Analysts Say Spot Bitcoin ETF Approvals Still Likely For Next Week – The Defiant



The SEC hosted meetings with exchanges that would list spot Bitcoin ETF shares on Wednesday

Finance analysts have resumed bullish pronouncements that pending spot Bitcoin ETF applications may soon receive approval in spite of yesterday’s short-lived BTC flash crash.

On Jan 3, Fox Business published a report asserting that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s Division of Trading Markets met with official representing the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, and Chicago Board Options Exchange — major venues where the proposed spot Bitcoin ETFs would trade. The report cited anonymous sources representing the exchanges.

“Sources close to the proceedings say the SEC could begin notifying issuers of approval on Friday with trading beginning as early as next week,” the report said. The report also follows several rounds of meetings between spot Bitcoin ETF applicants and the SEC last month.

Scott Johnsson, a finance lawyer and general partner at Van Buren Capital, responded by tweeting that the SEC is unlikely to expend its resources on the meetings if it plans to deny the ETF applications. “If you intend to deny, you just deny,” Johnsson said.
