As a result, it was forced to make a decision in the first weeks of January, the answer to which could be known in the next few days.

What will ETFs allow?

ETFs will allow retail investors to invest in a digital asset with lower risk if they pay commissions linked to the product.

Bitcoin is a digital asset with a global impact. Achieving recognition from the SEC would provide both visibility and increased demand. In addition, investors would take it as a measure to diversify and control risks. This would give the cryptocurrency greater regulatory support.

Additionally, this could lead to increased use of the cryptocurrency as a means of payment, as investors become more familiar with it.

Bitcoin has both limited supply and liquidity.

An increase in the demand for an asset is planned with a limited future supply. The next bitcoin Halving is scheduled for April this year.
