Bitcoin breaks 30 day high passing $28k as SEC considers future of spot Bitcoin ETFs
Highest trading value since August as Bitcoin starts the week strong
Bitcoin’s value reached notable heights over the weekend, increasing 4% over the past 24 hours. It rose significantly to $28,200 on Oct. 2, marking its highest trading value since August, according to CryptoSlate data. This growth comes amidst persistent anticipation surrounding the future of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently submitted filings concerning these pending spot Bitcoin ETFs.
The SEC has clarified that the proceedings do not indicate any conclusions have been reached. The regulator is currently inviting public comments on various aspects of the proposed spot Bitcoin ETFs, including their potential vulnerability or resilience to fraud and manipulation.
These proceedings will likely dramatically impact the trading of spot Bitcoin ETFs on commodities exchanges. If the SEC approves the proposed rule changes, new trading opportunities for Bitcoin may emerge.
As the crypto world awaits the SEC’s decision, Bitcoin’s value continues to climb. The future of spot Bitcoin ETFs may have far-reaching implications for Bitcoin’s trading value and the broader cryptocurrency market.
