On Tuesday, the business submitted its application to the SEC. Franklin intends to utilize top American cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase as the fund’s custodian for its bitcoin holdings and Bank of New York Mellon for cash, according to a report from Bloomberg, if it receives approval from the Commission.

In 2021, the SEC allowed ETFs that hold bitcoin futures, but it hasn’t yet approved a spot bitcoin ETF. Decisions on seven applications—those of Invesco Galaxy, Wisdomtree, Bitwise, Vaneck, Fidelity’s Wise Origin, Blackrock, and Valkyrie—were delayed by the regulatory body at the end of August.
The Securities Commission justified the action by stating that it needed enough time to fully evaluate the submitted proposals before rendering a decision. The SEC previously rejected applications due to worries about fraud and market manipulation.
