Full approval from the SEC is still pending, but the exchange approved listings from ARK 21Shares, Invesco Galaxy, Fidelity, VanEck and Franklin Templeton.
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission may be one step closer to full approval of listing shares of a spot Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF) after the Cboe BZX Exchange gave notice of approved securities listings from several asset managers.
In Jan. 10 letters filed with the SEC, Cboe said it had approved spot BTC ETF offerings from ARK 21Shares, Invesco Galaxy, Fidelity, VanEck and Franklin Templeton. The deadline for final approval or denial of the spot Bitcoin ETF from ARK 21Shares is Jan. 10, leading to speculation that the regulator may approve multiple offerings from asset managers simultaneously.
“In order to facilitate timely listing, the Exchange requests acceleration of registration of these securities under Rule 12d1-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended,” said the Cboe.
The Cboe approval letter dated Jan. 10, 2024.
