Attorneys for asset management company Grayscale criticized the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for allowing the first leveraged bitcoin exchange-traded fund while having rejected previous efforts for a spot fund. Grayscale lawyer Donald Verrilli argued that a leveraged bitcoin ETF is “an even riskier investment product” in a letter sent Monday to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. “The fact that the Commission has allowed a leveraged bitcoin futures ETP to begin trading demonstrates that the Commission continues to arbitrarily treat spot bitcoin ETPs differently than bitcoin futures ETPs,” Verrilli said. The Volatility Shares 2x Bitcoin Strategy ETF, or BITX, became effective last month after not being rejected by the SEC. The agency allowed the first bitcoin futures ETF to trade in 2021. Grayscale brought a case against the SEC last year for rejecting its proposal to convert its flagship fund, GBTC, into a spot bitcoin ETF. The SEC has reasoned that futures products are harder to manipulate in part because they are based on prices from the CME, which is regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
