As Expected, SEC Delays VanEck Bitcoin ETF Decision Until February 27

  • The Securities and Exchange Commission delayed making a decision on VanEck’s bitcoin ETF (exchange-traded fund) application until February 27, 2019.
  • Just hours earlier, Gabor Gurbacs — VanEck’s director of digital asset strategy — expressed confidence that SEC approval of the investment firm’s bitcoin ETF application was around the corner.
  • In June 2018 and again in March 2017, the SEC rejected the bitcoin ETF applications submitted by the Winklevoss twins, Tyler and Cameron.
  • As VanEck waits for an SEC decision, it’s plowing ahead to roll out bitcoin futures in the first quarter of 2019 through a partnership with Nasdaq — the world’s second-largest stock exchange.
  • The CFTC, which regulates bitcoin as a commodity, has so far approved just two crypto futures products: one from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), and another from the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).
