Arthur Hayes: Japanese banks' selling of U.S. bonds triggers speculation about dollar liquidity, and cryptocurrencies are expected to usher in a new round of bull market

BlockBeats news, on June 21, BitMEX co-founder Arthur Hayes published an analysis in his personal blog that Japan's fifth largest bank, Norinchukin Bank, recently announced that it would sell $63 billion worth of U.S. and European bonds. This indicates that other Japanese banks may follow suit and sell up to $450 billion in U.S. bonds in total.

Hayes pointed out that the reason why Japanese banks sold U.S. bonds in large quantities is that the U.S.-Japan interest rate differential has widened sharply, resulting in a sharp increase in the foreign exchange hedging cost of holding U.S. bonds, and holding these bonds has begun to lose money. In an election year, U.S. Treasury Secretary Yellen is likely to ask the Bank of Japan to absorb these sold bonds through the Fed's FIMA repurchase tool to avoid a sharp rise in U.S. bond yields and trigger financial market turmoil.

Hayes believes that if the Fed prints money on a large scale to buy back the U.S. bonds sold by Japan, it will bring a new round of U.S. dollar liquidity to the cryptocurrency market and boost a new round of cryptocurrency bull market. He said that in order to maintain the current dollar-based financial system, the supply of U.S. dollars must increase, which will undoubtedly push up the prices of crypto assets including Bitcoin.
