Happy Thursday, Blockfolians
Yep, that’s right. Fidelity has become the 6th firm to offer up an application for a Bitcoin ETF. At this point, we sort of agree with this take:
In all seriousness though, there are good reasons to think that the SEC will finally allow a Bitcoin ETF soon:
The new Chair Gary Gensler is more pro-crypto, having taught a course on Bitcoin and Blockchain at MIT
Canada now has multiple approved ETFs
The market has matured significantly since the last round of proposals
For now, I guess we just wait and see.
