    • Good question.

    • The recent passing of the Financial Innovation and Technology for the 21st Century Act (FIT21) by the U.S. House of Representatives is a significant step towards crypto regulation.

    • This act aims to establish a legal framework for the digital asset industry.

  • Annie

    • That's a big step forward.

    • But are there any concerns regarding this new act?

    • I see.

    • So, which companies are leading the charge in this Bitcoin ETF surge?
