Today's Headline - Crypto Twitter reacts after SEC’s Gensler Asserts BTC’s commodity status
SEC Chairman Gary Gensler stirred up Crypto Twitter on Monday after asserting that Bitcoin (BTC) is a commodity. Questions were raised about its effects on Grayscales’ proposed Bitcoin ETF and why Ethereum has not been mentioned.
In his original remarks in response to why he thinks Bitcoin is the “only one,”
“Some, like Bitcoin — and that's the only one I'm going to say because I'm not going to talk about any one of these tokens, but my predecessors and others have said they’re a commodity.”
Gensler’s views on Bitcoin have been seen as a positive for Bitcoin. The remarks stirred up chatter about Grayscale’s application to convert its Bitcoin Trust into a spot-based exchange-traded fund (ETF) — which is expecting a decision from the SEC on July 6.

In Shevchenko's defense, she said she had the full support from the Ukrainian government about how the crisis-fundraising DAO was being managed. She also said she used $5,000 to pay her rent and remain free from the influence of sponsors. At several points, things also got a little personal.
