SEC position on Bitcoin ETFs keeping back cryptos

The regulatory authority just rejected nine proposals of such ETFs, which brought about the wider market slumping. Nonetheless, it is necessary to keep in mind that lots of were anticipating another SEC denial.
A current poll by CoinDesk revealed that 62 percent of the overall participants think the SEC would not accept the ProShares Bitcoin ETF. Though most major digital coins are selling the red, the marketplace was not surprised.
Inning accordance with Sagami, although the SEC has actually currently turned down 15 different proposals before the current judgment, “every rejected ETF brings us one action closer to ultimately getting approval”.
