SEC clears Bitcoin ETF…but not really

TL;DR: SEC posts about approving Bitcoin ETF on X (formerly known as Twitter), except their account was compromised.

The incident highlights the potential risks associated with social media account security and the importance of accurate information dissemination in the financial sector.
