sometimes it doesn't have to really be a big thing to help with the little push needed for the bitcoin adoption to occur. sometimes a little hype is a good thing. some people need that little push to start opening their eyes on reality after years of listening to nothing else but FUD and being brainwashed with it.

A true Bitcoin investor will not be happy, if a Bitcoin ETF is approved, because this will only create massive volatility in this market.

I'm not sure that this is true.
we already have high volatility and manipulation in the market so it won't get any worse. but ETF can help grow the size of the market which can actually reduce volatility and effects of manipulation.

I would agree that a bitcoin investor would  not be happy, if a Bitcoin ETF is approved. it does break a seance of the "bubble" and it really is a massive breach.

I think Bitcoin ETF is one step closer to government regulation. With ETF, investor will more confident to investing their money because market regulator approved. With Bitcoin ETF, big financial institution will investing their fund on bitcoin and price will rising

ETF, is a investment fund tracks and follows with the price of a tangible asset like gold, diamond, oil  etc. and is traded on exchanges. For, BTC ETF, an investor would be holding the bitcoin ETF in their portfolio against the actual digital currency. So, they would be purchasing a regulated investment instrument that they can buy and sell instead of having to buy and securely store bitcoin.

Yeah i am also agree with that. BTC ETF is really creating a good hype which is clearly visible in the growth of bitcoin in last few days.

this is the major reason for a huge price surge but it seems majority are expecting the SEC  would trashed this etf application thats why bitcoin price is in consilidation and seems in downtrend mode again.

if you think a less than 20% rise which is just going back to normal prices is a "huge surge" then what do you call the 120% rise that we had in December?!

as for current trend, it is not a "downtrend mode" unless we enter $6k and go below the proven bottom price. this recent drop is more of a manipulation of whales in my opinion based on what i saw in the market yesterday and also because there wasn't any reason for this drop to happen. there wasn't even a news to cause it!

ETF means Exchange-Traded-Funds and being applied to bitcoin, bitcoin etf could be one of the coolest thing to occur to bitcoin if approved. ETF is like a common stock on the exchanges such as NASDAQ. ETF is different to mutual funds because ETF is traded throughout the day while the mutual fund is traded at the end of the day.

With bitcoin ETF there will be more security in buying bitcoin and we no longer worry about  buying bitcoins as well as storing it. With bitcoin ETF we will expect a tremendous increase of the buying public to be active on the bitcoin market.
Yes I agree, it also means that more institutional investors will jump into Bitcoin trading. ETF is one the best way to introduce bitcoin to practical investors who are very conservative about investments cause it adds more confidence to holders. The more Bitcoin becomes regulated the more adopters will this market.

ETF , compared to futures, should have an amount or "real" btc baked up away. This means that if ETF will be acceptep, there will be a really high volume/amount of Bitcoin buying, cause they need real bitcoin, not like futures that are just numbers.

ETF is a popular fund that allows trade and exchange to happen by following the price of an asset.. Bitcoin ETF is very similar, investors can hold Bitcoin ETF and make profit from the actual currency which is Bitcoin itself. It is also safer than holding a Bitcoin because ETF is much more secured and regulated in a strict way based on actual ETF.

It is great info!
Acceptance by Bitcoin for the ETF opens up a new step.
The recent rise in Bitcoin prices is the reason for the rise of the ETF.

A true Bitcoin investor will not be happy, if a Bitcoin ETF is approved, because this will only create massive volatility in this market. You will find that the institutional investors will manipulate these Bitcoin ETFs with large capital reserves and you will get massive spikes and huge dumps, which will destroy the use case for Bitcoin to be used as a currency.

Some people rejoice about the SEC's decision to deny the Winklevoss's ETF, because they know it will destroy Bitcoin as a viable payment option.  Angry
As a true bitcoin lover I don't want ETF to get approved on bitcoin after read your suggestion. Undecided

Already the volatility of the itcoin is the reason that bitcoin to be used from currency so imagine what will happen it will be used only for dumping and bumping from big investors then the future or the bitcoin will be uncertain.

I agree. I dont see any good coming from the bitcoin ETF as such. It will truly disturb the market and give small players less scope to make major profits

Bitcoin exchange traded found (ETF) will go a long way to strengthen the bound between bitcoin and it exchanges the exchange bound if approved will also serve a a security just as we have with the traditional banking system having some deposits with the central bank in other to serve as an insurance to investors in the line of doing they normal businesses with the bank. So bitcoin ETF will be a stock exchange base and that will provide security of investors found.

This is not an empty hype. When this happens, a huge amount of investment from large companies really needs to go to the market, I think so

Don't know this thing too much actually, but i consider ETF just like an IPO in a company. Which mean the whole community admit bitcoin is official trading currency and world will make regulation about it
