Crypto Industry Reacts to Yet Another VanEck Solid X Bitcoin ETF Delay

A Bitcoin exchange-traded fund or ETF, has become a running joke across the cryptocurrency industry, with each new proposal set forth by various financial industry firms repeatedly rejected or delayed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.

The entire market of crypto investors were watching and waiting to see if todays deadline for VanEck and Solid Xs proposal for a Bitcoin-based ETF would be rejected or approved, or delayed once again. As many expected, the deadline for the proposal has once again been extended by the SEC, further delaying a decision on if an ETF will be approved eventually.

Bitcoin ETF Delayed Once Again, Crypto Industry Yawns At Non-Event News

The potential of a Bitcoin ETF has reared its head quite a few times in recent years. The most recent Bitcoin ETF speculation took the price of Bitcoin towards $10,000 in late July as a proposal put forth by Gemini co-founders Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss.

The proposal was rejected, and the price of Bitcoin fell once again towards $6,000. Around that time, a proposal for a VanEck and Solid X Bitcoin ETF also reached its deadline with the SEC, but the proposal was delayed again and again. Each delay or rejection caused the price of Bitcoin to crash throughout the 2018 bear market.

A government shut down put the proposal which is said to have the best chance of being approved out of all of the different proposals out there on ice for some time, but the review resumed weeks ago, and was targeting a May 20 deadline for a decision.

Today has come and gone, but the SEC has once again chosen to delay the proposal set forth by VanEck and Solid X. According to The Block, the SEC has also issued a request for public comment on whether or not the US financial watchdog should approve or disapprove the proposal.

While in the past, such news would cause a sharp selloff, the price of Bitcoin has since risen following the news circulating. Also, now that the news had made its way across the cryptosphere, industry analysts and experts are all weighing in on the news that turned out to be a non-event.

Bitcoin has shown much resilience in recent weeks, also shaking off a hack of Binance and the worst Tether FUD to hit the industry yet without as much as a scratch. Instead, the price of Bitcoin continues to climb along the parabolic curve that began with the April rally.

The VanEck and Solid X Bitcoin ETF deadline has since been rescheduled for August 19, and has until one more final deadline of October 18 it can push its decision off until.

Will a decision finally be made?
