SEC SUSPENDS TRADING OF TWO CRYPTO PRODUCTS: The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has halted trading of two crypto-tracking products due to market confusion over whether the products are exchange-traded funds (ETFs). In a statement, the regulator announced the temporary suspension of Bitcoin Tracker One and Ether Tracker One until September 20, with brokers who allow customers to pursue trades of the instruments or offer quotes during the suspension facing the possibility of enforcement actions. While the SEC has so far blocked crypto-based ETFs from entry to the market, firms have been developing other products to increase the ease of digital asset trading. The suspension of these investment vehicles, dubbed exchange-traded notes (ETNs), comes nearly a month after the products, which are listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, were made available to US investors in dollars. Amid the collapse of cryptoprices this year, this suspension is another setback to efforts to attract more institutional investors into the space.
