    Bitcoin ETF Launch: SEC Chairman Says “Progress Is Being Made”

    Various firms like VanEck have tried to push through a Bitcoin ETF, but the SEC cited issues, such as price manipulation as a primary obstacle in getting a cryptocurrency-related fund approved. Clayton’s comments come ahead of two possible approvals or rejections for Bitcoin ETFs—one from Bitwise Asset Management and the other a joint effort from VanEck and Solid X. Both proposals were submitted late last year, but subsequent postponements have pushed the decision back. Are we any closer to seeing a Bitcoin ETF some day?

Market observers have previously warned that Wall Street banks could face pressure as tepid market volatility could have contributed to more muted trading desk activity. Furthermore, the Federal Reserve has signaled its intentions to cut interest rates, which would further hurt the banking industry’s ability to generate profits from lending.
