How to get a Hive Account

When the US Government doesn't have enough money raised through tax revenues to cover the spending, it sells *Treasuries to make up for the deficit. These debt obligations are interest bearing.

The issuer is the US Department of Treasury.

There are three types:

Bills - Maturity under 1 years Notes - Maturity between 1 and 10 years Bonds - Maturity 10 - 30 years

The rate on Treasuries is what are used to form the yield curve.
