According to the official SEC filing on May 20, 2019, the exchange seeks more information on the proposed rule changed. The exchange has further inquired more information on the exchange-traded fund. Moreover, it stated that there are 25 comments lined-up on the proposed rule change. However, at present, SEC’s major concern is with 14 comments received regarding VanEck Bitcoin ETF.

“On January 30, 2019, Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc.
