Among the biggest cryptocurrencies, eos and bitcoin have dipped the most.

Many have pointed out that the sharp decline in the crypto markets recently has been due to the fact that the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has decided to postpone their decision regarding a bitcoin ETF application from the companies Vaneck and Solidx until the end of September.

Others have argued that the news of the postponement has been quite expected and that, instead, the decline is due to the fact that many big crypto traders have sold their crypto assets on the so-called over-the-counter (OTC) market.

“SEC hasn’t had the answers to their questions yet”

And now, Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of the New York-based crypto fund BKCM, considers that all those who sell bitcoin because of the SEC’s postponement are wrong.

“It (bitcoin) has had a tremendous run off of $5,800, and that was all really because people thought there was going to be a bitcoin ETF. The SEC came out and postponed that decision. A little spoiler alert, on September 30, SEC will likely postpone it again, because the market is not ready for it and the SEC hasn’t had the answers to their questions yet”, Brian Kelly says to CNBC, according to CCN.
