He further stated that increasing demand and visible institutional interest rise for Bitcoin investors is a good sign for future development and price evaluation of Bitcoin.

He noted that the fact that lots of professional investors are actively investing in Bitcoin spot ETFs is big news. He highlighted some of the top firms that are invested in spot Bitcoin ETF such as Cambridge Investment Research, Hightower Advisors, and Bracebridge Capital.

As of 15th May 2024, Wisconsin revealed that the state has allocated $164 million in BlackRock and Grayscale shares. Another Cointelegraph article has reported quotes from CNBC analyst Brain Kelly about the next big three coins for upcoming ETF listings.

The crypto market analyst posted on X recently noting that Solana is one of the tokens primed for ETF filings in the United States. On 22nd May speaking at the CNBC broadcast Fast Money he noted that SEC is going to rule on one at least of the spot applications.

Crypto Analysts Disagree with Brain Kelly’s Crypto ETF Prediction

Some of the crypto market analysts in the industry have also voiced their disagreement with the stance of Brain Kelly on Solana becoming the next spot ETF. One of them is Nate Geraci working as President of The ETF Store.

Geraci claims that spot Solana ETFs are unlikely to get a listing approval until the Chicago Mercantile ETF for Solana futures is announced or congress approves clear crypto regulations.

At the time, only crypto ETFs to get approval in the United States are backed by either Bitcoin or Ethereum. Speaking on the matter, Bloomberg analyst James Seyffart seconded the opinion of Geraci and added that the prerequisites for a Solana ETF such as getting a CFTC regulatory market in the United States could take a few years.

At the same time, Seyffart retained that Gary Gensler and SEC have already flagged Solana as an alleged security in the lawsuits against Coinbase and Kraken.

Adam Cochran of Cinneamhain Ventures has claims that it is more likely next top candidates for a spot ETF listing are likely to be Dogecoin or Litecoin. He further clarified that these predictions are based on the fact that both Dogecoin and Litecoin are powered by proof-of-work mechanisms like Bitcoin.
