A commissioner at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) believes a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) will ultimately be approved. Robert J. Jackson Jr., in an interview published by government-focused news source Roll Call on Wednesday, said: “Eventually, do I think someone will satisfy the standards that we’ve laid out there? I hope so, yes, and I think so.”
A number of bitcoin ETF proposals have filed for SEC approval, but none has yet got the green light. Jay Clayton, chairman of the SEC) has said he doesn’t see a pathway to a cryptocurrency ETF approval until concerns over market manipulation are addressed.
