Haaretz is reporting Monday that the chairman of the Israeli Securities Authority says he will propose regulations that ban business with main business in digital currencies from the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.  Whether this comes to fruition or not is anyone's guess.

The trading price of Bitcoin has become especially fluid in recent months with a sharp decline witnessed in the past two weeks alone.  Other crypto-currencies have cropped up over the past year as well, resulting in a dilution of the market value.

Shmuel Hauser, the chairman of the Israel Securities Authority (ISA), stated that he would bring the proposal to the ISA board next week. Should the proposal be approved, it would be subject to a public hearing as well as stock exchange bylaws amendments.

“If we have a company that their main business is digital currencies we would not allow it. If already listed, its trading will be suspended,” Hauser said.

Shares in Israeli bitcoin-based firms plunged two weeks ago following the initial remarks by Hauser.

While it may not be prudent to keep all of your eggs in one basket, it would certainly be nice if you could buy all of your eggs from the same market regardless of which eggs you want. The same could be said about the numerous crypto currencies available today. There are new ones popping up what seems to be almost every day. The problem is that you need to have multiple crypto wallets and use multiple exchanges in order to acquire, trade or sell them.
