SEC delays Ark Invest's spot Bitcoin ETF decision
According to yesterday's X post by Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart, the SEC has once again delayed its decision on Ark Invest and 21Shares' spot Bitcoin ETF filing. As noted by Seyffart, the delay announcement came "super early," as the decision was actually not due until Nov. 11. The analyst goes on, writing in his thread that this move by the regulator might speak of potentially delaying approvals for spot Bitcoin ETF applications until next year. With the U.S. government likely on the brink of a shutdown, which would incapacitate the SEC, such a decision appears to be a smart move on the part of the agency.
