Why Crypto Mining Stocks and Altcoins Flared Today

The values of digital currencies, tokens, and digital money company equities rose significantly on Valentine's Day as investors showed their love for crypto.

Leading altcoin Ethereum (CRYPTO: ETH) rose 5.4% in late afternoon trade. That rise was noteworthy, but crypto mining equipment provider Canaan (NASDAQ: CAN)'s ADRs finished over 32% higher. Behind Canaan, miner TeraWulf (NASDAQ: WULF) surged over 12%.

The world's first cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC), remains the most significant 15 years later. Other currencies, tokens, and cryptocurrency mining firms frequently follow when it does well.

Bitcoin stood out on Wednesday, fortunately for those asset holders. After a Tuesday drop, it crossed $50,000 again, closing at slightly under $52,000. Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) continue to attract investment, which is beneficial for their core asset.

Other elements fuel the purchase fire. On Wednesday morning, Coindesk.com reported that EU authorities had produced and shared a paper on an impending financial services committee meeting. This April symposium will discuss bitcoin legislation in the 27-country economic union.

According to Coindesk, the document specifies meeting topics. These include licensing and the recently passed Markets in Crypto Assets regulations. Most intriguingly, a digital euro—presumably the "official" E.U. cryptocurrency—is mentioned.

The E.U. declaration is the latest sign that senior authorities worldwide are taking cryptos seriously and recognizing them as part of national economies. As these assets gain acceptance, markets like Europe may incorporate the latest crypto developments. Thus, will spot crypto ETFs be launched overseas?

More likely than not. The software and infrastructure needed to transact in coins and tokens is a key barrier to crypto's global appeal. Since spot ETFs are exchange-traded securities, this restriction is eliminated. The spot crypto ETF revolution is just begun.
