SEC again postponed ETF on Bitcoin. The next review — in February

The Commission on securities and stock exchanges of the USA has again postponed a decision on Bitcoin. The SEC announced the date of the next revision of the decision on 27 February 2019. Recall that we are talking about the approval of the listing of an ETF on Bitcoin from an investment firm VanEck and blockchain company SolidX at the Chicago Board of options exchange CBOE. The Commission considers it appropriate to extend the solution, since the consideration of the question requires more time.

In accordance with the law “On securities and stock exchanges”, the SEC must “to render a decision on the proposed change not later than 180 days” from the date of registration of the application. If the Commission deems it necessary, it may subsequently extend the period for another 60 days. Since the proposal was first made in the Federal register of July 2, 2018, the maximum period of examination is on 27 February 2019. The firm VanEck and SolidX has applied for listing on the Bitcoin ETF with the SEC on June 6. In August, the Commission has the adoption of the decision until 30 September.

Last week, the SEC submitted a Memorandum on the meeting with representatives VanEck, SolidX and the CBOE. The applicants noted that there is precedent for making a Bitcoin ETF, ETF referring to commodities such as gold and crude oil.

According to recent statements by SEC Commissioner Hester pierce, known for his Pro-cryptocurrency stance, the adoption of the ETF on Bitcoin can be “tomorrow, and in 20 years”. Agree with her and other experts. In November, the head of BlackRock , the ETF will approve it soon.

Known capturador Alex Kruger rejects Bitcoin ETF in February. Now we have to wait until the end of the period set by the SEC for a decision.
