SEC Rejects Grayscale Bitcoin Spot ETF

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has rejected Grayscale Investments’ Bitcoin Spot ETF application to convert Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). The SEC denied it because Grayscale failed to respond to SEC questions about preventing market manipulation, as well as other concerns.

For its part, Grayscale has vehemently argued that the SEC accepting a Bitcoin Future ETF but rejecting a Bitcoin Spot ETF is inconsistent. Because if the reason is to protect investors, the Bitcoin Future ETF fund will be more risky for investors.

So Grayscale sued the SEC almost immediately after it was dismissed. Since the respondent is the governing body, the case will go directly to the appellate court and a decision will be made within 9 to 12 months. Grayscale also recently hired attorney Donald B. Verrilli Jr., who previously served as an attorney general in the Obama administration, to lead this case with the SEC.

Bitcoin is not safe?

A report commissioned by the Pentagon concluded that blockchain is not decentralized, vulnerable to attacks, and is running outdated software. The Pentagon’s research team, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), has joined Trail of Bits — a security research organization — to investigate blockchain. Trail of Bits focuses on Bitcoin and Ethereum, the two leading cryptocurrencies in the global market.

According to the report, 60% of all Bitcoin traffic moves through only three ISPs (internet service providers). The second thing that is mentioned is that the three major mining pools today, ViaBTC, Pooling and Slushpool, account for 25% of BTC mining speed. But these mining pools are very sketchy when it comes to cryptographic security. Trail of Bits warns that the nodes used by cryptocurrency miners can easily be deployed using an inexpensive cloud server. Based on these, the report claims that the Bitcoin network is not secure.

However, these reports have been pointed out by many as irrational and not technically correct. It doesn’t matter if mining pools use cryptographic security. Because these ciphers are only used when sending signals such as mining speed on the network, but cannot be used to access or manage miners, etc. This password is not important and does not matter, it’s just part of the system design. About the node machines used to attack 51% is not true because the function of the node machine to store data cannot be used to attack.

Bitcoin has been around for more than 13 years and since then many people have wanted to attack 51% of BTC but have never been able to. Miners are also the beneficiaries and perform the protection of the network. And Bitcoin is old, but it is the most secure network among cryptos today.
