SEC Issues Supplementary Opinions on S-1 Applications, No Change in Plans Intended
SEC issued supplementary opinions on pending applicants’ S-1 Forms, indicating no shift in plans regarding the spot Bitcoin ETF process.
US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued supplementary opinions on pending Bitcoin ETF process applicants’ S-1 Forms. Companies in receipt of these documents have acknowledged that there is no indication of a shift in plans regarding the spot Bitcoin ETF process.
As reported by Fox Business journalist Eleanor Terrett, asset managers expressed confidence that the revisions are a routine aspect of the ongoing process, aimed at completing all necessary procedures before the final deadline on January 10th for spot Bitcoin ETF approval.
Earlier, Perianne Boring, founder and chief executive officer of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, shared on X (formerly Twitter) that the SEC has issued additional opinions on the pending applicant S-1. Bloomberg ETF analyst James Seyffart subsequently validated this information, stating that further amendments are expected tomorrow. He expressed confidence that this additional opinion does not signify any delay in the process.
Prominent investment firms, including Valkyrie, Bitwise, Grayscale, Invesco, BlackRock, ARK 21Shares, VanEck and WisdomTree, recently submitted updated Bitcoin spot exchange-traded fund (ETF) S-1 Forms. These filings offer insights into the proposed fee structures by each entity, providing a clearer understanding of their competitive positioning within the evolving cryptocurrency market.
If approved, these proposed fee structures may significantly influence the landscape of Bitcoin spot ETFs, influencing investor decisions and market dynamics in the upcoming months.
The current list of issuers prepared to launch their Spot Bitcoin ETF upon approval includes Grayscale, Ark 21Shares, BlackRock, BitWise, VanEck, WisdomTree, Invesco, Fidelity, Valkyrie and Franklin Templeton.
Investment Firms Fine-Tune Spot Bitcoin ETF Details
Issuers have been working on refining the specifics of potential Spot Bitcoin ETFs in recent weeks.
Recently, Grayscale, Ark Invest, Valkyrie, and VanEck have submitted Form 8-A to the SEC – a registration that enables issuers to trade on an exchange once the product receives approval. This move followed Fidelity’s prior submission of Form 8-A preceding the S-1 application.
The S-1 Form is expected to progress during this week before the final deadline.
Amidst evolving regulatory processes, investment firms eagerly await the final verdict on Bitcoin spot ETFs, with ongoing refinements in fee structures and procedural submissions defining the industry’s trajectory in the coming weeks.
