For quite some time, the Security and Exchange Commission had blocked an ETF that was based on Bitcoin. Two months later, the Chair of SEC Gary Gensler declared that he was open to the idea. However, two months later, ProShare and Invesco, funds managers, filed for Bitcoin (BTC) operation.

ProShare reveals that the Bitcoin Strategy ETF is expected to trade under BITO shortly. ProShare also stated that it will launch the ETF as soon as possible, provided SEC doesn’t stop it.
