Expert Nadig: “the SEC is continuing to gather information”
David Nadig, Director of ETF.com, told CNBC yesterday that the SEC is still a ruling about Bitcoin-seeking ETFs and the power to delay their decision in spite of deadlines more:
It is clear that the SEC is still in the information gathering mode. Technically, there are deadlines, but to be honest you can do what you want, you can bring the on the path, until you feel comfortable, it is clear from what we hear.
While investors and crypto enthusiasts today rather than tomorrow, a Bitcoin ETF want to have, it does not seem to have the SEC continue to be in a hurry, to approve the establishment of an exchange-traded Bitcoin Fund. According to Nadig, it is conceivable that the SEC is awaiting a further market cycle, at a possible rate case / BTC could be a burglary of the contents of the notice. Nadig believes, however, that a Bitcoin ETF will eventually get the green light.
The news about the postponement of the VanEck Bitcoin ETF comes just days after the SEC has made a similar judgment about the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF, which has a very similar premise, but on a completely different System based.
Although the displacement was the expected result. Still hoping a few that the SEC could, for the first time to approve a Bitcoin ETF. As we reported, today in the United States, a conference on the topic of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) the SEC, where Hester “Crypto Mom” Peirce holds the Keynote. Since the Deadline for the VanEck Bitcoin ETF, and today was the day, there was speculation that Hester Peirce could überbingen positive news for the crypto market.
Despite the disappointing news, the crypto market is currently only slightly lower. The BTC exchange rate has fallen from 8.044 USD $ to 7.902 USD (at the time of writing). The Altcoins are also only small price declines.
