Bitcoin charted an increase of around 1% over the past 24 hours as it inched closer to $28,000. This is coming in a period where most of the altcoins are trading flat.

It’s also worth noting that the market developments of today happen on the back of news that Silicon Valley Bank is been acquired by a new owner and will be resuming operations today. The new owner is a financial institution based in North Carolina – First Citizens Bank & Trust Company.

The Bank’s offices will be opened today according to the press release by the FDIC:

”Today’s transaction included the purchase of about $72 billion of Silicon Valley Bridge Bank, National Association’s assets at a discount of $16.5 billion. Approximately $90 billion in securities and other assets will remain in the receivership for disposition by the FDIC”.
