Gary is pro crypto and hails from a background of strong cryptocurrency understanding as he has taught crypto courses at MIT. He is also a noted admirer of Blockchain technology and believes in cryptocurrencies as useful financial instruments.

SEC commissioner Hester Pierce has already confirmed that Bitcoin ETF will get a fresh look under Mr. Gensler’s leadership. Speaking to FOX she accepted that Canada is already leading way in Bitcoin ETF market and said,
