Exposure in the collapse of lender Silicon Valley Bank is starting to be reported in the financial industry.
The cryptocurrency firm Circle has $3.3 billion of its $40 billion USD Coin reserves at the lender shutdown by regulators on Friday.
Circle reported the exposure in a tweet.
The collapse is the largest bank failure since the 2008 financial crisis and has stranded billions of dollars belonging to companies and investors.

Circle said in another tweet on Friday that it and USDC continue to operate normally while it waits to see how SVB’s receivership will affect its depositors.
Companies including Binance, Tether, Gemini and stablecoin issuer Paxos have all said they do not have relationships with SVB.
