▌Judge Clarifies Ethereum as a Commodity, Not a Security in Uniswap Case
Bill Hughes, a lawyer from ConsenSys, stated on X platform (formerly Twitter) that the judge in the Risely v. Uniswap case at the Southern District of New York federal court on August 29th explicitly pointed out that Ethereum is a commodity, not a security. The document does not provide an analysis, only a conclusion, but the judge’s statement is quite clear.
In addition, the judge’s document also hints that wrapped BTC is a commodity, although this point is not explicitly stated. However, the statement that “Ethereum is a commodity” is undeniable.
▌Bloomberg Analyst: Grayscale’s Victory Might Render Alameda’s Redemption Lawsuit Unnecessary
In a report on Wednesday, Bloomberg Intelligence’s litigation analyst stated that Grayscale’s victory against the SEC could pave the way for the company to convert its fund into the first spot Bitcoin ETF in the United States. This transformation would allow the redemption of fund shares, making Alameda’s lawsuit unnecessary, which seeks to lower GBTC fees and implement a redemption plan. (Redemption would align the fund with the value of its held Bitcoin, a long-standing demand of the fund.)
The analyst wrote, “Grayscale’s court ruling may indicate that Alameda’s attempt to release approximately $9 billion in funds for Grayscale shareholders is premature, and the ultimate resolution of the issue may be delayed.”

▌Republican presidential candidate: Grayscale’s victory “clears the way” for Bitcoin innovation in the United States
Vivek Ramaswamy, a Republican presidential candidate in the United States, stated that Grayscale’s victory “clears the way” for Bitcoin innovation in the country. In a personal tweet, he said, “This decision is strong and clears the way for keeping Bitcoin and blockchain innovation in the United States instead of overseas, but it shouldn’t have reached the courts in the first place.”

▌Fidelity: Ethereum faces more resistance than Bitcoin in being widely accepted as a form of currency
Fidelity Digital Assets subsidiary has released a research paper on Ethereum investment. The researchers who wrote the report state that investors can consider Ethereum (ETH) as an “aspirational” form of currency, but Ethereum may face more resistance than Bitcoin in being widely accepted as a currency form.
The report states that there is uncertainty about the future upgrades of Ethereum and the unrestricted circulation of tokens. Fidelity acknowledges that Ethereum’s use of smart contracts unlocks a new level of programmability, which is Ethereum’s “true differentiating factor”. Fidelity’s final conclusion is that the increase in activity on Ethereum has actually driven the demand for block space, thereby generating cash flow for token holders.

Side-channel attacks target the physical implementation of a system rather than its algorithms. They exploit information leaked during device operation, such as power consumption, electromagnetic radiation, or timing variations, to launch an attack. These subtle leaks can allow attackers to gain deep insights into sensitive data such as cryptographic keys, potentially compromising the security of cryptocurrency hardware wallets.
