What are the reasons for the rejection? The SEC explained that the application filed did not meet the requirements of Section 6(b)(5) of the Exchange Act. Specifically, it lacked a joint supervision agreement.

A similar explanation was contained in the SEC’s refusal to list the same tool from VanEck. At the same time, the commission has already approved a bitcoin futures ETF from this company.

What are the SEC's plans? On December 24, the regulator should consider an application to launch a spot bitcoin ETF from Kryptoin. Upcoming are from Valkyrie Digital Assets, SkyBridge Capital with First Trust Advisors, Fidelity Investments, 21Shares with ARK Invest, Global X, Bitwise, and Grayscale Investments.
