ARK Investment Management and 21Shares have become the first major applicants in the United States to disclose management fees for Bitcoin spot ETFs. According to updated documents on Monday, the Ark 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ARBK) will charge a management fee of 0.8%. Although higher than the average fee rate of US-listed ETFs at 0.54%, the fee is lower than the maximum fee of the Bitcoin futures ETF - ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF at 0.95%, and much lower than the 2% charged by Grayscale GBTC.

  • Ethereum ACDE Conference: Goerli validator will be discontinued 3 months after the Goerli Dencun upgrade or 1 month after the mainnet upgrade

    According to Ethereum core developer Tim Beiko's post on X platform summarizing the latest Ethereum core developer execution meeting (ACDE): "The team is working hard to implement the latest CL specification changes and eliminate any bugs. Ben Edgington urged us to release Devnet 12, even if not all teams are ready next week. In addition, it is worth emphasizing the closure of Goerli: once Dencun is launched on Goerli, all client teams and EF developers will stop running Goerli validators 3 months after the Goerli Dencun upgrade or 1 month after the mainnet Dencun upgrade. After the deadline, we will conduct a month of chaos testing on the network, including slashing. Dencun will also be the last upgrade to go live on the testnet. Therefore, in short, if anyone is still using Goerli as a stable testnet, I recommend migrating."
  • Du Jun: If the DA layer of the sovereign Rollups L2 expansion plan is Bitcoin, the transaction confirmation time "will have to wait for more than 5 minutes."

    Du Jun, CEO and executive director of New Fire Technology, posted on social media that for Layer2 expansion plans similar to Sovereign Rollups, if the DA layer is Bitcoin, it takes more than 5 minutes from transaction initiation to DA layer confirmation. This is unacceptable for transactions and businesses that are sensitive to transaction delays, such as those using real-time data such as coin prices. Therefore, even if Sovereign Rollups achieves the separation of DA and Settlement, there are still many limitations in business scalability and universality.
  • He Yi responded to follow-up supervision: SEC is a civil lawsuit, and the lawsuit will be filed slowly like Ripple.

    According to discussions within the community regarding SEC's regulatory actions, Binance co-founder He Yi stated that SEC is a civil lawsuit and it will take time to fight it out, just like Ripple. Earlier reports indicated that Binance reached a historic settlement with US regulators, and He Yi emphasized on X platform that US regulators did not accuse Binance of misusing user funds or participating in market manipulation. Binance will continue to strengthen its compliance measures and build and develop its platform. In addition, He Yi stated in the community, "Our early compliance was not good enough, and we had to suffer the consequences of our mistakes. Binance did not touch user funds or manipulate the market. Being compliant is being a good kid. This is not just about Binance. There was BitMEX before, now it's Binance, and there will be more to come. Now it's the compliant Binance, and a new chapter is opening."
