SEC's Crypto Mom on Bitcoin ETF approval: Don't Hold Your Breath

04:13 Thursday , December 06th 2018
SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce said during a fireside chat at the Digital Assest Investment Forum in Washington to "not hold your breath" when it comes to a Bitcoin ETF.
Peirce, nicknamed "Crypto Mom" by the crypto community, is an advocate for a crypto ETF and tries to pursue the SEC to approve a Bitcoin ETF soon. With the Van Eck ETF on the line in February 2019, a decision has to be made by the SEC whether they want to accept a Bitcoin ETF now, or not just yet.
"It could come tomorrow or in 20 years," she said, "I do caution people to not live or die on when a crypto or Bitcoin ETF gets approved."
