On the 19th, the US SEC postponed the decision on whether or not to list Grayscale and Hashdex’s virtual currency Ethereum (ETH) ETF listing.
The ETF that has been postponed this time is not a physical Ethereum application, but a futures-based “Grayscale Ethereum Futures Trust.” The SEC previously postponed this application in November, but the latest decision is to seek public comment on whether ETH’s PoS consensus could lead to fraud or manipulation.
Additionally, Hashdex is a mixed ETF of spot Ethereum and Ethereum futures, which was also postponed once last month. While the SEC has previously approved the listing of ETH futures-based ETFs, it has not yet approved the listing of blended ETFs or spot-based ETFs.
Last week, Invesco also postponed its decision on whether to apply for listing the physical Ethereum (ETH) ETF.
