It seems that MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor has a message for his fellow traders. Check out the latest post that the Bitcoin maximalist shared on his social media account.

Here’s the post that Saylor shared on X:

There are all kinds of optimistic predictions about the price of Bitcoin these days. This is all ahead of the presumed acceptance of the BlackRock’s BTC ETF.

Cantor Fitzgerald, a financial services firm providing prime brokerage and investment banking services, has analysts who strongly believe that the highly-anticipated Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) is about to become a reality.

Bloomberg News reported that the firm is increasingly confident that the Security Exchange Commission (SEC) will approve asset managers’ applications to launch a spot ETF for Bitcoin.

The SEC had not approved such a product earlier due to the fear of manipulation on offshore spot platforms. However, the agency might approve new applicants because of the market surveillance procedures they have proposed.

“A comprehensive surveillance-sharing agreement with a regulated market of significant size” would mollify regulators, the firm’s Josh Siegler and Will Carlson noted.

The analysts are of the opinion that the approval of a spot ETF would have a significant impact on the short-term price of Bitcoin.

They believe that such an approval would be a fundamental moment for the long-term adoption and legitimization of Bitcoin. The approval is seen as the most important short-term catalyst.

The SEC has rejected several proposals in the past due to concerns about the lack of information sharing among exchanges to prevent market manipulation, as reported by the online publication, The Block.

Nevertheless, BlackRock’s proposal, submitted in June, has received attention.

This proposal includes an agreement with Coinbase to detect and address any market irregularities. Stay tuned for more important news.
