Overall, the ongoing discussions about a Bitcoin ETF continue to fuel speculation and price promotions in the crypto market, especially for Bitcoin-related tokens. But be careful, there is still a possibility that this could turn into some sort of event that buys rumors, sells facts.
It should also be noted that the possibility of a Bitcoin ETF has been debated since 2013 and was one of the driving forces behind the 2017-2018 bull cycle, so it would be wiser to wait for the agency’s official announcement under the assumption that the Bitcoin is approved ETF.
