Kryptoin, a Delaware-based digital finance company, has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), seeking approval for listing an Ethereum exchange-traded fund (ETF).

In the prospectus dated August 12 submitted with the SEC, the company detailed that the investment objective of the Ethereum ETF is to provide exposure to Ethereum ‘at a price that is reflective of the actual Ethereum market where investors can purchase and sell Ethereum’.

Additionally, Kryptoin elaborated that the trust will hold Etheruem, ensuring that the price of the sarees is an actual representation of the digital asset, which will be determined on a daily basis using the CF Ether-Dollar US Settlement Price.

“[The trust] will not purchase or sell Ether directly, although the Trustee may sell Ether to pay certain expenses. Instead, when it sells or redeems its shares, it will do so in 'in-kind' transactions in blocks of 100,000 shares,” the SEC filing stated.

Is the SEC Going to Budge Now?

Kryptoin applied for a Bitcoin ETF with the US securities markets regulator in 2019, which is still under regulatory review similar to the proposals for all such crypto vehicles.

The functionality of Kryptoin Bitcoin and Ethereum ETF proposals are very similar: both of them would be listed on the Chicago Board Options Exchange (Cboe) upon approval.

Though several US companies have been pushing to receive approval for crypto ETFs, especially Bitcoin ETFs, for years now, the SEC is reluctant to clear any. Most recently, Valkyrie filed for an ETF that will be exposed to Bitcoin futures. A few other companies have even filed for Ethereum ETF.

Meanwhile, neighboring Canada is taking a different approach to crypto investment vehicles and has approved multiple Bitcoin and Ethereum ETFs.
