There hasn’t been any luck with launching a Bitcoin ETF thus far, but Van Eck Associates Corp. and SolidX Partners Inc. hope to change that.
Today (June 6), the firms filed a request to list a Bitcoin-linked exchange-traded product (ETP) with the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to Bloomberg.
Of course, if it is approved, there is a catch.
The share price will be $200,000, so this will not target typical retail investors.
However, approval could lead to other Bitcoin ETFs hitting the market, bringing in more people to the crypto market.
In other news, Susquehanna International Group announced it will begin providing cryptocurrency trading options to its clients.
Susquehanna, one of the world’s largest investment firms, is the latest institutional investor to bolster its presence in the space. The firm first experimented with Bitcoin back in 2014.
