From https://www.sec.gov/news/public-statement/peirce-dissent-34-83723

Quote
By precluding approval of cryptocurrency-based ETPs for the foreseeable future, the Commission is engaging in merit regulation. Bitcoin is a new phenomenon, and its long-term viability is uncertain. It may succeed; it may fail. The Commission, however, is not well positioned to assess the likelihood of either outcome, for bitcoin or any other asset. Many investors have expressed an interest in gaining exposure to bitcoin, and a subset of these investors would prefer to gain exposure without owning bitcoin directly. An ETP based on bitcoin would offer investors indirect exposure to bitcoin through a product that trades on a regulated securities market and in a manner that eliminates some of the frictions and worries of buying and holding bitcoin directly. If we were to approve the ETP at issue here, investors could choose whether to buy it or avoid it. The Commission’s action today deprives investors of this choice. I reject the role of gatekeeper of innovation—a role very different from (and, indeed, inconsistent with) our mission of protecting investors, fostering capital formation, and facilitating fair, orderly, and efficient markets. Accordingly, I dissent.

Hester M. Peirce, Commissioner

Well that... that is the fucking issue right there, isn't it. Just buy the fucking coins directly, investors! Sheesh, what is the problem? Coinbase and Gemini are offering custodial services for this very reason.

Just buy the goddamn coins and be done with it.

Oh... but you say you can't run derivatives against it and leverage up to the moon? You can't loan your shares out as collateral for other investments? Well too fkn bad. Buy the coins!

From towards the end of Peirce's dissent.  Evidently she understands the corn fairly well for your average bureaucrat. Emphasis mine.

Quote
By withholding approval of a bitcoin-based ETP because the underlying market insufficiently resembles the markets for other commodities, we set ourselves up as the gatekeepers of innovation. Securities regulators are ill-equipped to fill this particular role.[22] It is telling that the disapproval order’s analysis shows little consideration of the relatively advanced features of this still nascent market. For example, trading in bitcoin is electronic, which facilitates competition and price transparency.[23] Bitcoin are interchangeable, so that a purchaser is sure to get exactly the same thing no matter where she purchases it.[24] In addition, bitcoin mining is not geographically limited (except to the extent it migrates to places with cheap electricity), so it is not subject to geopolitical threats that plague other commodity markets.[25] Rather than considering the unique opportunity that these innovative characteristics of the bitcoin market present to investors, the order analyzes the ETPs through a legal and regulatory framework derived from prior approval orders for commodities with very different characteristics.

More like her please.

Nice. California Republican congressman on the House Foreign Relations committee, Dana Rohrabacher had a cosy dinner with Maria Butina.


Literally who gives a shit. Point me to one person in the world who gives a public shit about some random spy that got caught doing spy shit.

I just think it’s kinda cute how most of the Republican administration seems to be in bed with Russia.   Quite literally.  

It’s also fun to point out how many right wingers are traitors, prepared to sell democracy down the river for a few bucks.

I know right? It's like you can just feel the anger and tension in these photos, it's so palpable :

Despite Trumps latest backflip, I am confident the Russian secret service is not funding the DNC.

So if the rally was based on this ETF, can we expect to dump back to $6k now that it was rejected?

I just can't understand how someone like you found your way to somewhere like this.



You do realize that this is a movement to force free markets onto the world whether they like them or not? It's like the most opposite thing ever to agitating for societies to be dominated by the state.

All these social programs you love will be untenable when people are virtually untaxable thanks to blockchain tech.
There are always exceptions. It's a social science axiom, I'm pretty sure. We deal with averages, not individuals or anecdotes.

You do realize that question is straight out of the Russian propaganda textbook?  It’s hard to tell if you guys sincerely believe what you are saying or are just parrots without understanding.  

It is possible to stand up to Russia in the Crimea and not trigger a nuclear war.  Just like America could stand up to North Korea instead of being made a fool of.  

The Russian economy is the size of New York.  By allowing yourselves to be pushed around by a tin pot dictatorship is a joke.

So war, then. And now we know where you stand.

The rest of us prefer that russia and the united states of america work together for mutual benefit.

You are the enemy. And the most pathetic part of it all is that I wrote this post after simply watching the size of your post. You people always talk a lot but say very little, and upon properly reading it all then indeed, my first impression was correct.

You are the enemy, and you are pathetic.

I take that as pro-war. You would find many friends in the Republican Party who love war.

Bitcoin will make wars (especially long drawn out, meaningless wars) very difficult to fund.
