  • Hester Peirce, Commissioner of the SEC, has published a letter of dissent regarding the SEC’s recent decision upholding the agency’s past ruling to deny the Winklevoss twins’ Bitcoin (BTC) ETF. The SEC denied the Bats BZX Exchange’s proposed rule change hoping to allow trading of the Winklevoss’ Bitcoin Trust shares, leading Peirce to say “I believe that the proposed rule change satisfies the statutory standard and that we should permit BZX to list and trade this Bitcoin-based exchange-traded product,” and that the decision “sends a strong signal that innovation is unwelcome in our markets.”1
  • SealBlock, a digital assets wallet provider, has recently launched a new hardware-based hot wallet.  This new wallet is unique because it is able to be programmed to protect private keys with certain signing policies, including the whitelist policy, amount limit policy, multi-signature policy, etc.  SealBlock can be connected to the internet 24/7, but has security abilities similar to those of cold wallets.
