Erik Voorhees did not receive the news politely as he was made to know that the ( Security and Exchange Commission ) SEC, will be on hibernation mood on Wednesday in honour of former president George H.W. Bush.
The New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq Inc.’s U.S. equities and options markets, CME Group Inc.’s U.S.-based equity and interest-rates markets and CBOE Global Markets Inc.’s exchanges will shut, the companies said. They will also observe a moment of silence on Monday. The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association has also recommended that fixed-income cash markets close on Wednesday, according to a statement.
U.S. financial markets will close Wednesday for a national day of mourning to honor former President George H.W. Bush.
This has been a tradition among U.S. financial markets. Any time presidential death ocures. As same was the case on Jan. 2, 2007, after the death of President Gerald Ford.
Shapeshift CEO reacted through his official Twitter handle
Crypto markets do not shut down for the pageantry of politicians. #bitcoin.
His comments has raise several argument between his fellowers with some in support of his point of view and others feel it is not just an attack on SEC but also the U.S. government.
