    Insights from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)

    Back in 2013 the introduction of a gold-backed ETF led to a massive increase in gold price from 300$ to 1300$ per ounce. So far, all attempts of a “digital gold” backed ETF at the SEC have been declined, although it is only a matter of time before the first ETF is approved.
