The US Trustee reportedly warned BlockFi counsel on March 6 that the company needed to "immediately take steps to safeguard these funds in compliance with" the depository agreement, because a MMMF was not in compliance. BlockFi responded that the account was FDIC insured (up to the FDIC's $250,000 limit), but the Trustee maintains that that is not accurate.
Bankrupt BlockFi has at least $227 million at collapsed Silicon Valley Bank
BlockFi, which has been in bankruptcy since shortly after the November FTX collapse, appears to have exposure to the collapsed Silicon Valley Bank. According to a court filing, approximately $227 million in BlockFi funds has been kept in one of several accounts the company maintained at Silicon Valley Bank. The account is a money market mutual fund, meaning it is not FDIC insured.
