Silvergate, a bank holding firm and the parent company of Silvergate Bank has verified a least exposure to a digital asset lender BlockFi.

On November 29, technical expert and Swiss investor Walter Bloomberg stated to his 622K Twitter followers “Silvergate Capital stated to have lent funds to BlockFi,” but was not successful to give any proof. Others have been included in the FUD fest with many Tweets in the last week, although, many of them were shorting particulars.
