Breaking: Odds Of Spot Bitcoin ETF Approval By US SEC Rises To 65% – Bloomberg


Bloomberg ETF analysts increase the odds of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval this year to 65%, up 50% from weeks ago and 1% a few months ago. The move comes amid several key events including SEC Chair Gary Gensler downplaying his role at the securities regulator and Grayscale’s attempt to minimize filings and SEC’s loss in front of the same judges in the Grayscale case.

Bitcoin ETF Approval Gets Necessary Boost

Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst James Seyffart on August 2 said chances of a spot Bitcoin ETF approval by the US SEC grows to 65% based on recent events and new information.

He cites several reasons such as Gary Gensler downplaying his role at the SEC and its approval of Coinbase’s Bitcoin exchange, Grayscale minimizing other filings and the SEC’s loss in the Grayscale case in front of the same judges. In addition, pressure from BlackRock to approve Bitcoin ETF and Democrats possibly making ETF denying difficult for Gensler.

He claims that Grayscale’s victory over the US SEC in the lawsuit is a key trigger of spot Bitcoin ETF approval. It could make SEC approve multiple Bitcoin ETFs in the 4th quarter.

Meanwhile, Grayscale sent out a comment letter to the US SEC in relation to the spot Bitcoin ETF filings with the surveillance sharing agreements, with enough reasons to approve Bitcoin ETF.
