Bitcoin ETFs and Ethereum ETFs Already in The Works, Is An XRP ETF Coming Too? Analyst Shares Insights

  • As the only altcoin with a clear security status in the US, the call for XRP ETF increases among crypto enthusiasts.
  • An ETF analyst, however, doubts the possibility of an XRP ETF getting approved by the SEC under the current US regulatory framework. 

The US Securities and Exchange Commission is yet to approve its first-ever Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) after rejecting several applications from different firms. The recent application from BlackRock is, however, expected to get approval due to its ETF track record. According to reports, BlackRock has had 575 of its ETF applications approved with only one rejected. Some other companies including Fidelity that had their applications rejected have taken decisions to reapply.

It is currently the only altcoin with a clear security status in the US. XRP is back on most of the exchanges that delisted it after the lawsuit was announced. The latest to relist the digital asset is the US-based crypto exchange Gemini. The recent call for XRP ETF has caught the attention of a popular ETF analyst James Seyffart, who has shared his opinion on its possibility. 

Speaking on this, Seyffart stated that it would be difficult for XRP ETF to come to fruition in the US under the current regulatory framework.

If a spot BTC ETF is on the horizon, a spot ETH ETF can’t be far behind. With the Hinman speech, the SEC FinHub framework, and judicial decisions in Ripple and Terraform, the case grows stronger each day that ETH is not a security, even if it was initially sold as one.
