RISE is one of the first blockchain projects to have its core code base written in TypeScript. RISE aims to offer developers Software Development Kits to enable the creation of Decentralized Distributed Applications.

On April 11 RISE TypeScript developer Andrea Baccega has published an announcement on Medium reporting that TypeScript Core 1.0.0 is now available for download. The RISE Core was reportedly written so that the inner-code dependencies were easier to both manage and test. The developer reported that the team did their best to write less and more maintainable code, also updating all third party dependencies.

The development team of the project has already started working on 1.1.0 version, where they will try to push the boundaries and achieve a fair amount of theoretical transactions processed per second without giving up on security. Moreover, they plan to renew and improve RISE wallet.

It is also worth noting that the RISE blockchain was integrated into Ledger Nano S hardware wallet.

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced the beginning of a formal process for considering the application for the creation of bitcoin-ETF from the New York companies VanEck and SolidX. Nevertheless, the agency appealed to the community for more information. This is stated in the document published on the SEC website.

Institution of such proceedings is appropriate at this time in view of the legal and policy issues raised by the proposed rule change. Institution of proceedings does not indicate that the Commission has reached any conclusions with respect to any of the issues involved. Rather, as described below, the Commission seeks and encourages interested persons to provide comments on the proposed rule change.

At the moment, the SEC received about 1,400 comments.

According to the document, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) has signed an agreement on the exchange of data on bitcoin transactions, trading and the state of the market with the cryptocurrency trading platform with Gemini.

The agency asked commentators to clarify the position of Gemini in the digital currency market and assess the likelihood of increased volatility at this site in connection with possible trades of bitcoin-ETF.

So, before September 30, the department had to decide on whether to approve, deny or initiate the proceedings. The SEC chose the latter, which is likely to delay the process until the next year.
