The world’s second largest stock exchange Nasdaq and U.S. investment firm VanEck have announced a partnership to jointly launch a set of “transparent, regulated and surveilled” digital assets products. VanEck’s director of digital asset strategy Gabor Gurbacs tweeted the news Nov. 27. Gurbacs revealed the partnership at the Consensus:Invest crypto conference in New City. The announcement echoes yesterday’s report from Bloomberg, citing “two people familiar with the matter,” that Nasdaq would be rolling out a Bitcoin futures contract as early as Q1 ‘19. Gurbacs indicated in his tweet that the new products would harness Nasdaq’s SMARTS Market Surveillance system, alongside VanEck’s MVIS digital asset pricing indices.

Securities Exchange Commission Chair Jay Clayton is reluctant to add digital currency ETFs, including Bitcoin ETFs, over fears of market manipulation, centralization, and custody security. Speaking at Consensus Invest in New , Clayton said he will not support ETFs for a financial product until there are measures in place to ensure that it is free of manipulation.

The following is a scheduled notification from the Osiris team. Our models have been working hard and smart on forecasting the market, and here are the most up-to-date predictions for the next 3 hours:

During the recent days, the “hash wars” surrounding the Bitcoin Cash hard fork have intensified. As predicted by the Osiris Team, the pool Bitcoin .com representing over 40% of the Bitcoin hash rate post-fork has slowed its mining. Miners supporting the SV chain have capitalised on this opportunity and, for a brief period of time, have gained the lead in terms of blocks mined and the network hash rate, SV chain being 32 blocks ahead and controlling 71% of the hash rate for a brief period (Source: https://cash.coin.dance/). However, this advantage was short-lived, as the chain has quickly caught up almost immediately. As for now, the chain is leading once again, with an outstanding 55 block-advantage and over 67% of hash rate (Sources: https://cash.coin.dance/, https://blockchair.com/bitcoin-cash/bloc...). Just as the Osiris Team has asserted previously, the SV chain remains much more concentrated in terms of hashing power distribution, with its native SV pool mining over 60% of the recent blocks in the chain. The chain shows a much more balanced picture, with no pool having more than 30% of the mined blocks. In terms of mining profitability, the SV chain is extremely volatile, currently being 28% more profitable to mine on than Bitcoin (before Bitcoin SV price hike, it used to be twice as profitable to mine on the Bitcoin chain). Bitcoin , in turn, manages to secure a robust advantage in terms of mining profitability compared to Bitcoin , fluctuating from 5% to 15% depending on the current BAB price. This remains a major factor in explaining the diverse mix of mining pools currently working on the chain (Source: https://cash.coin.dance/). The Osiris Team, despite acknowledging the unfortunate downward trend of the recent days, reminds that BAB has overall performed comparatively well to the market in general, and, due to fundamental factors outlined above, remains on the coin.
