Grayscale tells SEC ‘no basis’ to approve Bitcoin futures ETFs and not spot ETFs
[The withholding approval of a spot ETF (backed by actual bitcoin) is the same as manipulating the price of gold using futures prices. If a spot ETF gets approved, the price goes up.

If people will buy, they will learn about bitcoin, and, MORE IMPORTANTLY, people will be moving their money from the fiat networks to the self-sovereign ramp of bitcoin. Denying a spot ETF can be seen as the old world barring the gate to the castle. -BC]
