Robert Kiyosaki recommends traders scoop up Bitcoin

Robert Kiyosaki, the American entrepreneur, told his 2.3 million followers on Twitter that he is bullish on Bitcoin because BTC is a commodity, according to the US financial regulator, unlike most cryptocurrencies. 

Kiyosaki argues that the US Securities and Exchange Commission considers Bitcoin a commodity, and the asset would, therefore, not be impacted by the future actions of the regulator. The entrepreneur tells his followers on Twitter that the US SEC considers most altcoins as securities. This classification of tokens by the US financial regulator could stifle innovation in crypto. 

The entrepreneur explains that he is “very excited” about Bitcoin and considers the asset a commodity similar to gold, silver and oil. SEC’s regulations could crush altcoins, but BTC will likely survive crypto regulation. 

SEC Chair Gary Gensler has repeatedly affirmed that Bitcoin is a commodity and most other tokens are securities. Rostin Behnam, Chair of the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, confirmed that BTC is a commodity. The SEC’s enforcement division is focused on crypto, and the commission has been criticized for its approach to cryptocurrencies. 

The collapse of the FTX exchange, its bankruptcy and spreading contagion urged regulators to finalize a framework to regulate digital assets. Central banks worldwide are evaluating the need for stablecoin regulation and cryptocurrency taxation. Stablecoins are considered the entry point for traders; therefore, regulating assets like USD Tether (USDT) and USDC is the beginning of a wider framework for crypto regulation in 2023.
