“The approval of a BlackRock ETF for Bitcoin could potentially catapult the price of BTC to new heights, as institutional investors gain easier access to the world’s leading cryptocurrency.”
The cryptocurrency community is abuzz with excitement as multiple spot Bitcoin ETF applications seek approval, with particular attention on BlackRock’s bid. Alongside BlackRock, other major players such as ARK Invest, Bitwise, Invesco, WisdomTree, Valkyrie, VanEck, and Fidelity have also thrown their hats into the ring. Experts are confident that the approval of one ETF will pave the way for others, leading to increased demand for Bitcoin and subsequently driving up its price.
One significant catalyst for this optimism is the recent win by Grayscale against the SEC in August. The DC Court of Appeals ruled that the SEC’s rejection of Grayscale’s application to transform its Bitcoin Trust into an ETF was unfounded. This ruling sets a precedent that could potentially open the floodgates for the approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs.
Renowned crypto expert Aaron Arnold, known for his YouTube channel Altcoin Daily, believes that this landmark win has cornered SEC Chair Gary Gensler and the SEC, making the approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs inevitable. Arnold recently discussed this with Anthony Scaramucci, founder of Skybridge Capital, who shares his belief in the eventual approval of the ETFs. Scaramucci also anticipates potential delays from the SEC but remains optimistic about the outcome.
Spot Bitcoin ETFs are considered game-changers as they simplify the process of crypto investment for individuals and institutional players alike. These ETFs provide wealth advisors, who manage a significant portion of global capital, with a straightforward avenue to incorporate Bitcoin into investment portfolios. This opens up Bitcoin access to a previously untapped demographic, positioning it for unprecedented demand and growth.
Drawing parallels from the approval of the gold ETF in 2004, which resulted in a 420% price surge, Arnold predicts a similar outcome for Bitcoin. He believes that a 420% increase from the current value could see Bitcoin prices skyrocketing to anywhere between $130,000 and over $300,000, depending on market conditions at the time of approval.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is valued at $34,314, highlighting the potential for significant price appreciation if spot Bitcoin ETFs are approved.
