United States Securities and Exchange Commission Chairman Jay Clayton recently spoke with CNBC's Bob Pisani regarding the regulator's latest take on Bitcoin exchange-traded funds. "Given that they trade on largely unregulated exchanges how can we be sure that those prices aren't subject to significant manipulation? Now progress is being made, but people needed to answer those hard questions for us to be comfortable that this was the appropriate type of product." "We're engaging on this, but there are a couple of things about it that we need to feel comfortable with. The first is custody: custody is a long-standing requirement in our markets, and if you say you have something you really have it."
