The Judgement Regarding Tornado Cash Developer

The cryptocurrency community will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of a significant legal proceeding involving Tornado Cash developer Alexey Pertsev on April 14.

It is anticipated that a judge will provide a decision that may establish legal precedents on the treatment of developers of cryptographic tools with a privacy focus. Given that it tackles the confluence of technology, privacy, and regulation in the context of blockchain, this decision is very significant.

United States April CPI Release

On April 15, the US will release the Consumer Price Index (CPI) statistics for April. People who are involved in cryptocurrencies pay close attention to this news because it has an impact on Federal Reserve policy, which in turn affects how the market for digital currencies like bitcoin behaves.

The feeling among economists and investors is that a rise in inflation rates could be a factor that puts pressure on the Fed to alter interest rates, with possible implications for investor sentiment in the cryptocurrency market.

Answer from the SEC on VanEck’s Ethereum ETF

VanEck has submitted a proposal for an Ethereum ETF, and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is expected to answer on the 23rd, in line with what ETHNews previously disclosed.

Ethereum might see its value and reputation significantly affected by the outcome. If approved, Ethereum may face an increase in institutional investment, but if rejected, it could set regulators back years in accepting cryptocurrency exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Bitcoin Spot Options Decision by the SEC

The SEC will react to a request for Bitcoin spot options on the 29th, the last day of the month. We are very excited about this decision since it may result in a more stable price for Bitcoin (BTC) and increased liquidity.

The crypto community and potential institutional investors are eagerly awaiting this decision in the hopes of favorable outcomes that could support the market.
