WisdomTree, VanEck List Spot Bitcoin ETFs Tickers On DTCC Amid US SEC Approval Hype

  • The WisdomTree and VanEck ETFs have been listed on the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), amid US SEC approval hype.

Amid high anticipation of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approving the spot Bitcoin ETF applications, the ETFs from two of the 11 ETF applicants, WisdomTree and VanEck, have been listed on the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC). 

This comes just 48 hours before the SEC’s deadline to take a decision on the Ark 21Shares Bitcoin ETF filing.

Earlier, it was reported that the Bitwise spot Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) has been listed for clearance with the DTCC with the ticker $BITB.

However, this does not necessarily mean indication of any regulatory clearance, amid the pending approval from the US SEC. 

Previously, the spot Bitcoin ETFs of BlackRock, Fidelity, and Invesco Galaxy have also been added to the DTCC list.

Fears over chances of the US SEC delaying the approval of Bitcoin ETF were triggered with the agency officials issuing additional comments on the form S-1s.

However, analysts believe these are mere regulatory compulsions and have nothing to do with decision making in terms of approval. 

Earlier, it was reported the comments from people associated with the ETF filers, who said the SEC has not informed them of any change in plans.

On the other side, the Bitcoin Price (BTC) breached the $47,000 range on Monday, gaining by over 8% in the last 24 hours, amid hopes of the ETF approval.
