US SEC Finds Spot Bitcoin ETF Filings Insufficient: Report

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has temporarily suspended recent ETF filings from BlackRock, ARK Invest, Fidelity and others, citing incomplete paperwork.

According to the SEC, the exchanges did not provide sufficient information about which exchange partner and supervisory sharing arrangements.

While the delay has caused some discomfort in the community, many are urging patience as the SEC has made it clear that companies can re-file once they update their paperwork.
