The SEC acknowledged NYSE Arca’s proposed rule change to allow for this listing in a follow-up filing dated June 10. There is now a 21-day window for the public to submit feedback on the application. The SEC will have 45 days after public participation to decide, possibly by the end of July 2024.

The SEC’s acknowledgement marks the start of the review process which is not the same as approval. ProShares’ debut in the spot Ethereum ETF market is in line with the approval of multiple other prospective issuers’ 19b-4 filings in May 2024.

The withdrawal of Ark Invest and 21Shares from a joint ETF application was recently approved by the SEC. With this approval, 21Shares can move forward on its own and the standard 30-day delay has been waived, allowing the change to take effect immediately. This decision was made because it was determined that it will not have a major effect on investor protection or competition.

Despite these occurrences, the S-1 filings that potential issuers of spot Ethereum ETFs submitted on May 31 are still waiting for feedback. At least two issuers have yet to receive the SEC’s comments, which were initially anticipated to be received by June 7. The 19b-4 filing and the S-1 filing, which are currently being reviewed, are two crucial steps in the approval process for these ETFs.

Significant developments in the crypto ETF sector include the approval of Ark Invest’s separation from 21Shares and the acknowledgment of ProShares’ spot Ethereum ETF application. These developments demonstrate the growing acceptance by regulators as well as the possibility of market growth. The SEC’s decision in the days to come will have a significant bearing on Ethereum ETFs’ future and how they affect the larger financial market.
