Crypto Industry Reacts to Yet Another VanEck Solid X Bitcoin ETF Delay

A Bitcoin exchange-traded fund or ETF, has become a running joke across the cryptocurrency industry, with each new proposal set forth by various financial industry firms repeatedly rejected or delayed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.
The entire market of crypto investors were watching and waiting to see if today’s deadline for VanEck and Solid X’s proposal for a Bitcoin-based ETF would be rejected or approved, or delayed once again. As many expected, the deadline for the proposal has once again been extended by the SEC, further delaying a decision on if an ETF will be approved eventually.
Bitcoin ETF Delayed Once Again, Crypto Industry Yawns At Non-Event News
The potential of a Bitcoin ETF has reared its head quite a few times in recent years. The most recent Bitcoin ETF speculation took the price of Bitcoin towards $10,000 in late July as a proposal put forth by Gemini co-founders Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss.

The proposal was rejected, and the price of Bitcoin fell once again towards $6,000. Around that time, a proposal for a VanEck and Solid X Bitcoin ETF also reached its deadline with the SEC, but the proposal was delayed again and again. Each delay or rejection caused the price of Bitcoin to crash throughout the 2018 bear market.

ETF delayed (As expected)Don't think it'll impact the price a whole lot.That said I'm generally hoping & positioned for lower since yesterday.This would be a nice excuse to fill bids lower.

Bitcoin has shown much resilience in recent weeks, also shaking off a hack of Binance and the worst Tether FUD to hit the industry yet without as much as a scratch. Instead, the price of Bitcoin continues to climb along the parabolic curve that began with the April rally.

As expected, the SEC has delayed the VanEck bitcoin ETF proposal. Read the order here: https://t.co/OB3TBgVGwg.
VanEck's new deadline is August 19. The SEC can & likely will delay one more time for a final deadline of October 18.
Looks like this ended up the right explanation: https://t.co/bkzeVRt1Hg
