The launch of the ETF that will hold Bitcoin futures but not BTC itself will finally launch after a 75-day review by the US SEC regulatory agency spearheaded by Gary Gensler.

The news that the ETF just may be approved was published last week. However, it has been confirmed now.

The flagship cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, has soared on the expectation of this ETF launch and reached a half-a-year high of $62,944 on Friday and earlier today it traded slightly lower – at $62,288 per coin.

Thus, BTC is inching close to its April all-time high of $64,895.
