Quiz: Why did Bitcoin just do this?
Answer: A federal judge just ruled against the SEC, ordering it to vacate its rejection of an application from asset manager Grayscale for a spot-Bitcoin ETF. While this ruling doesn’t mean the application is automatically approved, it has renewed hopes across the crypto industry that the SEC’s longstanding practice of denying spot-crypto ETFs (though it has approved Bitcoin futures ETFs) could be reversed through legal action.
Both parties have 45 days to appeal, in which circumstance there’s a possibility of the case going before the Supreme Court. But clearly crypto fans feel pretty great about this ruling.
