As previously reported by Cointelegraph, WisdomTree has been actively launching ETPs in Europe despite regulatory hurdles in the United States. The US Securities and Exchange Commission in late 2021 rejected WisdomTree’s spot bitcoin ETF after delaying a decision about the product several times. The company afterwards changed its cash BTC ETF submissionwhich US Bank named as custodian for its BTC trust.
