The Securities and Exchange Commission has no authority over cryptocurrencies, says the CFTC commissioner

Against the background of the broadening of the scope of supervision of the cryptocurrency industry by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, the Commissioner for Commodity Futures Trading argues that the regulation of cryptocurrencies does not fall within the competence of the SEC.

Melanion Capital launches the first regulated ETF on BTC in Europe

According to the Financial Times, the French asset management company is preparing to launch an EU-regulated trading fund that will monitor the price of BTC. The Melanion ETF will be one of the first products on the European market to allow investors to work with highly volatile assets through investment funds.

The new ETF will monitor up to 30 shares of the cryptocurrency and blockchain mining industry, which Melanion says is up to 90% correlated with the BTC price.

The launch of these investment products most likely means the gradual take-up of digital assets that were not previously welcomed by financial regulators and institutional investors.

Winston Penhall, a fund lawyer at London’s Keystone Law, said the newly released ETF was the first cryptocurrency investment product in Europe to operate under the Collective Investment in Transferable Securities Directive (UCITS).
