Another Bitcoin spot ETF has been filed

One could argue that the launch of more than a dozen new Bitcoin exchange funds has single-handedly caused the uptick since last July. Last week a thirteenth fund was added, namely the Pando Asset Spot Bitcoin Trust.

Additionally, BlackRock has made adjustments to ensure that its fund cannot be used for market manipulation. Compared to other species Exchange-traded funds (ETFs), a spot ETF is much more cost-effective and theoretically follows the Bitcoin price better.

FTX sells crypto

Additionally, bankrupt crypto empire FTX received permission to sell a large amount of shares in crypto funds last Wednesday. These are $873 million worth of shares split between Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), Grayscale altcoin exchange fund and the Bitwise 10 Crypto Index fund.

What is beneficial for FTX is that many of these funds have increased significantly in value since the end of last year. The crypto exchange is still billions in debt; So the increase means investors get a little more money back.
