What do you make of Gary Gensler and SEC Warning against investing in Crypto as BTC ETF Approval Looms?


Recommended Posts

It is obvious that Crypto is winning the battle against SEC as there are high expectations on a possible spot Bitcoin ETF approval. Many exchanges, enthusiast and analysts are counting down to tomorrow (10/01/2024) as we await a response from the US SEC. Recently, Gary Gensler has turn to crypto adviser on X by tweeting advise to investors, encouraging investors not to FOMO or invest in crypto. Some crypto ethusisast on X claim this approach is his last draw of the straw in an attempt to discourage people since the approval is inevitable. 

US SEC investor ED recently took to their X handle to advice investors to Say “NO GO to FOMO” they further advised that “Just because others might buy a particular investment, doesn’t mean it’s the right opportunity for you”. Does this means that the approval is imminent? We know that SEC could still deny the application but they would need to do so with a valid reason different from the previous ones. Remember in August, a federal judge ordered the SEC to revisit a spot BTC ETF application from Grayscale claiming the commission was “arbitrary and capricious” in denying the investment vehicle.

To be honest, the effect of the approval was not felt. its almost as though the whole thing was over estimated

Yup, that maybe the case. But I think wall Street giants haven't adopted the BTC ETF yet! Whatever, I'm enjoying the volatility at Bitget!

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
