Yes, Liquid made that announcement in April 2019 and here we are… I’ve been looking forward to this as well but unfortunately Liquid is not the solution because their liquidity/volume is anemic globally and will be far less within just the US. Should this change then I certainly recant, but I know it will not for a long long time.
A major US based exchange is what is needed to allow widespread access to the coin in the US. Right now there is zero.
(Not FUD, just imagine if 3 dozen of your closest investor friends – people who play in the 7 and 8-figure space – are new to crypto and very excited about ETN but couldn’t buy it. Welcome to my world; my small isolated group is far from alone…)
