SEC on Bitcoin ETF
Jay Clayton, President of the SEC, was interviewed at Consensus Invest where he highlighted the long-awaited ETF Bitcoin proposed by VanEck. Mr. Clayton was skeptical about the approval of the Bitcoin ETF until the underlying markets were "free of risk or material risk of manipulation".
In order to dispel fears of price manipulation, VanEck recently announced that its Bitcoin ETF price index would use data from three of the largest OTC Bitcoin – Cumberland, Genesis Trading and Circle Trade markets – as they thought this index would be less likely to be put on the market. handling.
Launch of the world's first multi-asset cryptographic index FTE
The ETP Amun Crypto Basket started trading on the Swiss Six Stock Exchange last week and seems to have been well received by the market.
The ETP tracks the price of 4 cryptoassets – bitcoin, ether, XRP and litecoin – backed by an index provided by MVIS. Currently, FTE trades more than $ 400,000 per day, which, although small compared to large US FTEs, occupies a prominent place in the Swiss FTE markets.
Su Zhu, CEO of a hedge fund on foreign exchange trading, noted that a high proportion of investors use FTE for holding and not for trading. He also regards the HODL5 ETP as a "barometer of the natural interest".
Swiss HODL ETF update: the net entries represent a very high percentage of the volume. On November 23, with 27,244 shares, 20,000 shares were created and 16,727 on Nov. 26, for 15,000 shares. This means that users are waiting, not trading – so this is a $ 400,000 fram onramp per day. https://t.co/0WydLSKTJK
