Bitcoin market overview: SEC delays ETF decision again, BTC/USD price falls down


  • SEC has postponed the decision until October.
  • The price dropped from $11,535 to $11,385 this Monday and is currently priced at $11,370.

The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has dealt a major blow to the crypto community by delaying their decision to approve two Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETF). The decision has been postponed until October. The two ETF proposals were - Bitwise Bitcoin ETF Trust and the VanEck SolidX Bitcoin Trust.

Bloomberg reached out to Bitwise and SEC representatives for a comment, but none of them responded. Last year the agency rejected an exchange’s request to list a Bitcoin ETF backed by the Winklevoss brothers.
