- SEC approves spot Bitcoin ETFs: A historic moment for mainstream crypto integration.
- Bitwise and VanEck donate 10% ETF profits to Bitcoin development: Philanthropy meets finance.
- Meme Moguls emerges as the world’s first meme-backed stock market, aiming for 100x growth.
After the US Securities and Exchanges Commission’s (SEC) spot Bitocin approval, Bitwise, a major asset management player, has declared its intention to donate 10% of the profits from its recently approved Bitcoin ETF, BITB, to the development of Bitcoin’s open-source ecosystem.
This philanthropic move follows a similar commitment from VanEck, adding a new dimension to the intersection of traditional finance and cryptocurrency. Meanwhile, the emergence of Meme Moguls, a crypto platform integrating memes with trading, promises a unique venture in the crypto space.
SEC approves spot Bitcoin ETFs
In a historic move, the US Securities and Exchange Commission approved spot Bitcoin ETFs, marking a monumental moment in the financial world. This approval opens the floodgates for investors to directly participate in the cryptocurrency market through exchange-traded funds, providing a more regulated and accessible avenue for BTC investment.
This decision triggered a surge in Bitcoin prices, briefly touching the $47,000 mark. Analysts anticipate increased capital inflow into the cryptocurrency space as investors, both institutional and retail, explore these newly approved financial products.
As the market speculates on potential pullbacks, the SEC’s endorsement signifies a growing acceptance and integration of cryptocurrencies into mainstream financial instruments.
Bitwise and VanEck 10% profit donation for Bitcoin development
Bitwise’s commitment to donating 10% of BITB profits to Bitcoin development echoes a similar initiative by VanEck, another prominent financial institution. Both companies pledge to direct a percentage of their ETF profits to support the open-source development of Bitcoin, showcasing a shared vision for the cryptocurrency’s sustained growth.
Bitwise, having filed for a spot Bitcoin ETF five years ago, sees the recent approval as a significant milestone. The company envisions BITB as the ETF best suited for the evolving crypto landscape, and this philanthropic endeavour aligns with its dedication to fostering a robust Bitcoin ecosystem.
