US SEC Not Ready to Come Out Soon With Final Bitcoin ETF Decision

Nov 08, 2018 at 13:25 // News

Lawyer Jake Chervinsky tweeted about the recent rejection of nine Bitcoin (BTC) ETFs by the US SEC and said it would probably be done next month. Ran NeuNer earlier falsely revealed that the authority was to call BTC ETFs by Mon Nov 5, 2018.

The deadline for the public to submit statements was November 5, as Jake tweeted, such that the SEC would have enough time to revise the previously rejected BTC ETFs before making the final awaited decision.   

The lawyer explained that the deadline now for the US SEC staff to finally decide on the VanEck/SolidX ETF will be December 29 this year but this can further be extended to February 27, 2019.   

But since that time, NeuNer, a media personality, has made it clear that his tweet concerning the deadline was incorrect.

The shifting of goal posts by the SEC started far back in July when it first rejected the application for BTC ETF approval from the Winklevoss brothers.   

Further, the US SEC rejected 9 more applications seeking permission to start BTC ETFs in the U.S. The SEC reached this decision after a long review period that took over 8 months.   

These are the Bitcoin ETFs that were rejected by the US SEC: - "Cboe BZX Exchange's Granite Shares Bitcoin ETF, Granite Shares Short Bitcoin ETF, NYSE Arca Inc; Proshares Bitcoin ETF, Proshares Short Bitcoin ETF; NYSE ARCA Inc, Direxion Daily Bitcoin Bear 1X Shares, Direxion Daily BTC 1.25X Bull Shares, Direxion Daily BTC 1.5X Bull Shares, Direxion Daily BTC 2X Bull Shares and Direxion Daily BTC 2X Bear Shares."   

Regardless of the 99% in favor from the reporting mass, the US SEC once more suspended the decision on BTC ETFs in September 2018. It went ahead to note in its filing that it still wants more feedback on the BTC ETF subject.
