What Happens When Spot Bitcoin ETFs Are Approved?
This week the price of Bitcoin jumped more than $2,000 (~10%) in just a matter of hours, on news (rumor) of the approval of the first Bitcoin ETF.
CoinTelegraph, a well-known name and news source within the cryptocurrency space tweeted "SEC approves iShares Bitcoin spot ETF".
The problem was that this was incorrect.
Soon after, CoinTelegraph made a public apology for the inaccurate tweet and that they would conduct an internal investigation into the matter to determine how it happened.
Since that tweet, instead of falling back to its pre-tweet value, the price of Bitcoin has been steadily increasing.
This is surprisingly good news.
This 'fake news' CoinTelegraph tweet has given the market insight into what will happen when the SEC does finally approve Bitcoin ETF - The price will surge, significantly.
However, the actual approval of the Bitcoin ETF won't likely happen until at least the New Year (2024). It is speculated it will take place sometime between January to March 2024.
And while news of the approval of the Bitcoin Spot ETF will likely significantly pump the price of Bitcoin, in April we also have the Bitcoin Halving Event which historically has resulted in Bitcoin hitting new all-time highs. If that wasn't enough, 2024 is also an election year, which likely means we will also see a cut in interest rates leading up to the elections, creating favorable market conditions.
2024 is looking to be an extraordinary year for the cryptocurrency market and if you aren't already in the market, accumulating Bitcoin before news of the SEC approval would be a prudent move.
