It’s been just revealed that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is addressing a recent rise in crypto filings by opening up a new office related to digital assets. In a new press release, the SEC says it’s set to add a new Office of Crypto Assets to its Division of Corporation Finance’s Disclosure Review Program (DRP).
SEC to add a crypto office
In the same press release, the SEC announced it would be opening another office for filings targeted at the life sciences sector, another fast-growing sector.
Renee Jones, Director of the Division of Corporation Finance said the following:
“As a result of recent growth in the crypto asset and the life sciences industries, we saw a need to provide greater and more specialized support in the DRP’s Office of Finance and its Office of Life Sciences.”
Jones continued and stated this:
“The creation of these new offices will enable the DRP to enhance its focus in the areas of crypto assets, financial institutions, life sciences, and industrial applications and services and facilitate our ability to meet our mission.”
According to the SEC, both of the new offices will be set up later this year. These will join seven already-existing offices from the location.
Crypto state today
The mass crypto adoption is booming despite the massive market volatility. The prices continue to move a lot but this does not stop the mainstream adoption of crypto.
This is shown by the latest moves that the important company MicroStrategy is making.
Cointelegraph notes the fact that buying the dip is essential for MicroStrategy as the company’s reserve of nearly 129,699 BTC currently suffers an aggregated value loss of over $1 billion.
MicroStrategy is the largest institutional Bitcoin (BTC) buyer, and it entered an agreement with two agents — Cowen and Company and BTIG — to sell its aggregated class A common stock worth $500,000,000. This was revealed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing.
