Analysts are currently focusing on a potential timeframe for the endorsement of Spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), identifying a window between January 5 and 10, 2024. Previously, the analysts’ November 17 deadline passed without any noticeable action from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The deadline for Hashdex and Franklin Templeton ETF is anticipated to be between January 5-8. This aligns with the broader timeframe of January 5-10. During this period, approval for all twelve spot BTC ETF filings could potentially come to fruition.

This updated timeline dismisses any remaining expectations for a December approval, as recent SEC developments shift the odds to 2024.
