Greyscale earlier applied to convert the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a spot bitcoin ETF (exchange-traded fund). In February 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) delayed a decision to launch a bitcoin ETF, noting the need to explore Grayscale’s capabilities to crack down on fraudulent activity on the spot market. In June, the company sued the Commission after the agency rejected its application to convert the trust.
