11. **Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP)**: The Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP) allows banks to borrow large sums of money using insolvent bonds as collateral at face value even if the market value is much lower. As of the end of August 2023, the total amount borrowed through the program has exceeded $150 billion dollars. This program, due to be repaid in March 2024, will put as much as $2 trillion of funds into the US banking system to help struggling banks ease the liquidity crunch of daily operations.They are throwing bad money at worse money. The Federal Reserve knows a massive banking crisis is coming and they are kicking the can down the road by manipulating the dollar and that is why the world is dumping it at record pace! Now is the time to get prepared! In times of financial stress, gold and silver serve as safe-havens, preserving your wealth outside traditional banks. Physical gold and silver protect your wealth when banks, including potentially insolvent ones, borrow substantial sums through programs like the Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP). They preserve your wealth by retaining value, acting as safe-havens during financial stress, and diversifying your assets beyond traditional banks. Importantly, there's no counterparty risk, meaning you don't rely on anyone else's liability for the security of your precious metals. 12. **The Deposit Insurance Fund**: The safety of your money in the bank is an illusion. Let's break it down: the FDIC manages “The Deposit Insurance Fund,” which holds a mere $116 billion. Sounds like a decent cushion, right? But brace yourself—there's a staggering $10.5 trillion in insured deposits and an additional $7 trillion in uninsured deposits lurking within the banking system. Now, picture the coming financial crisis strikes the banking sector. That deposit insurance fund will vanish faster than you can imagine. What comes next is alarming: "bail-ins." As an unsecured creditor, your hard-earned money essentially becomes a resource for the bank to cover its losses. Enter physical gold and silver. These precious metals have an unblemished record of preserving wealth during crises. They're a fortress against currency devaluation, inflation, and yes, the very real threat of bank failures. They are your lifeline when the bank's safety net proves to be nothing more than a frayed rope. A Hoover Institution report by Prof Seru and a group of banking experts calculates that more than 2,315 US banks are currently sitting on assets worth less than their liabilities. The market value of their loan portfolios is $2 trillion lower than the stated book value. Are you willing to take the risk with your money getting vaporized in the bank, or will you choose the security and value of physical gold and silver? The answer will define your financial future.
