Why did the SEC delay its decision? The Commission stated that it needs time to explore Grayscale Investments’ capability to crack down on fraudulent activity on the spot market. The SEC awaits public comments over the next 21 days.

What had happened before? In early February, it became known that Grayscale Investments is launching its first exchange-traded fund (ETF). The new ETF has already been added to the New York Stock Exchange listing under the ticker GFOF.

GFOF, or “Future of Finance” ETF, includes shares of 22 companies that operate in the field of cryptocurrencies and have added bitcoin and other digital assets to their product lineup.
