CeFiWire Most Read for June 23
What was news for the week ending June 23, 2023. CeFiWire recognizes all U.S. public holidays and did not publish on the Juneteenth holiday.
Last week may have been holiday shortened in the United States — thanks Juneteenth! — but there was no shortage of news. Much of that news was a reaction of players to regulators: INX and DigiShares both found partners that bring needed licenses to create distribution. Meanwhile, Deutsche Bank, CASEIS, and AsiaNext obtained regulatory oversight as next steps to new launches.
The biggest news, however, was sparked two weeks ago by BlackRock when it filed for its ETC. Last week a number of mutual fund sponsors — including Invesco, WisdomTree, Bitwise and Valkrie all filed for bitcoin ETCs.
Volatility Shares 2x Bitcoin Strategy ETF will start trading Tuesday morning after the SEC let the leveraged ETF based on the CME Bitcoin Futures price become effective on Friday.
Finally, EDX made waves when it confirmed that it started institutional trading on its digital assets platform. Much of the excitement was that Fidelity Digital assets, Charles Schwab and Citadel are tied to the company as early investors. Still, EDX has been in the works for months.
Looking ahead … we are waiting for to big news items that seem overdue. Both WisdomTree and Nasdaq promised second quarter launches for products and so far neither has made an announcement. This is the final week of the quarter so it is put up time for both entities. WisdomTree is prepping its WisdomTree Digital funds and Prime wallet launch. The folks at the Nasdaq have promised a licensed and fully-regulated digital assets exchange.
Also, look for news to come out of Zurich where the Point Zero Forum is taking place on Monday and Tuesday.
