Commissioner for the Securities and Exchange Commission of the United States (SEC) Hester Pierce said that her office was too cautious about the approval of exchange-traded funds (ETF) based on cryptocurrency and called for speeding up the process. Oinvest reports referring to Financial Times. https://preview.redd.it/0fdfd998ra231.jpg?width=745&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=68955bdd9fe7ba629da4c3c15c808a3633e2e4f6 Last month, Pierce has already said that the SEC "stifles the ETF with its personal attention, as if talking about babies." She said: “We need to keep an open mind about Fintech which might mean that we need to reconsider technologically outdated assumptions that underline currency laws. Fintech can mean many things to many people and its effect on how investors communicate with each other and transmit activities are important.” At the moment, asset managers who intend to launch an ETF must apply in accordance with the Investment Company Act (1940), which, according to many experts, is quite strict regarding cryptocurrency funds. It should be noted, that Pierce reiterated her support for the Bitcoin-ETF by Winklevoss brothers, whom the SEC refused last summer. In May, the agency once again postponed consideration of applications for the launch of Bitcoin-ETF by Bitwise Asset Management and VanEck / SolidX. Despite this, the NYSE Arca recently submitted to the SEC a request to change the rules for listing securities from an investment bitcoin trust managed by Wilshire Phoenix Funds. This is not the only company that intends to launch Bitcoin-ETF on the NYSE Arca. On May 9, the SEC received an application from Crescent Crypto Index Services LLC to create an index fund that should track not only the quotes of the first cryptocurrency, but also Ethereum.
