The SEC is reportedly making significant progress in its discussions with several firms seeking to launch a spot Bitcoin ETF.
Currently, there are 13 applications for Bitcoin ETFs awaiting review by the SEC. These applications come from prominent asset management companies, including BlackRock, Fidelity, Grayscale Investments, and ARK Investments. Notably, in the past week, several of these firms have made crucial updates to their applications, hinting at the evolving nature of their proposals.
The digital asset market has been closely monitoring the situation, speculating on the impact that an approval of a Spot Bitcoin ETF would have. Such an approval would be a groundbreaking event, marking the first of its kind in the U.S. The recent advancements in discussions, particularly focusing on specific technical aspects of the ETF proposals, suggest that the SEC might be moving closer to a decision.
