customer Protection Rule probably apply. This means custodians must provide “good control location” (among other obligations), but there’s zero clarity on what that means for security tokens.

1/ NEWS out of #Wyoming ahead of #ConsensusInvest, previewed by Chris Land, gen. counsel of WY Banking Division at #FordhamLaw #blockchain regulation conf today:(1) solution to #BitLicense prob for #crypto cos=open a NY branch of a WY SPDI; (2) Wyoming just released custody rules
2/ Chris explained today that #Wyoming #SPDI, which is a state-chartered bank, is a passport into ~42 US states w/o need for addl state license. In the other states, such as NY, it may need to open a branch. Federal law protects parity of national banks & state-chartered banks...
3/ ...of other states, so if a state exempts a national bank from a regulation, then other state-chartered banks are exempt from it too. Thus...drum roll...since NY law exempts national banks from the #BitLicense, #Wyoming's #SPDI almost certainly exempt too (NOT LEGAL ADVICE!)
