By the end of October, the US regulator, SEC could approve four Bitcoin futures ETFs, according to Bloomberg.
A recent Bloomberg article reminds readers that the day is near on which the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) headed by Gary Gensler must decide finally on the fate of Bitcoin ETF applications.
The applications were submitted in the format that is favored by the SEC. This year, SEC Chairman Gensler stated that Bitcoin ETFs applications should be submitted in compliance with the Investment Company Act of 1940 to safeguard investors.
Many Bitcoin ETFs for futures were submitted obeying this Act. Among them were filings from Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital, Invesco, VanEck, etc.
Bloomberg believes that SEC may approve four BTC ETFs by month-end.
