Then on November 17, 2022, The Bear Cave newsletter released an article about several companies with potential exposure to recently collapsed crypto currency exchange FTX, including Silvergate. The article highlighted the connection linking Silvergate to a money laundering operation that transferred $425 million off crypto currency trading platforms. Following this news, Silvergate’s Class A common stock price fell $3.00, or 10.7%, to close at $24.90 per share on November 18, 2022.
