The SEC Welcomes Your Comments on the Pending Bitcoin ETF

Back in mid July, Ethereum World News alerted the cryto community that they had a say in the ongoing rule change put forth at the SEC by the CBOE exchange, and with regards to the now famous Bitcoin ETF. What has happened since then, is that the SEC has admitted to having received an overwhelming amount of comments and letters from the public over the past few months.

In the public notice stating that they have started the review process of the CBOE sponsored Bitcoin ETF, the SEC announced the following with regards to requesting more comments from the public:

As of September 19, 2018, the Commission has received more than 1,400 comment letters on the proposed rule change.

[The] Commission seeks and encourages interested persons to provide comments on the proposed rule change.
