Cathie Wood’s ARK will reportedly be the first to receive a spot Bitcoin ETF

ARK Investment Management, a pro-Bitcoin company (bitcoin) was founded by veteran investor Cathie Woodwill lead the race to approve a spot BTC exchange-traded fund (ETF).

Several reports have suggested that BlackRock could become the first issuer of a spot Bitcoin ETF in the US if approved, but that may not be the case, according to some executives and analysts.

“Other applicants will be able to convert their deposits to similar arrangements at a low cost”would declare Yasin ElmandjraAnalyst at ARK.
Elmandjra points out that ARK and European asset manager 21Shares filed an application for a spot Bitcoin ETF with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in April. “Now this is the only one that came before BlackRock”added.

Other industry observers, including Bloomberg Intelligence ETF analyst James Seyffart, have argued that ARK and 21Shares should be ahead of everyone to set up a spot Bitcoin ETF.

“21Shares, ARK and Cboe [Chicago Board Options Exchange] While we don’t yet have a date for other 19b-4 filings like BlackRock’s, they are in the first place as the next SEC decision date is August 13, 2023.”says Seyffart.

“Our bull case for approval of the Spot Bitcoin ETF can be summed up in four words: ‘What does BlackRock know?'” Eric Balchunas, a senior analyst at Bloomberg, twitter. ETF Institute co-founder Nate Geraci took to social media on June 26 to make similar comments.

Many industry players have pointed out the timing of BlackRock’s deposit of the Bitcoin ETF, e some claim the firm may have inside information about the SEC’s policies regarding BTC ETFs.

Despite growing optimism about the potential for a spot Bitcoin ETF to come to the US market, many experts believe that such products will not be released in the near future.
“The SEC is unlikely to approve a spot Bitcoin ETF in 2023, as the issue has not progressed much since the Winklevoss twins filed for ETFs in 2017.”Wilshire Phoenix partner Wade Guenther told Cointelegraph.

“Not much has improved since many of these sponsors first deposited their original spot Bitcoin ETFs”Günther added:

“As there is still some time for review, we do not believe that a spot Bitcoin ETF will go public anytime soon. Therefore, it may not be until next year, possibly next year, that we will see a spot Bitcoin ETF.”

Previously, co-founder of ETF Institute Nate Geraci He predicted there would be no spot Bitcoin ETF in 2023.
