Several Bitcoin-related ETF Proposals Withdrawn at SEC’s Request Today, January 9, ProShares, Raffety Assets Management and VanEck all withdrew their Bitcoin-related ETF proposals from SEC consideration, at the regulator’s request. Rafferty Assets Management commented that the SEC “expressed concerns regarding the liquidity and valuation” of the underlying asset.”   None of the withdrawn proposals were actually Bitcoin ETFs, per se.

After breaking through the $20,000 mark on Dec. 17, Bitcoin suffered a rather large correction to $12,000 before rebounding and settling between $13,000 and $15,000. However, the digital currency has suffered a few setbacks since that monster rally, leaving some to wonder if the bull run might be over. Bear signs?
