Crypto News this Week:

SEC delays verdict on BlackRock’s ETF application; Will Bitcoin ETFs see the light of day?
The SEC has opted to delay its verdict on several Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposals.
Grayscale Triumphs Over SEC in Quest for Spot Bitcoin ETF
A federal appeals court ruled in Grayscale’s favor, directing the SEC to reconsider its prior refusal of Grayscale’s plan to transform its Bitcoin Trust into an ETF.
X (Twitter) Secures License for Crypto Integration
The transformation of Twitter into X and its subsequent dive into the crypto is not just a mere business pivot; it’s a reflection of the evolving digital landscape.

What Happened This Week?

The crypto market pumped this week with Bitcoin reaching $27,977 on the news that a federal appeals court ruled in Grayscale's favor, directing the SEC to reconsider its prior refusal of Grayscale's plan to transform its Bitcoin Trust into an ETF.

However, a day later the SEC got its revenge and on Thursday announced that it would postpone its decision on seven Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposals, including the one submitted by BlackRock, the world's largest asset manager resulting in the market dumping and Bitcoin now trading at $25,700.

It's been a rollercoaster this week with Bitcoin ETF news driving the crypto market up and down.

Many analysts agree it's not "if" but "when" the Bitcoin ETF will be approved.

The SEC has delayed their decision for 45 days, which means the market will be waiting at least until mid-October for a verdict. I have been saying to our members that the next bull run will not take place until around November, which would tie in nicely with the SEC's vedict.

What will happen When Bitcoin ETFs are Approved?

There will likely be a massive price surge in both Bitcoin and the overall market and this may initiate the next bull run for crypto (which is timed to the Bitcoin Halving event).

Bitcoin ETFs will draw in a broader range of retail investors as well as attract more institutional investors into the crypto space - Institutions prefer regulated and traditional investment vehicles, and a Bitcoin ETF fits that bill. With companies like Blackrock, the world's largest asset manager, we could see a tremendous amount of institutional money pushed into the crypto space.

It's almost certain that ETFs will be approved and when they are, the market will see a massive price surge.

If you have been thinking of investing in crypto, the best time to start buying is now before the SEC publically approves Bitcoin ETFs.

In this month's Altcoin Pick, we identified the one crypto we believe will see more growth than any other crypto project on this news - And it's not Bitcoin.

Toncoin (TON) +35.6% - Ranked #11

TON (The Open Network) was a decentralized blockchain technology initially developed by the Telegram team, and spearheaded by Nikolai and Pavel Durov. Telegram withdrew from TON in May 2020 due to legal issues with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

The project aimed to promote widespread cryptocurrency adoption and was envisioned as a platform for decentralized apps. To fund its development, Telegram initiated a private offering of its cryptocurrency, "Gram." However, legal disputes with the SEC halted its distribution. After Telegram's exit, other projects, like "Free TON," continued the development using the open-source code, introducing the "TON Crystal" token.

Maker (MKR) +15.1% - Ranked #40

Maker (MKR) is the governance token for MakerDAO, a decentralized organization on the Ethereum blockchain responsible for the stablecoin DAI, which is pegged to the US dollar. MKR holders can vote on changes to the Maker Protocol, including decisions about collateral and risk parameters.
