Emmer, who has been named one of the most crypto-friendly voices in the US Congress, has done so designation The decision is “baseless,” although the SEC cites fraud prevention and investor protection concerns as reasons for its rejection.

Last month, Fidelity launched a spot bitcoin ETF in Canada. It is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Canada became the first country in the world to approve a Bitcoin ETF in early 2021.

mass rejection

In November, Emmer and Democratic lawmaker Darren Soto sent a letter to SEC Chairman Gary Gensler making a compelling case for approving a Bitcoin ETF.

While the SEC gave the green light to its first bitcoin futures ETF in October, this letter argues that a spot ETF is more efficient.

A week ago, regulators also rejected a spot bitcoin ETF proposal from SkyBridge Capital and First Trust.

In the future, the SEC will make a decision on Stone Ridge subsidiary NYDIG’s proposal, and the answer will likely remain “no.”

Fidelity has been officially censored, spotting Bitcoin ETF Murder #6 and counting.
