There has been just a boom in the crypto space as the SEC decided to eventually approve the spot Bitcoin ETFs. Check out more details about this highly bullish moment.

SEC approves spot BTC ETFs

The SEC Chair Gary Gensler issued the following statement about this huge announcement:

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently approved all Spot Bitcoin ETF applications, marking a significant milestone in the world of finance. This decision will allow Bitcoin exchange-traded funds to be traded on the markets for the first time.

SEC Chair Gary Gensler issued a statement in response to previous court orders regarding the SEC’s decision on the Spot Bitcoin ETF applications.

In the statement, Gensler emphasizes that the SEC has “reluctantly” approved these applications, but recognizes the significance of this move in the financial industry.

“Based on these circumstances and those discussed more fully in the approval order, I feel the most sustainable path forward is to approve the listing and trading of these spot bitcoin ETP shares,” Gensler says.

On the other hand, Gensler goes on to discuss that the SEC is still not a supporter of Bitcoin. Gensler says the decision “should in no way signal the Commission’s willingness to approve listing standards for crypto asset securities. Nor does the approval signal anything about the Commission’s views as to the status of other crypto assets under the federal securities laws or about the current state of non-compliance of certain crypto asset market participants with the federal securities laws.”

The decision made today to approve Bitcoin ETFs is a significant step for Bitcoin and crypto investors, as it provides further security.

This move will enable asset management firms such as BlackRock, Grayscale, and Valkyrie to launch their very own Bitcoin-focused exchange-traded funds.

”Such regulated exchanges are required to have rules designed to prevent fraud and manipulation, and we will monitor them closely to ensure that they are enforcing those rules,” Gensler says.
