The future looks bright for the crypto markets, following the latest reports. Check out what the Grayscale CEO predicted about the crypto space recently.

Grayscale CEO predicts huge money flood in the crypto space

Michael Sonnenshein, CEO of Grayscale, is optimistic about the future of Bitcoin (BTC) and believes that once the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approves a spot market BTC exchange-traded fund (ETF), a surge of capital will flow into Bitcoin.

In a recent interview with CNBC Television, Sonnenshein stated that the approval of spot Bitcoin ETF applications would provide an opportunity for a group of investors to gain exposure to the leading cryptocurrency asset by market cap.

“I do think there’s a lot of optimism again in the market. I think a lot of investors are adding Bitcoin to their portfolios and when we look ahead to the hopeful approval for spot Bitcoin ETFs, it really is going to unlock the opportunity for a part of the investment community that for better or worse – but I would say for worse – has unfortunately been locked out of the opportunity to participate in having Bitcoin exposure to their portfolios.

We’re really talking about the advised market here in the US, which is today about $30 trillion worth of advised wealth that we hope the approval of Bitcoin ETFs, the uplisting of GBTC (Grayscale Bitcoin Trust) will allow for that opportunity for those investors to partake in it as well.”

Grayscale is a major player in the race to launch a Bitcoin ETF through its GBTC product. However, last year, the SEC rejected Grayscale’s proposal to convert the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a Bitcoin ETF.

Grayscale filed a lawsuit against the SEC, and a federal judge subsequently ordered the SEC to reconsider Grayscale’s application.

This decision was made to prevent arbitrariness and inconsistency in the SEC’s decision-making process. As of now, Bitcoin is trading at $42,354.
