She went on to say that stablecoins and the gateways to DeFi were also in danger due to banking system instability. According to Cathie Wood, the regulator’s attention must be paid to the conventional banking system’s growing reliance on centralized, non-transparent points of failure.

Crypto Market Bounces Strongly
The CEO of Ark Invest pointed out that the financial regulators need to investigate the obvious signs of a catastrophe. With short rates increasing by a factor of 19 in a little over a year, there is now a mismatch between the asset and liability duration.
Wood reported that annual bank deposit growth has slowed for the first time since 1920. In light of Elon Musk’s observation, it seems this year has many characteristics with 1929.
Three crypto-friendly banks failing within a week dealt a severe blow to the global cryptocurrency economy. Bitcoin’s price fell below $20,000, while the whole market worth fell below $1 trillion.
