A few minutes ago, we announced a last-minute S-1 update in the Bitwise ETF application and said that more would follow. Bloomberg experts indicated that file updates are a sign of moving closer to ETF approval. The SEC is now setting aside its negative approach to cryptocurrencies and starting to engage with potential issuers.
BlackRock has also updated its S-1 filing for a spot Bitcoin ETF application. Investors hoping for approval by January 10 are growing more optimistic with such movements.
