Consensys Urges SEC Approval for Ethereum ETFs

Consensys Urges SEC Approval for Ethereum ETFs

Consensys is advocating for the approval of Ethereum (ETH) exchange-traded funds (ETFs) based on spot market prices by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The parent company of MetaMask, in a recent letter to the SEC, highlights Ethereum’s transition to a proof-of-stake (PoS) consensus mechanism in 2022, which it argues is more secure than Bitcoin’s proof-of-work (PoW) system.

The company asserts that the SEC’s previous concerns about Ethereum’s susceptibility to fraud and manipulation are unfounded.

Consensys contends that Ethereum’s PoS implementation not only matches but surpasses the security level of Bitcoin’s PoW.

With the SEC having approved spot market Bitcoin ETFs in January, Consensys argues that rejecting Ethereum ETFs solely based on security concerns would be unjustifiable.

The letter emphasizes Ethereum’s decentralized development community, transparent network, and robust security framework as factors mitigating the risk of fraud and manipulation.

Consensys urges the SEC to acknowledge Ethereum’s advanced safeguards and approve the listing and trading of Ethereum-based ETFs without hesitation.
