Although the crypto market’s year-long downturn has yet to reverse, this nascent ecosystem saw a positive announcement on Thursday, as a financial services provider refiled a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) application to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Leading Bitcoin ETF Application Refiled
Per previous reports from NewsBTC, one mere week ago, VanEck, CBOE, and SolidX Partners suddenly pulled their collaborative Bitcoin ETF application. While little was known initially, Jan Van Eck, the incumbent chief executive at the firm that shares his surname, took to CNBC’s “ETF Edge” segment to touch on his partner’s rationale behind the sudden shift.
In the interview, led by Bob Pisani, Van Eck explained that the government shutdown, which finally ended earlier this week, disallowed his firm from discussing pertinent regulatory matters with the SEC, run with a skeleton crew at the time. And as such, the three firms deemed it logical to pull their application, specifically in a bid to disallow an automatic rejection or approval, which could have catalyzed complications.
However, according to Gabor Gurbacs, the head of VanEck’s crypto division, the application has been filed again, this time, with the American government being fully open. On Twitter, the crypto believer wrote:

From a preliminary look, the document, filed by the CBOE and released in tandem with Gurbacs’ tweet, is effectively near-identical to its previous, pre-shutdown filing. And as such, it can be assumed that the reopening of the government reassured VanEck that its Bitcoin investment vehicle proposal could be approved in due time.
Crypto Community Roars
As Gurbacs’ tweet propagated, echoing off the walls of the Internet, crypto’s most fervent commentators were quick to convey their thoughts on the matter.
Barry Silbert, the founder of the crypto conglomerate Digital Currency Group, quickly tweeted Gurbacs’ message on the matter, conveying the news excitedly to his followers.
