Grayscale intends to convert its Bitcoin Trust into Bitcoin ETF

Four days ago, Grayscale Investments clarified the issue of whether it will or will not turn its leading investment productGrayscale Bitcoin Trustinto a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF).

The company confirmed its firm intention to do just that, being "100 percent committed" to it.

The timing for making it happen will depend fully on regulators' actions. The company already tried to convert its Bitcoin Trust into a Bitcoin ETF in 2016 but had to withdraw its application over the regulatory hurdles the initiative faced back then.
