So, according to @CBOE, five firms: ✅ @vaneck_us ✅ @InvescoUS ✅ @Fidelity ✅ @21Shares ✅ @FTI_DA will launch a spot $ETH ETF on July 23rd. I expect there to be more. This is a great step forward for crypto as an asset class. But, let’s look at the today’s staking yield that will be left on the table 👇 To learn more: coindesk.com/indices/ether/…

$ETH’s staking yield continues to rise ahead of the imminent spot ETF launch. Too bad investors will be forced to leave that juicy real yield on the table. CESR, the composite ether staking rate, is up 32bps since July 13th. @CoinDesk Indices 🤝 @coinfund_io

With the imminent launch of the spot $ETH ETF on the horizon, it looks like activity is picking up across the Ethereum ecosystem with priority transaction fees rising....#CESR, the composite ether staking rate, is up 24bps since 7/13.

Great to talk #crypto markets with Remy Blaire at the NYSE on FINTECH.TV. The imminent $ETH ETF will bring a new generation onchain in search of the yield that will be restricted. #CESR https://www.fintech.tv/News/Detail/8235-progress-in-crypto-legislation-with-chris-perkins-managing-partner-and-president-of-coinfund

With over 900mm users on Telegram, the Ton blockchain is something to watch. Excellent thoughts from @coinfund-io CIO Alex Felix. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/newsletters/2024-06-11/telegram-games-like-hamster-ceo-suggest-that-crypto-s-killer-app-might-be-games

It's an honor to represent @CoinFund on the CFTC Global Markets Advisory Committee led by Commissioner Caroline D. Pham. Working through regulatory recommendations on crypto isn't easy (especially in the absence of legislation), but we continue to thoughtfully engage in an effort to seek principle-based outcomes.

The veto of SAB-121 was a tactical defeat for the crypto industry, but the bipartisan support achieved during Congressional passage was a material, STRATEGIC victory that resonates much louder. Gonna be ok.

Amazing! #CESR is bringing the utility of the $500tr interest rate derivative market to crypto. Congrats to @nonco_otc, @BastionTrading and @CoinDesk Indices for continuing to trailblaze. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/nonco-and-bastion-trading-complete-ethereum-staking-rate-swap-using-cesr-302160161.html

The political tide is shifting. @realDonaldTrump's embrace of crypto on the right and @mcuban's warning to democrats on the left has demonstrated that the #crypto community will play an important role in swing states as we approach the election.

Regulatory clarity will unleash crypto innovation, and good regulation starts with legislation--that makes jurisdictional boundaries clear and protects consumers. I'm thankful that we are making progress in the U.S., and I'm supportive of #FIT21.

Yes, national security matters. No, crypto is not a threat to U.S. national security any more than the internet itself. The greatest threat to national security is the economic fallout of policies that indict innovation and technology, thereby allowing adversaries to take lead.

Law enforcement loves crypto. I spoke to a friend at @INTERPOL_HQ today who works on child trafficking cases. "Crypto is the best. We get actionable insights that lead us to criminals around the globe. Blockchain is a terrible technology if you are a criminal trying to do something bad."
