In January 2019 were filled two applications: from VanEck and Bitwise Asset Management. SEC took over the consideration of applications on February 15, when Bitcoin cost $3,550. The commission had 45 days to make a decision, and on March 29 they postponed the deadline for another 45 days.
And now things get interesting. April 2, just three days after this decision, $BTC pumped by 20% per day, after which begins a path to new heights. Bitcoin has grown up for more than 55% in a couple of weeks! Anyone could barely expect that Bitcoin could easily break through the resistance at $6000 and then fly above $8000. Moreover, no one expected CMC to track record daily volumes after a semiannual winter!
But, let's back to the . The US Securities and SEC are due to deliver its decision on the VanEck Bitcoin (exchange-traded fund) on Tuesday, May 21. Also on Tuesday is the ETFs Global Markets Roundtable in New , a conference discussing issues affecting the industry.
Giving the keynote speech at that conference, is a certain Hester Peirce, SEC Commissioner. Peirce, also known as ‘Crypto Mom,’ is by far the most vocally supportive SEC Commissioner when it comes to Bitcoin . And if that wasn’t already enough to convince you. This week the SEC once again delayed their decision on the Bitwise Bitcoin ETF but made no announcement on the also-pending VanEck proposal.
Now let's tie all the facts together and imagine the full situation. Starting from March 29 till May 16, $BTC not only didn't drop , it grew up with record volumes. This fact gives us a simple idea - insiders knew something and ran like hell to buy $BTC. What was that inside? I have only one option: approval of the from VanEck by SEC. They knew and they bought.
So, what's now? Let's wait for Tuesday and hope for the best. If the decision is positive, Bitcoin will never see a new bottom, the $3000 will remain untapped.
