SEC Regulations and SEC Vision Are Two Completely Different Things: What Does It Mean for Ethereum?

sec and eth

The Securities and Exchanges Commission is the most influential organization in the US when it comes for crypto. If the SEC officially disapproves a project, this project is doomed. Crypto exchanges, crypto companies, ICO startups all comply with the mighty SEC.

However, it is important to distinguish when the SEC comes out with an official statement and when the SEC representatives declare their thoughts and opinions on a particular issue.

This is what the report published by Jay Clayton on the official website of the SEC is about:

Statements issued by SEC staff frequently include a disclaimer underscoring the important distinction between the Commission’s rules and regulations, on the one hand, and staff views on the other.”

This leads us to another thought. So far the crypto community was sure the SEC did not consider Ethereum a security on the official level. However, now it turns out that it was just the point of view of the abovementioned Jay Clayton.

Thus, Ethereum might still be a security after all. Hopefully, it will boost its exchange rate a little, since it hasn’t been particularly high these couple of weeks.

While the details of his ambitious plan have not yet been revealed, Akon keeps researching the possibilities of the crypto world. Recently he gave an interview where he discussed the financial situation in Africa and his vision on cryptocurrency.

When the interviewer said he did not quite what cryptocurrency was in the first place, Akon’s response was simple – “Nobody does.” The rapper actually finds digital assets very similar to regular company shares.

You know they’re going to yield an investment. You go there with your money because you know, these guys, in the next four, five or ten years, their projection said they are going to make triple what they are making now.” – he mentioned.

In the end, Akon said he would keep studying the subject and would do everything in his power to improve the difficult situation in Africa.
