SEC commissioner disagrees with the SEC’s rebuttal of Bitcoin ETF request



Bitcoin SEC

It results clear that even though we have walked some steps towards having a better relationship with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the United States, still, we are separated from the ‘ideal’ of how it should actually be.

In fact, we have seen very severe regulations, as well as warning signals, that in most of the cases we can all agree are just not appropriate and even less, accurate. However, this is a story that seems to be only starting, and as I consider, there’s still so much to come.

In this sense, one of the latest news involving the crypto world and the SEC affects nothing less than the king of the cryptos in the market, Bitcoin (BTC). The crypto-king recently filed an application in which it requested SEC to deploy a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), the same that got rejected under arguments, and the rejection, even for a reputed SEC commissioner seems to be lacking fundament and coherence. Let’s see how it goes.

SEC statement regarding the Bitcoin ETF application

A couple of days ago the Securities and Exchange Commision (SEC) emitted a paper in which it made clear that the Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) request made by the Winklevoss twins, was not a thing they were willing to accept. According to the declarations, the main argument against the Winklevoss petition centers on the fact that they are unable to inhibit price manipulation with the ETF. The announcement specifies the following:

“The Commission addresses each of these arguments below. In Section III.B, the Commission addresses BZX’s assertion that bitcoin and bitcoin markets, including the Gemini Exchange, are uniquely resistant to manipulation and finds that the record before the Commission does not support such a conclusion.”

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) continued by saying that one of the main pieces of the ETF that the Winklevoss brothers proposed, centers on the Gemini exchange, which as they consider does not have the sufficient tools to prevent potential manipulations of the prices of the coin.

Hester Peirce declarations after SEC’s dictamen

After the dictamen of the SEC, it didn’t actually take that much for the SEC commissioner, Hester Peirce to make public her opinion on the subject. She made it clear as well that she was utterly in disagree with the conclusion of the SEC on the case. She stated:

An opinion that, of course, besides raising a huge wave of controversy, showed as well the perception of the commissioner with respect to Bitcoin.

It is evident that factually speaking, Bitcoin is definitely mature and reputed crypto that has the tools to avoid any adverse situation that may occur with the price of the token. However, a decision seems to be made already on the subject, so the only thing we can do is wait for another news around Bitcoin ETF and SEC. Stay tuned.

The Crypto Space Once Again Divided Over Bitcoin SV



Bitcoin SV

The crypto community is a strong one, one that managed to bring digital currencies from nothing to an industry worth hundreds of billions of dollars. However, while its strength in this regard is undeniable, the crypto community can be just as fragile given the appropriate conditions. With that in mind, the conditions seem to have been set for a new divide, although the cause is once again the same — Dr. Craig Wright and his Bitcoin SV (BSV).

Craig Wright vs. the (crypto) world

Dr. Craig Wright, the chief scientist at nChain, and the creator of Bitcoin SV. has been a well-known and very controversial figure in the crypto industry. Wright was suspected of being Bitcoin’s creator several years ago, which is possible because no one knows who is behind the name ‘Satoshi Nakamoto.’

Wright was believed to be him, and one theory claimed that he and his friend were responsible for giving life to BTC. However, the theory quickly died out, but not before Wright seemingly liked the idea of assuming the mantle of Nakamoto. He himself started claiming to be Bitcoin’s mysterious creator ever since.

Of course, he managed to gather up some followers, but the majority of the crypto community — while confused — did not believe him. Luckily, there is no need for trust, and Wright should easily be able to prove that he…

Are XRP and Ripple Going to Be Worth Anything by the End of 2019?




One surprise recently was when XRP took over Ethereum’s long-held second place in the Market Cap leaderboards. It quickly went back to its traditional and respectable third place behind Ethereum, but it could be a sign of things to come.

XRP has a lot of clout in the market because of the platform it is based on, which is Ripple. A coin that is used for a very specific purpose and with a long term goal in mind is always going to fare better than others. Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and others have come about because of disagreements in Bitcoin. Therefore they offer nothing except an alternative to Bitcoin as a pure cryptocurrency, while Ripple (and XRP along with it) has something tangible behind it.

Big Banks Back Ripple

Ripple was created in 2012 for a specific reason. It aimed to become a faster and more efficient method to transfer value between banks and countries. This value can be almost anything from currencies to other instruments. While initially, banks were cautious about investing in the company, recently they have been lining up. The crypto winter has helped with innovation int he industry and Ripple has benefitted immensely for it.

The various payment solutions based on Ripple such as xRapid and xCurrent are seeing a large uptake, and this is having an amazing effect on XRP as a whole.…

Many investors, speculators, and traders are rushing into the number one cryptocurrency; Bitcoin like never before. Other altcoins such as Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin are not dormant either.

Litecoin and Ripple also recorded some percentage increase in the tune of 53.20 percent and 16.12 percent respectively. It is no just these few popular coins that have gained in one week. From what we have gathered, 94 digital coins amongst the leading 100 cryptocurrencies are also experiencing the rise in price. This information is according to what TradingView published in April 2019.

According to them also, other cryptocurrencies gained in value while others declined. From their calculations, six digital currencies advanced while ninety-four was on the decline. Also, another information shows that the increase in Bitcoin price has reduced the value of other assets such as bonds and stocks.
