[1]. SEC approves NYSE direct listing plan

On December 22, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it would approve the New York Stock Exchange’s plan to allow companies to list directly on the exchange. By then, the company will be able to raise capital without having to be underwritten by many of its stock exchanges. Direct listing provides an alternative to IPO for listed companies. Direct listing sells existing shares, not new ones like IPOs. Direct listing can also bypass underwriters in the process of selling shares, thus reducing the issue cost.

It is reported that roisman is one of the securities and Exchange Commission’s most friendly specialists on cryptocurrency, and he has always been a strong supporter of the regulation of cryptocurrency. In 2018, foreign media reported and analyzed that if the new member, Elad roisman, and the SEC member and encryption mother, Hester M. Peirce, stand on the same front, then the voting decision on whether to pass the bitcoin ETF may appear a new pattern.
