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!

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
    • A significant turning point in the #PORTALxBitget collaboration is the listing of $PORTAL on Bitget through the Candybomb event, which opens up benefits and synergistic prospects like 1. Diversified Trading choices: Users now have access to a wide range of trading choices thanks to $PORTAL's listing on the exchange, including cutting-edge leveraged trading capabilities and spot trading. This gives customers the freedom to interact with $PORTAL in a way that suits their preferred level of risk and trading techniques. 2. Community Synergy: By uniting the exchange users and the pre-existing $PORTAL community, the Candybomb event stimulates community engagement. Through this synergy, a positive environment surrounding #PORTALxBitget may be developed, encouraging cooperation, information exchange, and sustained interest in the project. Could this recent collab stimulate the  stage for a fruitful and mutually beneficial relationship between #PORTAL and exchange.
