But let’s take a closer took of the history of this case :


This matter dates back to last year. Grayscale had already obtained approval from the SEC for a BTC Futures ETF (GBTC).

Later, they wanted to convert it into a BTC spot ETF, which is the ultimate goal. However, the SEC categorically refused without providing genuine reasons.

Consequently, Grayscale decided to take legal action to compel the SEC to provide a more structured response and, perhaps, to force them to accept the conversion of their ETF.

Now that they’ve win their battle, the SEC has 2 choices :

  • Appeal
  • Modify its response regarding the conversion of GBTC into BTC spot ETF.

It’s important to say that this win does not make the GBTC a BTC ETF spot.
