JPMorgan believes that the approval of a spot Bitcoin ETF by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is unlikely to have a significant impact in the crypto market. They state that Bitcoin funds, including futures-based and physically backed funds, have attracted little investor interest since Q2 2021. However, they do acknowledge the advantages of having a spot Bitcoin ETF, including greater opportunities, direct exposure, enhanced liquidity, and price transparency. The note from the JPMorgan strategist also mentions the issues surrounding custody and the need for more accurate reflection of real-time supply.
