Date: February 23, 2021 at 16:00 CET / 15:00 UK / 10:00 ET / 7:00 PT
The institutional crypto market continues to evolve quickly. There have been a flurry of crypto ETP listings in Switzerland, Canada, and Germany recently, while the FCA has banned retail ETNs in the UK. Grayscale had $3B inflows in Q4 2020, with an additional $700M in a single day in January. Bitcoin has been regularly hitting new highs. Gary Gensler is set to become the new SEC chair, while two new crypto ETF applications, including a refiling from VanEck, have been submitted since former SEC Chairman Jay Clayton announced his resignation.
