New Video Stirs Discussion
The approval probabilities of a bitcoin spot Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF), as published by Bitcoinist on August 2nd, have grown dramatically according to experts James Seyffart and Erik Balchunas from Bloomberg Intelligence, who have boosted their prediction to 65%. This revision’s upward trend is the result of significant developments in the sector. Notably, they had given the acceptance of ETFs a meager 1% chance only a couple months prior.
Expectations For Bitcoins ETF Approval Are Raised by President Biden’s Laser Eyes Mug?
There have been rumors that a recent video that U.S. Vice President Joe Biden shared on Twitter would improve the likelihood that a Bitcoin ETF will be approved. Biden is seen in the video drinking from a mug with laser eyes, which might represent a bright outlook for Btc and other cryptocurrencies. According to certain members of the cryptocurrency community, the color of the beam of light hitting their eyes is also significant, with blue pointing to ETH (Ethereum), and bright red pointing to Bitcoin. This focus on detail has led to further debates about the President’s position on digital assets.
James Seyffart responded to the film with his interpretations, saying that it “further strengthened his faith in the possibility of a Btc ETF gaining approval.” Seyffart provided an alternative interpretation of the film, downplaying its relevance to the bitcoin industry. He said that rather than being an intentional message about cryptocurrencies, the laser-focused eyes mug might be a reference to the “Dark Brandon” memes that became popular last year. In a similar vein, he asserted that the video might be a reference to online memes rather than a “deliberate indication of the President’s stance on cryptocurrencies.”
DeSantis Criticizes Biden’s Cryptographic Practices
Florida Governor and U.S. presidential nominee Ron DeSantis made important pledges about the future of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies if he were elected president during his latest campaign event in New Hampshire. In his campaign speech, DeSantis vowed to halt Joe Biden’s “war on Bitcoin and cryptocurrency.” They made a point of highlighting his dedication to giving Americans the opportunity to make investments in digital assets. DeSantis emphasized the value of personal choice in his remarks by saying:
“Americans will be permitted to invest in cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. You are not being compelled to do it. You can accomplish it if you want to.”
Market participants, meanwhile, are eagerly awaiting further information as the discussion over bitcoin exchange traded funds and the overall regulatory environment for cryptocurrencies continues.
