BlackRock Files Prospectus for Spot Ether ETF

Source: CoinDesk

“BlackRock (BLK), the world’s largest asset manager, has filed an S-1 form with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for its iShares Ethereum Trust, a spot ether exchange-traded fund (ETF). This move follows last week’s corporate registration of that name and Nasdaq’s filing of a 19b-4 with the SEC seeking approval for the spot ETF. … Along with several other asset managers, BlackRock currently is awaiting word from the SEC on listing a spot bitcoin ETF that could open up average investor access to the crypto dramatically.” (11/16/23)
