Following the key date around Ark Invest, Bitwise and Blackrock are the next to expect any action on their filings from the agency officials. Starting from September 1, 2023, several SEC deadlines are lined up in the following days for various ETF applicants. Whether or not Ark stands a chance to gain the first mover advantage over Blackrock remains to be seen. It was on June 28, 2023, that Ark amended its filing over the inclusion of a surveillance sharing agreement with US based crypto exchange Coinbase.
