Deep dive into this investigation into recent news around Blackrock and Grayscale Ethereum ETF applications – discover the latest from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC.)

January ushered in the Bitcoin ETF era, with BlackRock amassing a hefty 273,892.57 BTC stash for their IShares Bitcoin Trust at an eye-popping $18.18 bn.

This blockbuster debut got investors itching for an Ethereum ETF. But, true to form, the SEC just hit the snooze pushing Ethereum ETFs further back.

 

In this article, we’ll tell you when the BlackRock ETF is coming and what exactly happened to HBAR BlackRock this week.

Initially slated for an April 24 verdict on ETH ETFs, BlackRock and Grayscale’s S-1 application to morph its ETH Trust into a spot ETH exchange-traded product now has until June 23 to woo or win SEC’s approval.

The SEC unveiled qualms with the proposals this week, zeroing in on share creation and redemption mechanics for the ETFs.

BlackRock, the behemoth with $10.5 trillion assets under management, doesn’t always get the SEC’s celebrity treatment.

Ethereum Latest Price Action After Fake HBAR BlackRock

A fake HBAR BlackRock RWA story shook the crypto world last night.

Like wildfire, fake news of an HBAR Blackrock RWA partnership sent the HBAR token into a frenzy, doubling its value overnight. By daybreak, the frenzy cooled but left HBAR perched 43.8% higher, basking in the afterglow.

As a response to this price action, HBAR’s competitor, Ethereum, has been following along with the 20-day SMA, which recently acted as a support level at $3,270. If the price stays above this line, it’ll be a positive sign for things to come.

The delays in SEC decisions have cast a shadow of suspense over the future of ETH ETFs, with many interpreting this hesitancy as an ominous sign. Fake HBAR BlackRock stories add to the case that crypto is still the wild west.

However, Grayscale and BlackRock’s previous legal victory against the SEC over its Bitcoin ETF application sparks a glimmer of hope for a favorable outcome come June.
