ETF going through will be a big thing for bitcoin, the odds of it going through are still slim with most people giving numbers ranging from 25% up to 35% of being approved. This would put bitcoin into the hands of thousands of big and small investors who under normal circumstances wouldn't touch bitcoin with a barge pole. The whole winklevoss ETF has been ongoing for almost 4 years now so this is it finally coming to a close and if no decision is made by the 11th of march then the new rule will be set in place by default and bitcoin can be traded as ETF.

There should be more coverage on this on bitcoin talk imo as it would lead onto a definite bull run.

I sense big money coming from the ETF. All those old big money men are going to come to bitcoin with the ETF, because they are too dumb to learn the technology and get their money in crypto exchanges, or maybe too smart, since they don't want to risk unregulated stuff.

So I sense 5 figures in not a long time from now. The ETF will get accepted sooner or later so no need to worry about dips if it doesn't get accepted again.

Exactly. The discussion thread should be full of stuff on the ETF but instead everyone is still worrying about the same old stuff. We are literally a few weeks away from the possibility of this going through and that means a lot of money more than likely will come in. Traditional investors dont like learning new technology's like bitcoin but if they can trade it as a ETF then there is a massive store of wealth just waiting to get tapped into.

Probably too smart, think about trading, the etf can easily be shorted and what not without leaving coins on an exchange. We all know how many times before exchanges have lost people's coins, this just allows easy traditional trading options to Bitcoin.

We are assuming the ETF does get accepted for this bull run to occur however. Delays are no longer possible and the final decision is indeed to be made March 11th, but what if it's denied? Will this lead to a dump? Are we going to see three figures again?

I believe so, because If everyone is buying right now for the sole purpose of making profit when the price increase after ETF gets approved, they will obviously get disappointed and sell everything they bought.

With regard to HOW the ETF actually works..

The price of the COIN ticker is not the price of a bitcoin ?

My limited, and probably wrong, understanding is that if many people buy COIN, then COIN will have to buy up Bitcoins from exchanges so that they have the correct amount of Bitcoin * Price (Winkdex) given how much there COIN ETF is worth.. ? And the same in reverse.

Can someone explain it pls..

there are always going to be people who buy because they want to make some quick profit and that is their only purpose and they always sell after a rise whether they are satisfied or not. and this has never changed anything about bitcoin price and its overall movement.
these things are all side-stuff which will always have temporary effect.

In the presentation of the ETF, it would be good to also mention a certain possible negative side: the return to an excessive volatility short term of the price, something which we have had good and evil to get rid. It would be a pity to lose this gotten.
Of course, speculators will advance moults arguments to say otherwise but the course is never so well worn since the Chinese regulator has put order in the abuse of its exchanges. How do you want a market healthy when tools take positions on more than BTC that we have, and even there?

Don't get too much hopes with ETF accepted. Two times rejected already. Two other funds of the same kind are pending approval: the ETF of the SolidX Bitcoin Trust and that of Grayscale Investments, a company owned by Barry Silbert. If it is accepted it could bring new investors but if not it could a flop with the price too!

I thought we should make a thread about the Bitcoin ETF and make a discussion about it , even though I don't fully understand what is this actually about , and I saw a question somewhere that really made me think why would someone buy shares on ETF that holds bitcoin while he could buy bitcoins himself ?

I also saw some interesting analysis on coindesk yesterday and wanted to take your opinion on it :





All I can say on this chart, I'm not sure if this is just a projection, It maybe happen  and It may not be happen, meaning 50/50 chances to be happen but whatever the result might gonna be still bitcoin will increase more.

only they can tell you that. i assume they have absolutely everything ready to roll. what might take time is the bats exchange getting ready but maybe they're ready too.

it could be a couple of weeks, might be three or more months.

ETF's wont cause much of a change to bitcoin at first.

for one.
most ETF had pre-bought the coins months/years before getting the green light from regulators.
also ETF are not trading bitcoins. they are trading shares in a company of X btc in trust. thus the price of a share is not directly impacting
bitcoin. because it does not result in any actual bitcoins being bought/sold.

there may be ETF events when they make announcements that they have added new 'baskets' (much like share dilution events) where the supply
of shares alters within the company. but this again is not about a change in bitcoins.


ETF will be more reactive to bitcoin prices so an ETF will follow the real bitcoin price rather than the other way around.

what positives i can see:
people will see an ETF and want to hold real bitcoin. so after playing with ETF or using ETF's for their official regulated pension funds. traders would separately then go and buy bitcoin for their personal holdings unofficially(outside their pension/investment contract)

mentions of the word bitcoin ETF would solidify bitcoin as a good asset. so again if its good for a ETF. people will then move off and buy bitcoin directly from proper bitcoin exchanges.

but i do not see the ETF price movements causing the real bitcoin prices to manoeuvre.. i see the bitcoin price movements manoeuvre ETF's

... just my opinion

So coming from someone who doesn't really quite understand how ETF's would work, I have a couple questions coming from what I highlighted above.

1) So with an ETF (Exchange Traded Funds), you are saying that people who invest into these are investing into a "company's" portfolio (i.e. Winklevoss bitcoin portfolio) rather than buying their own coins for what reasons?  How does this protect their investments?

2) If they can add more shares willingly to dilute their stocks enough to make it affordable, why even bother?  You can buy as much or as little Bitcoin as you want on regular exchanges.

...

Idk, I'm trying to see it from the side of the "non-techie guy" in trying to come up with reasons to invest in the ETF rather than just the asset itself, and can't really see why?  I understand this is primarily due to me not understanding how ETF's work IRL on the regular markets, but it gets confusing to me after looking up what an ETF is and seeing it's investing in a 'portfolio', when in this case it's just a portfolio of Bitcoin. (?)

We all know that ETF got rejected but the decision is being re-examined by SEC:

Quote
Further, the Commission hereby establishes that any party to the action or other person may file a written statement in support of or in opposition to the Disapproval Order on or before May 15, 2017

What 'reexamine' in this case really means? Is this possible that SEC decision will be changed somehow?
Is there a known case from the past when after negative SEC decision another reevaluation changed initial decision?

I feel like SEC will forever give us the same response over and over again 'bitcoin can't be regulated, so there won't be ETF based on it".
