The SEC staff’s questioning of details about the recent filings for Bitcoin ETPs caused a scramble by the Nasdaq and Cboe on Friday. Both exchanges amended the applications they submitted for Bitcoin ETPs that could be listed on their exchange to answer questions from the SEC staff about what crypto trader would be providing their pricing data. In every case, the answer was Coinbase Custody Trust Company.
The identity of the exchange was requested by SEC staff that is reviewing the surveillance strategy meant to ensure that the price for Bitcoin used by the ETP is not manipulated. The surveillance feature was unveiled by BlackRock two weeks ago and competitors followed suit, with the Cboe amending its client filings with a similar feature on Wednesday.
The Cboe amended its filing again on Friday to update the identity of the exchange.
The fund firms making or amending filings for a Bitcoin ETP include:
Ark Invest (Cboe)
Van Eck (Cboe)
That Coinbase is the trading venue providing pricing for the arrangements is not a surprise as one of the requirements is that the pricing should be from a major exchange.
The applications must be approved by a majority of the five SEC commissioners to become effective.
Larry Fink, CEO of BlackRock.
