BlackRock’s SEC Attack

BlackRock has challenged the SEC on the alleged discrepancy in regulation between spot-crypto ETFs and their futures counterparts. BlackRock’s petition for an Ethereum ETF received confirmation, directly criticizing the SEC’s reluctance to approve spot crypto ETFs while welcoming their futures counterparts.


The SEC’s reluctance to allow spot-crypto ETFs arises from the perceived regulatory strength and improved safeguards associated with futures ETFs.

BlackRock claims that the SEC’s preference for specified actions does not apply to Ethereum-based ETFs. Both futures and spot ETFs, according to the financial behemoth, are derived from the same fundamental market.


No logical basis for refusing Ethereum ETF.

One noteworthy point advanced by BlackRock is that, given the SEC’s faith in the Chicago Mercantile Exchange’s market surveillance, there is no logical reason for dismissing the application for an Ethereum spot ETF.

Analysts anticipate a potential breakthrough, suggesting that the SEC may approve a spot crypto ETF in the near future. Bloomberg experts are particularly upbeat, putting the chance at 90%, with the event possibly occurring before January 10 of next year.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!

We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
