Investors are watching plenty of headlines in the stock market today. Whether you’re trading penny stocks or higher-priced shares, it’s tough to not follow news that is dramatically moving markets. In particular, the latest round of economic data has swayed traders into hoping for a soft-ish landing. But there is much more than the stock market news surrounding the economy. Crypto news is also fueling market sentiment and speculation.

Crypto News Today

In the latest crypto news, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTCMKTS: GBTC) has achieved a significant win against the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The victory pertains to Grayscale’s efforts to transform its over-the-counter GBTC application into a listed Bitcoin ETF.

Based on court documents dated August 29, U.S. Court of Appeals Circuit Judge Neomi Rao directed that Grayscale’s request for review be approved and the SEC’s decision to reject the GBTC listing application be overturned.

The judge previously mentioned that the SEC failed to provide a clear reason for its decision against Grayscale. However, this order doesn’t necessarily ensure the future listing of a Grayscale spot Bitcoin ETF. Michael Sonnenshein, Grayscale’s CEO, expressed gratitude for the support and mentioned that their legal team is currently examining the court’s decision.

Not The First Crypto News Headline To Turn Heads

In another round of crypto news earlier in August, Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest (NYSE: ARKK) decided to enter the race for an Ethereum Futures ETF. This move comes after the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) decided to delay its verdict on the ARK 21Shares Spot Bitcoin ETF application. ARK Invest, in collaboration with 21 Shares, has now applied for an Ethereum futures ETF, marking a strategic approach for both firms.

The filing with the SEC on August 24 indicates that ARK Invest and 21 Shares will serve as sub-adviser and sub-sub-adviser, respectively, for two distinct funds that aim to invest in Ethereum futures contracts. These funds are the ARK 21Shares Active Ethereum Futures ETF and the ARK 21Shares Active Bitcoin Ethereum Strategy ETF.

If approved, the ARK 21Shares Active Ethereum Futures ETF, with the ticker ARKZ, will invest in a collection of ether futures contracts, including those traded on regulated commodity exchanges like the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME). The fund will focus on futures contracts and will not invest directly in Ether.

The remaining assets of the fund will be allocated to short-term cash instruments to enhance liquidity and hedge against its investments in Ether futures. Additionally, ARK Invest and 21 Shares are also planning to introduce the ARK 21Shares Active Bitcoin Ethereum Strategy ETF, which will invest in both Bitcoin and Ethereum futures contracts. This strategy mirrors Valkyrie’s attempt to include ETH futures contracts in its Valkyrie Bitcoin Strategy ETF.
