Blackrock in line to launch a Spot Bitcoin ETF

BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, has recently expressed its intention to launch a bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF), becoming the first major player in the industry to do so. This move has sparked curiosity about the timing of their decision. BlackRock’s CEO, Larry Fink, has been vocal about the potential of cryptocurrencies to revolutionize finance, likening bitcoin to “digitizing gold.” However, the question that remains unanswered is why BlackRock is choosing this particular moment to pursue a bitcoin ETF. Despite the challenging year that the crypto industry faced in 2022, with significant price declines and regulatory scrutiny, bitcoin has shown signs of a recovery in 2023.
