However, the spotlight also beams on Gary Gensler, SEC Chair, whose decision on this critical matter could unleash a tempest of public distrust and legal strife. Hammond points out that a denial without airtight justification might ignite a contentious legal imbroglio, casting a pall over the SEC’s standing.

Furthermore, political undercurrents could destabilize Gensler’s position. With the looming 2024 election, Democrats may persuade him to mollify his stance should they feel it imperils their electoral prospects.

Amidst this turbulence, the future of Bitcoin spot ETFs seems luminous, likely to usher in a transformative phase for cryptocurrency investments.
