A recent Bloomberg article reminds readers that the time is fast approaching when the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, helmed by Gary Gensler, needs to approve or reject a set of application filings for Bitcoin ETFs.

However, these applications were filed in a format that may be favored by the SEC. Earlier this year, SEC chairman Gensler stated that applications for Bitcoin ETFs must be submitted under the Investment Company Act of 1940 in order to protect investors.

Several Bitcoin futures ETFs were submitted this way. Among them were filings from Invesco, VanEck and Mike Novogratz's Galaxy Digital.
