New week, new possibilities! There’s a lot of buzz right now about a potential Blackrock Bitcoin ETF. But what is it really all about? And is this development more bullish or bearish for Bitcoin? Find out in my weekly preview.

General Market Trends

At the beginning of the week, the stock market is closed due to a holiday, which usually leads to a quieter trading week. After the last meeting of the Federal Reserve (Fed), it usually takes a while for the Fed’s comments to reach the markets. However, this week is different, as Fed Chairman Jerome Powell has to testify before Congress twice a year. Although I don’t expect many surprises, it’s important to keep an eye on the Fed’s statements.

Regulation and Crypto Exchanges

Last week, Binance settled with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Some of the funds were recovered and Binance is allowed to continue operating in the U.S. However, the question remains whether there will be further consequences and whether other companies will also come under the scrutiny of regulatory authorities.

Tether and the Crypto Market

Another big topic last week was Tether (USDT). There was a massive sell-off of Bitcoin and a billion USDT was converted. This was one of the main reasons for the sell-off in the crypto market last week. There was also a critical article about Tether that has caused some shockwaves. Nevertheless, it is still possible to redeem Tether, but their statements should definitely always be taken with a grain of salt.

Blackrock Bitcoin ETF

Now we come to the main topic: the Blackrock Bitcoin ETF. There is a big debate about whether it is a real ETF or not. It is neither a traditional ETF nor a trust, but something in between. I believe it is quite bullish, but it will probably not attract new funds that are not already in other products. However, it will have a positive branding for Bitcoin.

However, there is also a downside. There is a possibility that the SEC could take control of the ETF and change the price. This is, however, very unlikely.


In summary, we are living in an exciting time for the crypto industry. Yes, there are challenges and uncertainties, but that is to be expected in such a rapidly growing and evolving field. I look forward to continuing this journey with you and seeing where the future of the crypto industry takes us.
