Direxion, ProShares, VanEck withdraw Bitcoin ETF filings

posted 9 months ago
Direxion, ProShares and VanEck were among a handful of ETF issuers that have withdrawn filings to launch bitcoin ETFs at the request of U.S. regulators.

On a related note, The SEC is seeking input on proposed rules changes by the Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) that could allow the exchange to list up to four bitcoin ETFs. Cboe was the first exchange operator in the U.S. to introduce futures based on the digital currency, having done so last month.

Thus far, no exchange traded products related to digital currencies have been approved by U.S. regulators.
