“Ethereum is a Commodity” says CFTC (U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission) chair, and expects ETH derivatives to launch in the U.S. This early judgment seems to bode well for the Ethereum community, but what about the fundamental holes in the Ethereum protocol? Bitstocks Relationship Managers, Antonio Shillingford and James Coughlan conclude that, “If a project can’t scale, it will stagnate.”

 

Moving onto Telegram, Antonio and James look back at the buzz around the encrypted messaging service’s $1.7 Billion ICO, and discuss the SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) stance that could force Telegram to postpone their token release.
