In this article, we will discuss:

Bitcoin Spot ETF Approved Today by SEC

The wait for Bitcoin Spot ETFs to be approved is over, the US SEC has given its approval for the ETFs to be launched tomorrow.

The journey to this milestone began in 2013, when the Winklevoss brothers, pioneers in the field of cryptocurrencies, made the first application to the SEC for a Bitcoin-based fund. The approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs, including financial sector giants like BlackRock, Ark Invest, Grayscale, and Fidelity, signals significant regulatory recognition for Bitcoin.

Spot Bitcoin ETFs differ from existing futures ETFs. While futures ETFs track Bitcoin prices through futures contracts, spot ETFs involve the actual acquisition of Bitcoin, reducing its supply in the market. This feature is crucial as it offers institutional investors such as pension funds and insurance companies a more direct and possibly safer way to invest in Bitcoin.

The SEC’s approval also reinforces the US’s position on the global cryptocurrency scene, joining other countries such as Canada, Germany and Brazil, which already have operational spot Bitcoin ETFs. This move is a significant step towards mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies.

List of ETFs Approved Today by the SEC are: BlackRock, Ark Invest, Grayscale, VanEck, Bitwise, Fidelity, Hashdex, WisdomTree, Invesco Galaxy, Franklin, Valkyrie.
