Another Day, Another ETF Denial: SEC Rejects 7 Bitcoin ETF Proposals

Retail financial specialists have hotly anticipated a Bitcoin ETF to attract an inundation of new institutional capital. On Aug. 22, the SEC denied seven Bitcoin ETF proposition from ProShares and Direxion.

Bitcoin ETF Approval Far from Here

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has documented seven dismissals to Bitcoin trade exchanged store (ETF) applications from ProShares and Direxion, as indicated by two separate filings.

The requests were relied upon to be reported Aug. 23, which was the due date for choices. For past ETF applications, the SEC conveyed choices ahead of time of the due date, liable to dodge advertise theory.

In the two requests, the SEC refered to inability to avoid control and extortion and in addition inability to demonstrate Bitcoin markets will be "markets of noteworthy size" as explanations behind dismissal. This was like the thinking given by the SEC when they issued a foreswearing of the Winklevoss ETF.

In the petitioning for ProShares, the SEC composed:

“…the Commission is disapproving this proposed rule change because, as discussed below, the Exchange has not met its burden under the Exchange Act and the Commission’s Rules of Practice to demonstrate that its proposal is consistent with the requirements of the Exchange Act Section 6(b)(5), in particular the requirement that a national securities exchange’s rules be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices. Among other things, the Exchange has offered no record evidence to demonstrate that bitcoin futures markets are ‘markets of significant size.'”


The two filings were almost indistinguishable, utilizing fundamentally the same as wording to depict purposes behind refusal. The Direxion explanation peruses:

These dismissals were broadly expected by the more extensive network, with most specialists foreseeing a level out dissent. ProShares pulled back the larger part of their past applications in January, demonstrating absence of trust in their proposition. Despite the fact that Bitcoin cost took a speedy jump, the cost promptly bounced back to above past levels.

While this denotes the finish of a few more Bitcoin ETF applications, the VanEyck-CBOE Bitcoin ETF proposition is still under survey until its choice on Sept. 30.
