However, when shared with US TV stations CNBC, market commentators think this is the end of the long-awaited path.

If market and investor needs provide metrics that are beneficial to Bitcoin, the SEC will probably look at the applications and may draw another conclusion, Hempstead said.
“They may have different perspectives and different considerations,” he said, adding, “I don't think it is a final problem, but I don't anticipate any significant change from the SEC decision.” in the near future”.
