The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has not formally approved the bitcoin futures ETF. There might never be a formal approval, but it still is allowed to be traded.
The ETF will be allowed to be traded next week as long as there are no complaints from the regulator, a person familiar with the SEC decision told the outlet.
New York Stock Exchange Arca certified “its approval for listing” on Friday, with the price of bitcoin rising over the past week due to the anticipated approval.
The approval is a milestone for cryptocurrency as other companies have applied to launch their own ETFs.
