Cryptocurrencies are one of the top priorities in 2019 for SEC

Last updated January, 2019

In a report released December 20, 2018, one of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s top examination priorities this year is cryptocurrencies.

In the report, digital assets (which are more specifically described in the document as cryptocurrencies, coins, and tokens) are included among the 6 themes for 2019 examination priorities.

I wonder if this means the Bitcoin ETF application waiting for SEC approval (which the SEC has postponed decision making on until February 27th, 2019) will actually be decided on. Back in December, SEC commissioner said “not to hold your breath” waiting for a Bitcoin ETF.
