Following weeks of build up, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has announced that it will postpone theĀ decision on whether to allow the listing of theĀ Cboe VanEck/SolidX exchange-traded fund (ETF) backed by Bitcoin (BTC) to September 30.

According to a release published on Tuesday, the SEC has receivedĀ more than 1,300 comments on the proposed rule change toĀ the Cboe BZX Rule that would open up the ETF regulations to include digital asset-backed funds. Given the scope of information needed to make an informed decision, the SEC has chosen to buy itself some more time to officially announce.

This news comes just weeks after theĀ SECĀ rejectedĀ the Winklevossā€™ latest attempt to list a Bitcoin ETF, citing concerns over fraud and market manipulation of the digital currency. Since that time, the price of BTC has retreated and now stands at $6,550.
