SEC approves Volt Equity ETF providing exposure to Bitcoin-centric companies

Bitcoin News

The United States Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, has approved the Volt Crypto Industry Revolution and Tech ETF, providing investors with easy access to companies with significant exposure to Bitcoin (BTC).

The ETF, which was approved on Oct. 5, is intended to track so-called “Bitcoin Industry Revolution Companies,” which are defined as entities that hold a majority of their net assets in BTC or derive a majority of their earnings from Bitcoin mining, lending or transacting, according to an SEC filing. The new ETF will appear as a New York Stock Exchange Arca listing under the ticker symbol BTCR.

U.S. securities regulators have been deliberating for years on whether to approve their first Bitcoin ETF. On Oct. 1, the SEC announced it would delay its decision on four Bitcoin ETFs by 45 days, pushing back the timelines on the Global X Bitcoin Trust, Valkyrie XBTO Bitcoin Futures Fund, WisdomTree Bitcoin Trust and Kryptoin Bitcoin ETF to Nov. 21, Dec. 8, Dec. 11 and Dec. 24, respectively.

Unlike other Bitcoin ETF proposals, the newly approved Volt Equity fund doesn’t track the price of Bitcoin or hold the asset in custody. Rather, it seeks exposure to companies that generate a significant portion of their business from Bitcoin-related activities.
