VanEck再次提议为比特币推出ETF

2020-12-31 17:43

 

随着2020年即将结束,基于比特币的交易所交易基金(ETF)的早期支持者之一再次尝试:VanEck已经向美国证券交易委员会(SEC)提交了“VanEck比特币信托”的申请。


ETF被认为是有利的,因为它在股票市场上的交易很像苹果和微软等受欢迎公司的股票。


VanEck以前也提出过etf,最近一次是在2019年9月撤回申请。当时该公司表示,它仍致力于一种交易所交易产品。


VanEck表示,与之前的申请一样,这只ETF将在芝加哥期权交易所BZX交易所交易。


到目前为止,SEC已经考虑了许多基于比特币的etf的申请,并全部拒绝。2018年8月,中国政府在同一天否决了9项此类提案。


去年10月,SEC主席克莱顿(Jay Clayton)表示,该机构仍愿意考虑ETF的提议。


克莱顿主席上周正式辞职。该机构称,投资管理部(division of investment management)主任达利娅·布拉斯(Dalia Blass)也将于明年1月结束任期。2018年,布拉斯在美国证券交易委员会的一封信中表达了对比特币市场规模不够大或流动性不足的担忧,无法为交易所交易产品做好准备。


根据申请,已发行股份的数量将取决于有多少比特币交付给信托,并由尚未指定的托管人持有。

 

As 2020 draws to a close, one of the prior proponents for an exchange traded fund (ETF) based on Bitcoin is trying again: VanEck has submitted an application to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the “VanEck Bitcoin Trust.”

An ETF is seen as advantageous because it trades on the stock market much like shares in popular companies like Apple and Microsoft do.

VanEck has previously proposed ETFs before, withdrawing its most recent application in September 2019. At the time the company said it remained committed to an exchange traded product.

As it has in previous applications, VanEck said this ETF would trade on the Cboe BZX Exchange.

So far, the SEC has considered many applications for bitcoin-based ETFs and rejected them all. In August 2018, it rejected nine such proposals on the same day.

In October, SEC Chairman Jay Clayton said the agency was still open to considering ETF proposals.

Chairman Clayton stepped down officially last week. Dalia Blass, the director of the division of investment management, will also end her tenure in January, according to the agency. Blass was the author of a 2018 letter within the SEC expressing concerns that the bitcoin (BTC, +4.44%) market was not large enough or liquid enough to be ready for an exchange traded product.

According to the application, the number of the outstanding shares will depend on how much BTC is delivered to the Trust and held by an, as yet, undesignated custodian.
