Cboe encourages SEC to allow bitcoin ETFs

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Cboe Global Markets, the first to launch bitcoin futures, would like the Securities and Exchange Commission to allow cryptocurrency exchange-traded funds.
  • Cboe encourages the Commission to approach Cryptocurrency ETPs [exchange-traded products] holistically and from the same perspective that it has historically approached commodity-related ETPs, the derivatives exchange said Friday in a letter to the SEC, published online Monday.
  • The Commission should not stand in the way of such ETPs coming to market given Cboe’s arguments for addressing the SEC’s concerns, the letter said.
  • He said Cboe expects trading volumes in bitcoin futures markets to soon reach levels comparable to those of other commodity futures products at the time that they were included in ETPs.
  • Cboe became the first major exchange to launch bitcoin futures on Dec. 10 and applied later that month with the SEC to list six bitcoin-related exchange-traded funds.

Cboe Urges U.S. Regulators to Move Forward With Bitcoin ETFs

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • NEW YORK U.S. securities regulators should not stand in the way of exchange-traded funds that hold cryptocurrencies like bitcoin from coming to the market as they are essentially the same as other ETFs that hold commodities, said exchange operator Cboe Global Markets.
  • The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said in January that significant investor protection issues needed to be examined before bitcoin-based ETFs could be offered and it also had concerns around how the products would be priced, stored and safeguarded.
  • Cboe’s letter said the exchange believes that the vast majority of these concerns can be addressed within the existing framework for commodity-related funds related to valuation, liquidity, custody, arbitrage, and manipulation.
  • The March 23 letter was signed by Cboe President Chris Concannon.
  • Cboe believes ETFs would give investors a more transparent and accessible way to get exposure to cryptocurrencies than the spot market.

The rise and fall of bitcoin

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Perhaps the best way of understanding bitcoin is through a model of how bubbles operate.
  • The classic model, developed by Hyman Minsky and elaborated by Charles Kindleberger, a historian who studied bubbles, has five stages: displacement, boom, euphoria, financial distress and revulsion.
  • A boom then occurs and drags in more and more investors; at some stage, we reach euphoria, where the boom is widely known to the public and there is talk about those who made millions from the trade.
  • In the euphoria stage, people buy because others are buying and because they anticipate being able to sell quickly at a higher price.
  • Investors may well reflect that bitcoin had not become a means of exchange for day-to-day transactions, has not proved to be a reliable store of value and thanks to the proliferation of cryptocurrencies, does not really benefit from a limited supply.
