CoinShares CSO: The SEC May Not Approve a Bitcoin ETF, Cryptocurrency Concerns Remain

CoinShares CSO Meltem Demirors was recently in CNBC'S Crypto Trader to talk about the crypto industry. When asked about her thoughts on Bitcoin ETFs, she noted that CBOE, SolidX, and VanEck ETF proposals would “absolutely not” be approved this year. She noted that underlying concerns about BTC ETFs like few proper security measures, manipulation risks, and lack of market surveillance remain. Arjun Balaji, who was part of the interview, differed with her opinion. Balaji believes a single asset ETF (probably Bitcoin) will go live. However, he is doubtful of a multi-asset ETF since the SEC still needs to rule on several leading cryptos. (KE)

Anthony Pompliano, the founder of Morgan Creek Digital Assets recently told CNBC that BTC is almost reaching its bottom. This comment comes after he spoke on BlockTV claiming that BTC could retest the $3,150 lows before plunging further.

St. Louis Federal Reserve says the Issuance of Crypto Assets will Push Bitcoin's Price Lower

A recent report from researchers at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis suggests that the issuance of crypto assets could push Bitcoin prices lower. The report titled “Whither The Price of Bitcoin?” proposes the idea that the existence of altcoins could pose a permanent threat to Bitcoin’s fiat value. The fact that new crypto assets are continuously minted means that the overall value of all cryptocurrency becomes diluted and the researchers believe that Bitcoin could diminish in value “relative to where it would have otherwise been.” The researchers pointed to Bitcoin’s market dominance collapse in recent years and while they believe Bitcoin is unlikely to capitulate to $0, altcoins could exert “significant downward pressure” on the purchasing power of all cryptocurrency.

Japan's Top Financial Regulator Denies Report that it is Considering the Approval of a Bitcoin ETF

A representative from Japan’s Financial Services Agency (FSA) has refuted recent Bloomberg reporting that Japan is considering the approval of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). The representative said, “There is no such fact that we are considering approving ETFs which track crypto-assets at present. We are not currently considering approving them.” The representative further explained, “there is no need for trading crypto-assets derivatives at financial instruments exchanges where many market participants are able to trade.” Since 2018, ten ETF applications have been rejected by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over concerns of manipulation, custody and investor protection. The possibility of Japan approving a Bitcoin ETF had raised hopes amongst U.S. investors but well known crypto-asset attorney Jake Chervinsky said that an overseas ETF approval would have minimal impact on the SEC’s decision to approve or deny an ETF.

Crypto Market Sharply Corrects as Bitcoin Drops Below $3,500

On Sunday Bitcoin dropped below $3,500 and $5 billion was liquidated from the crypto market. Ethereum and a handful of the top-10 cryptocurrencies also posted double-digit losses and Bitcoin is on the verge or revisiting 2019 lows. Prior to the Sunday’s downside move, a growing number of analysts pointed out that Bitcoin was showing weakness and a popular analyst named “Hsaka” suggested that “the first wick below the range low led to a tap of the range high. The second one has failed to reach that high as of now.” Consistently low volume has plagued the crypto market over the past 24-hours and some analysts are now suggesting that if there is not an uptick in purchasing volume, Bitcoin could drop below $3,000. At the time of writing, Bitcoin is down 3.20% and the price is $3,552. (RS)

New Scaling Technology Could Enable Full Bitcoin Nodes On Mobile Phones

A new scaling solution called “utrexxo” by Tadge Dryja, a cryptocurrency research scientist at the MIT Digital Currency Initiative could streamline and scale Bitcoin to a great extent. Currently, Bitcoin nodes must download the entire transaction history, which is heavy on storage. With utrexxo, users can verify transactions using a cryptographic proof instead of having to download the entire history. It minimizes the storage requirement to an extent that it would be possible to run a full Bitcoin on mobile phones. Ethereum researchers are investigating if Dryja's idea could be used on other scaling solutions such as plasma. (VS)
