The United States Securities and Exchange Commission has received the Fidelity’s Wise Origin Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund from the Chicago Board Option Exchange.

The Commission’s first response window will close in 45 days upon which the SEC will elect to extend or reject the application altogether. In total, the SEC has 240 days to evaluate Fidelity’s Bitcoin ETF application.

Back in April, the SEC postponed its decision on the VanEck Bitcoin ETF application until June.

CBOE’s filing also puts Fidelity’s application among a list of Bitcoin ETF hopefuls apart from VanEck that include WisdomTree and SkyBridge Capital.

Mike Novogratz’s Galaxy Digital has also submitted a Bitcoin ETF application with the SEC, with the NYSE Arca listed as the exchange partner.

The company, via its subsidiary, also launched a BTC ETF product in Canada back in March. Indeed, Canada has become a Bitcoin ETF trading hub in North America amid a raft of approval by securities regulators in the country.

Meanwhile, Bitcoin ETF hopefuls in the U.S. are keen to see the SEC under Gary Gensler’s charge approve an ETF product for the largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.



  1. I oversee a vape store submission site and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the United States that likewise offers CBD items. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to take out PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory. We do not offer for sale CBD goods like CBD oil. We solely provide advertising and marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Wellness Merchant and if you take a good peek, you will see that they supply a rather comprehensive stable of CBD products, particularly CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is administering twos sets of rules to many different firms. As a result of this restriction, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has limited my payment possibilities and currently, I am intensely dependent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is entirely illegal and inequitable as it should be applying a consistent benchmark to all firms. I am still to get in touch with another legal representative from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be highly appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
