It has been speculated that the rise in the crypto markets recently has been due to positive expectations of the decisions regarding the crypto ETFs.

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is now reviewing several applications for crypto ETFs. Recently, SEC announced that they will postpone their decision regarding the application from the fund company Direxion until 21 September.

However, SEC has now announced its decision regarding an application for a bitcoin ETF from the investors Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. For the second time, SEC rejects their application, Coindesk reports.

It has been speculated that the rise in the crypto markets recently has been due to positive expectations of the decisions from SEC regarding the ETFs. But after the rejection on the Winklevoss twins’ application, the bitcoin price dropped – from almost $8,300 to under $8,000.
