Subject: Retailer Investor Supporting Bitcoin ETF
From: Chase Carter

June 29, 2018

To whom it may concern:

I am a retail investor who supports the approval of a Bitcoin ETF.  I think SEC approval and regulation will go a long way towards protecting retail investors, like me, who believe in the technology behind distributed ledger/blockchain assets such as Bitcoin and its ilk, but want government involvement to protect us from market manipulation from whales and marketmakers. 

I am of the mind that government can do more to protect investors by accepting and regulating this emerging asset class, vice ignoring it altogether--similar in principle to abortion and vice items like alcohol and marijuana. 

Anyway, just the $.02 of a citizen who invests in cryptocurrency. 

Thanks and best regards,
