Competition in the United States
Canada’s leadership in the market may face challenges in the near future. Reports indicate that prominent entities like BlackRock, Fidelity, along with crypto-focused companies like Grayscale are actively competing to launch their spot Bitcoin ETFs in the United States.
Currently, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is in the process of reviewing between eight to ten applications, all for new spot Bitcoin products, although specific timelines for their approval have not yet been provided. Further, this competition signals a potentially dynamic shift in the global landscape of Bitcoin ETFs.
