Tom Conner Quoted in Law360: “BlackRock Filing Ignites New Hope for Bitcoin ETF Approval”

"If BlackRock and the other funds are able to convince the SEC that the underlying spot markets have evolved, and they are now so connected to the futures market that bad guys will be caught through the surveillance agreement, then maybe they get approved on that basis," Conner stated.
