SEC Again Delays Decision on Bitwise Bitcoin ETF Approval

Yesterday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) again delayed a decision on whether to approve or reject a Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF). In a new document published by the SEC, the regulator said it would hold off on making a decision on the Bitwise ETF proposal filed with NYSE Arca.

The SEC last postponed a decision on both the Bitwise and VanEck/SolidX proposals at the end of March, kicking both to May. The regulator has yet to approve any Bitcoin ETFs, though both experts in the space and officials with the agency seem to believe that it’s only a matter of time. There will be a public comment period for three weeks after the latest document regarding the Bitwise ETF is published in the Federal Register, plus an additional two weeks for responses.
