SEC-Grayscale decision expected this week, crypto may gain greater momentum: John Deaton
John Deaton, CryptoLaw founder and pro-Ripple lawyer, took to X platform to comment on the statement of ETF Bloomberg analyst Eric Balchunas regarding the upcoming court decision in the Grayscale v. SEC lawsuit. As a reminder, in June last year, the regulator refused to allow Grayscale to convert its Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a BTC spot ETF. Deaton wrote that he will be on the lookout for the Grayscale v. SEC case verdict this week. In case Grayscale wins, crypto will gain even bigger momentum than it currently has. The lawyer then added that he always believed that the SEC has a high chance of losing if a crypto company fights back regarding Bitcoin spot ETFs. "The surprise will be if the SEC doesn't lose," he concludes.
