From a boost for Bitcoin’s chances at an ETF to a big giveaway at Tron, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.
The odds of a Bitcoin ETF approval may have just jumped significantly, now that Elad Roisman has been appointed as the SEC’s newest commissioner.
Roisman has called for the fair treatment of cryptocurrency in the past. “It is essential that the SEC approach these new challenges in a fair and transparent manner,” Roisman said, “provide clarity and certainty to the markets and investors, and enforce the laws and regulations that hold market participants accountable.”
Meanwhile, Coinbase is reportedly considering launching its own cryptocurrency ETF with Wall Street investment management firm BlackRock, according to a new report from Business Insider.
