Spot Bitcoin ETFs complete first days of trading
Spot Bitcoin ETFs have now concluded their first days of trading since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved those products on Wednesday, Jan. 10 and since trading began on Thursday, Jan. 11.
Negative sentiment toward Vanguard’s decision against supporting Bitcoin products remains circulated on social media. Bloomberg ETF analyst Eric Balchunas suggested today that “fury towards [the] SEC has been redirected at Vanguard” for its anti-Bitcoin policies. He conceded that Vanguard has the right to own listing decisions as a private company.
