According to TrustNodes, the US SEC plans to operate a bitcoin node and an Ethereum node through a contractor. The SEC did not give any specific reason why it needed to run its own node, but said it would support its monitoring of risks, improve compliance, and inform the committee about digital assets. At the same time, the SEC specifically pointed out that all blockchain data should be obtained from the managed node instead of providing it as a secondary source (for example, through a blockchain browser). Therefore, the SEC may look for an analytics company to outsource the SEC's blockchain monitoring and compliance investigations. In addition, the SEC may also seek to operate blockchain nodes such as BCH, XLM, ZEC, EOS, NEO, and XRP Ledger.
