Republican Senator Pat Toomey alleged that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is asking banks to chorus from offering providers and increasing credit score to crypto firms.
The Pennsylvania senator wrote a letter searching for clarification to Martin Gruenberg, director and appearing chairman of FDIC.
The senator discovered through a whistleblower that “personnel in the FDIC’s Washington, D.C. headquarters are urging FDIC regional offices to send letters to multiple banks requesting that they refrain from expanding relationships with crypto-related companies, without providing any legal basis for sending such letters.”
The letter asks Gruenberg to account for these accusations and supply documentation of FDIC’s work with crypto as properly.
According to the whistleblower studies, the FDIC can also be ‘abusing its supervisory powers to deter banks from extending credit to crypto-related companies.’
The FDIC is likely one of the two federal companies insuring financial savings in American depository establishments. Back in April, the FDIC revealed that federal insurance coverage is excluded for crypto firm failures.
