SEC has no plans to ask appeals court to reverse spot bitcoin ETF ruling


Recommended Posts

So earlier today, I saw this article saying

"The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has no plans to ask the DC Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse a ruling that overturned the regulator's rejection of Grayscale Investment's bid to roll out spot bitcoin (BTC-USD) exchange-traded fund, Bloomberg reported Friday, citing a person with knowledge of the matter.

The August ruling, which paves the way for Grayscale to covert its bitcoin trust (OTC:GBTC) into an ETF, was said to have been made by only three of the judges on the court.

Many have contended that approval of such an ETF would result in broader institutional adoption, but that would also mean reduced volumes across crypto exchanges and increased volume among stock exchanges where these products would trade."

My question is, is the BTC ETF we are anticipating next year inevitable or it will be dragged till 2025? As it stands, SEC are not ready to give this option a go-ahead whatsoever

Well, investors will still need to hold a decent amount of the underlying asset as an insurance so, it's still gonna be okay across the exchanges especially exchanges with high liquidity like Binance, Bitget and OKX.

Overall, expectations are that approval might be delayed till January 2024 and all applications will be approved together leading to an estimated $3 trillion in investment funds into crypto. Better days are certainly ahead!!

Bitcoin Faces Death Cross as XRP Fails to Capitalize on Appeal Ruling

FEDERAL COURT DENIES INTERLOCUTORY APPEAL BY SEC

XRP had enjoyed a decent enough Q3 even if it failed to hold onto the gains made post the decision by Judge Torres. A lot of this was down to news that the SEC was to launch an interlocutory appeal, which seemed to have dampened the spirits of XRP bulls.

On Monday, October 3 the Federal Court denied the SEC request to certify its interlocutory appeal. Judge Torres stated that to grant the SEC’s request for a certification, she would have to find, among other matters, a controlling question of law for which there was a “substantial ground” for a difference of view. However, this was not the case here, she claimed.

However, the decision by Judge Torres has failed to capitalize on the decision with Ripple falling around 3.2% yesterday. This also could have been down to the broader risk-off sentiment which drove markets early on Monday.

Another reason why the drop off in XRP is particularly interesting is down to the recent decision by the Bank of International Settlement to add Ripple to its interoperability taskforce. This means that Ripple is now a part of the taskforce established for cross border payments. This should have been a huge positive for the payment service provider but has not yet materialized in the price of XRPUSD.

Looking at the crypto fear and greed index and we have seen a recovery over the past month from fear to neutral which is a slight positive for crypto markets as a whole.

There is a belief among many in the crypto space that with the ruling last week by Judge Torres the SEC could choose to drop their case. Given the disdain showed toward the crypto industry by the SEC i wouldn’t hold my breath and will rather wait for an official announcement on the matter.

I recently came across an analysis inline with your perception that also claims SEC  will approve ETF applications together and the writer predicted that this will push BTC to continue its usual price trend before halving (Retesting previous ATH).

I have been in few bear markets to understand the pain of bureaucratic process that slows down the pace of market prospect but the ETF approval will certainly happen but how and when is what's uncertain and I feel the later the better perhaps for selfish reasons cos I need to accumulate more alt and BTC before the mother of all bull run begins.

This a good read. I still believe that someday the SEC would realise they have been going for the wrong coins all along. I mean there are coins out there which haven't gotten through the expected regulations and are still circulatory in the crypto space.

Is a matter of when. XRP would get the recognition it deserved together with other coins like ETH, BGB and BTC (the king of them all) because of their versatile usage in different ways! Can't wait for that to happen

    • MON Protocol aims to be a leading developer and publisher of blockchain-native IPs and games. Their vision extends beyond traditional gaming ecosystems, as they seek to bring games and gaming characters onto the blockchain. MON is an ERC-20 fungible token that powers and governs fractionalized IP ecosystems.   30% of the total supply is allocated for community claims, emphasizing community-driven initiatives. While 29% of the total token supply is dedicated to fostering growth and sustainability within both the Pixelmon and MON Protocol communities. All one billion tokens will be fully unlocked within 48 months of the token generation event (TGE), which is anticipated to take place in Q1 2024. This gradual release underscores MON Protocol's commitment to transparency and ecosystem development. Will MON Protocol's unique approach to IP governance, combined with Bitget's strategic listing, positions it as a frontrunner in fostering community engagement and sustainable ecosystem growth?
    • Another reason I prefer DAX to other markets is that I am able to use my own profitable method on it, which I call "Reverse Trades." In it's simplest form it is a good Entry Point, which is used repeatedly for trades, for as many times as the market price returns to this Entry Point.  This is illustrated in the chart below for 22nd May. The best Reverse Trades occur when the market beats the Entry Price and then re-crosses the Entry Price. If this is not clear, feel free to write to me and I will explain in greater detail.
    • The gaming industry is one of the industries that has effectively leveraged the efficiency of blockchain technology to drive growth. A fiercely competitive sector, it takes unique innovative Ideas to stand out. When analysing the chances of infant GameFi projects to reach the heights, one project seems to have staked a claim to be soon held in the same breath as the leading projects– Param Labs. Param Labs, an AAA game and blockchain development studio is dedicated to creating top-tier blockchain-integrated games with player-owned digital assets, and is developing a modular gaming ecosystem, comprised of games and infrastructure.  Already a trending project thanks to the widespread participation of its airdrop, Param has gone on to strike partnership with Animoca Brands, a frontrunner for advancing digital property rights within gaming and the open metaverse; highlighting its wildfire-esque spread. While the buzzing community anticipate their airdrop reward, the news that it will launch on Bitget on 29th May amongst other exciting listings has spiked the anticipation. If you can relate, how excited are you with the imminent launch and what Param Labs brings to the gaming industry generally?
