CBOE bets on a Bitcoin crypto ETF
The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to list the Fidelity Investment Bitcoin ETF.
He basically filed Form 19b-4 with which he seeks to list Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin ETF. If approved, the Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust would allow investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin without directly buying or storing the crypto.
It’s worth remembering that once the form is filed, the SEC will have 45 days to respond. After which the SEC will choose to extend or reject the application entirely. However, the SEC actually has 240 days to evaluate the application.
And, although some experts see the approval of a Bitcoin crypto ETF in the United States feasible, the reality is that the SEC remains on the sidelines.
In the past the SEC has rejected multiple crypto proposals for an ETF. In fact, in April, the SEC postponed its decision on VanEck’s Bitcoin ETF application. So, the question that remains is: Will the SEC approve it?
