This is the company's second attempt after revising its proposal last year when a similar application was rejected.

Spot Bitcoin ETF applications from other companies have also been rejected, including an application by Grayscale Investments to convert its Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) into a spot Bitcoin ETF.
