2. OpenSea is hit by data breach

In a blog post published late on June 29, OpenSea said that an employee of Customer.io had “misused their employee access to download and share email addresses – provided by OpenSea users and subscribers to our newsletter – with an unauthorized external party.”

The leaked information included email addresses, according to the blog post, and OpenSea warned users that this could result in a “a heightened likelihood for email phishing attempts.”

3. Grayscale Investments initiates lawsuit against the SEC

Grayscale files a petition to SEC to challenge its decision to deny conversion of $13.5 billion Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) to a spot-based bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF). The conversion, if approved, would provide a low-cost and easily accessible way for individuals and institutions to invest in bitcoin.

Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is solely and passively invested in BTC, enabling investors to gain exposure to BTC in the form of a security while avoiding the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping BTC, directly. A Bitcoin ETF is an exchange-traded fund composed of bitcoin or assets related to Bitcoin's price. Unlike GBTC which is traded over-the-counter, Bitcoin ETF are traded on a traditional exchange, thus accessible to a relatively wider range of investors.

Grayscale Investments LLC. is a digital currency investing services company. The Company provides market information, investment exposure, and investment products to the developing digital currency asset class
