Bitstamp, a bitcoin cryptocurrency exchange, have decided to provide trading support for the following three pairs: BCH/USD, BCH/EUR and BCH/BTC. The start is expected in the first week of December.

We have enabled Bitcoin Cash to meet our customer demands. Since we always try to remain neutral we didn’t have any unusual reservations, but we did want to make time to see how the market responded.

CEO, Bitstamp

Now Bitcoin Cash retains the third position in the market cap ranking and is currently trading near $1,570 per coin. As a consequence, more services are setting up support for bitcoin cash.

SEC to Start VanEck-SolidX BTC-ETF Consideration

Starting today, the 45-day countdown to the SEC initial decision was launched
20 February 2019   105

For the first time since August of last year, two proposals on the creation of a Bitcoin-ETF are under consideration by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The application of VanEck and SolidX, issued in cooperation with the Cboe BZX exchange, as expected, was included in the Federal Register issue this Wednesday, with which the 45-day countdown to the SEC initial decision was launched. The application of Bitwise Asset Management and NYSE Arca was published last week.

I … hope that our investment in regulatory and market education, hard work and commitment will be honored when the time comes.

The head of Bitwise’s research department, Matt Hogan, believes that not only firms that have submitted bids to create Bitcoin-ETFs are looking for approvals, but and the entire “extremely fast-growing” crypto industry.

A year ago there was maybe one qualified crypto custodian … and now there are half-a-dozen, and that number will go up from here. A little more than year ago, we didn’t have futures. A year ago we didn’t have nearly as many firms making markets. A few months ago, you didn’t have folks like Fidelity announced in the space. It’s evolving really, really quickly.

 As reported, ultimately, however, a bitcoin ETF approval will depend on how companies approach their proposals.
