1/ The Senate Banking Comm staff reached out last week regarding @Facebook @Libra pursuant to my @ForbesCrypto article. During a conf call they indicated interest in receiving formal testimony from me. Here it is + summary follows ๐Ÿ‘‡: forbes.com/sites/caitlinlโ€ฆ @DoWithCare
2/ Big takeaway--politicians that weaponize the US banking system (blocking access to disfavored industries/countries) are modern-day Herbert Hoovers bc these barriers block both unlawful & LAWFUL commerce, & these barriers caused the invention of #stablecoins in the first place.
3/ (OK, I didn't actually call them modern-day Herbert Hoovers the testimony, but I digress...) If Congress isn't happy about @facebook @Libra, it can immediately make #stablecoins irrelevant by letting #banks bank the #crypto industry (& I give v specific recommendations here:

1/16) Congratulations @bitfinex !



THREAD: @Tether_to 's risk is completely misunderstood and underestimated. Here is a scenario which is not unlikely to happen, we hope it won't.
2/16) There is a 5 step playbook that has played out many times before that could see Tether potentially lose everything. The biggest risk with Tether was NEVER that they didnโ€™t have enough funds. The risk was regulatory.

Since Stablecoins have been coming out left and right I wanted to dive into them and add my own analysis.

I draw on info from @stablecoinindex, and a recently released report from @blockchain

Here is the thread!๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ
Fundementally, i think centralized fiat backed stable coins are a temporary solution within the crypto space. Because of that they don't interest me quite as much as their decentralized counterparts.

Some crypto use cases
-Fiat onramp
-Store of Value inbetween trades
