Bloomberg reported that Fidelity Investments has urged the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to approve its Bitcoin exchange-traded fund in a private meeting.

Meanwhile, the SEC chairman Gary Gensler told lawmakers on Tuesday that the regulator is working to create new rules to protect investors in the volatile crypto market and that tokens listed on crypto trading platforms should be treated as securities.

Elrond (CRYPTO: EGLD): Elrond, the cryptocurrency that seeks to incentivize distributed networks to run smart contracts, is the second-most discussed cryptocurrency on Twitter. The altcoin traded 3.5% higher at $274.65 over 24 hours at press time, but is down 9.3% from its all-time high.

The price of Solana’s SOL tokens dropped more than 13% in value following a prolonged downtime that lasted over half a day and developers have succeeded in getting the blockchain network online early Wednesday, CoinDesk reported.

Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH): The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap was placed on the fourth sport on the Cointrendz list. ETH traded 2.6% higher at $3,402.46 over 24 hours at press time. Since its all-time high, the cryptocurrency is down 22.1%.
