Crypto Industry News:
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has once again officially stated that Bitcoin is not a security. In a letter to Cipher Technologies, Bitcoin Fund SEC rejected the investment company’s registration statement, justifying (among other things) that Bitcoin is not a security. According to a letter, Cipher tried to register an “investment company” in accordance with the 1940 Investment Companies Act, suggesting that Bitcoin is a security.
In turn, SEC employees counter-argued the reason for Cipher as part of the Howey test and the Digital Asset Analysis Framework published in April.
“We do not believe that current Bitcoin buyers rely on the necessary managerial and entrepreneurial efforts of others to make a profit. Therefore, since Cipher intends to invest essentially all its assets in Bitcoin under the current structure, it does not meet the definition of an” investment company “in accordance with the Act on investment companies and incorrectly submitted the N-2 form “- we read.
In addition, the SEC also noted that if Bitcoin were security, “it would cause significant other problems.” More specifically, the cryptocurrency would be “an unregistered, publicly offered security and, among other things, would potentially make the proposed fund a guarantor of Bitcoins.”
Finally, the securities regulator also noted that Cipher did not comply with legal and investor protection standards, respectively. The letter ends with the statement that “SEC employees will not carry out additional verification of Cipher in its current form.”
