Bitcoin spot ETF
Just a week ago, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved 11 Bitcoin spot ETF applications.
Following the approval of Bitcoin spot ETF applications in the US, the discussion on potential approval of Bitcoin spot ETF-like products started in other countries e.g Singapore, India, South Korea.
Singapore’s central bank officials openly warned all retail investors to remain away from local Bitcoin spot ETF products because no one crypto firm was allowed to offer Bitcoin spot ETF products to retail investors.
Indian Central Bank governor Shaktikant Das said that approval of Bitcoin spot ETF in developed countries doesn’t mean that the same product would give benefits to developing economies.
South Korea’s Financial Services Commission (FSC) warned all the brokers to not provide American Bitcoin spot ETF offerings to Korean people. The FSC body called offerings of such products a violation of rules & laws.
All these developments are showing a clear picture for the short term future of Bitcoin journey. In short it will take years to see the approval of Bitcoin spot ETF products across multiple countries.
