📈 In the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain, recent developments have made headlines. Let’s delve into these noteworthy events.

1️⃣ The court has approved the settlement agreement between Binance and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Binance’s founder, Changpeng Zhao, is required to pay a fine of $150 million, while Binance itself will pay $1.35 billion. The exchange will also compensate $1.35 billion in unlawfully obtained trading fees.

2️⃣ First Trust has filed an application for a Bitcoin Buffer ETF with the SEC. This type of fund employs a unique strategy to hedge against Bitcoin risk, sacrificing a portion of profits to protect against specific loss percentages.

5️⃣ SEC Chairman Gary Gensler stated that they have received 8 to 12 applications regarding the approval process for spot Bitcoin ETFs and the approval window in early January.
