Though SEC Commissioner is ‘Optimistic’ for BTC ETF Approval, We Never Know

Lost of crypto news feeds are inundated with opposite headlines: from ‘ETFs will be approved in no time’ to ‘ETFs will be approved soon.’ However, there are no official statements made by the participating regulatory agency. The latest report grabbing the ETF headline, via Twitter, is apropos a leaked document of an interview with the SEC Commissioner prognosticating a BTC ETF ‘might eventually be approved’; but, again, it's not an official statement

According to the interview document, obtained by Twitter user Drew Hinkes, SEC Commissioner, Robert J. Jackson, implied that a number of cryptocurrency ETF applications have been submitted for a much-wished approval. He did not follow this statement with a reveal on which of all the applications hold the utmost possibility of approval.

In spite of prior application rejections and re-reviews by the agency, ‘a fund based on bitcoin will eventually pass muster,’ he went on to say. Once again, no firm was named.

SEC Concerns

The well-known, and concocted to be the most-promising, BTC ETF application is by CBOE BZX Exchange, Inc. In their re-submitted application, the exchange contends the bitcoin market is innately challenging to maneuver. But, says Jackson in the obtained Congressional Quarterly interview, the SEC finds the BZX proposal floundered to demonstrate ‘the kind of surveillance common in stock markets.’

The Commissioner also states the three-pronged concern the SEC has on the bitcoin markets, which are a liquidity deficiency in some BTC markets, the trading volume, and the capacity to protect proprietary information.

Trust No One

Making its rounds, the premise of this report, as with previous reports on BTC ETF approval, sprouted from unofficial and unconfirmed sources; not from the regulatory agency themselves. News readers are strongly encouraged to retrace the developments back to its origin and draw inferences from confirmed sources.

Just build a platform where you can earn interest on your Bitcoin. Would love to hear your feedback.

My foray into the world of Bitcoin and blockchain technology began in 2013, during the ‘Silk Road Bust’. At the time, I had a very negative opinion about the cryptocurrency and wrote it off as ‘dark web money’ or ‘drug dealer money’. In spite of having this opinion, I still had one eye on this domain, the tech and the currency. It wasn’t until 2017, that I crawled into the crypto-rabbit hole. I have a background in finance, and was working for a large housing finance company. The disparity in classes created by the traditional economy was a source of distress for me and I was on the lookout for something that had the capacity to disrupt finance in a way that would create equal opportunities for all classes of people. Dialing back to 2017, I found myself being engrossed in everything crypto and blockchain. The vision of Satoshi particularly appealed to me, and I eventually found out that my calling had something to do with blockchain and decentralized finance. I eventually ended up investing in Bitcoin in the same year while it was on its bull run. I started the Bank of Hodlers in May, 2018 with this exact same intention and spent the next couple of months forming the core team and developing our products.
