If you’ve been following the recent news from the digital currency industry, then chances are that you’ve heard once the Securities Exchange Commission SEC decided to reject the Winklevoss-backed Bitcoin ETF project, which would’ve made bitcoin-based investments easier and more accessible to people throughout the world.
