Asset management titan BlackRock submitted an amended S-1 filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for its proposed spot Bitcoin ETF (exchange-traded fund) on December 4, while Bitwise also filed an amendment for its application.

Analysts say these latest amendments signal ongoing discussions with the regulator that are helping to fuel anticipation of SEC approvals in January.

“The wheel is still turning,” tweeted Bloomberg Intelligence analyst James Seyffart. “Both the SEC and these issuers are working hard to iron things out. These filings are likely the result of many conversations and a lot of man hours on/between both sides.”

In its updated filing, BlackRock rephrased the language related to what measures it would take to monitor for unusual price movements. The amendment also covered anti-money laundering compliance and included an audited statement from PricewaterhourseCoopers.

The regulator has not yet approved a spot Bitcoin Fund and has delayed all of the applications it has received to date.

Blackrock Addresses ”Unresolved Questions” Around Bitcoin ETF

But anticipation is building that approvals are imminent. After BlackRock met with the SEC last month, it said the regulator had ”certain unresolved questions” around balance sheet impacts and around balance sheet impacts.  BlackRock then proposed a solution that could address the concerns brought forward by the SEC.

Scott Johnson from Van Buren Capital speculated in an X post that BlackRock’s proposal “should” satisfy concerns brought forward by the SEC if the only issue is the balance sheet US BD market maker.

He continued by saying that the SEC “is obviously giving multiple issuers the same or very similar instructions.”
