Except the USD doesnt go up in value when they “produce more”
If they create a bunch of paper iou btcs, and btc price doubles. How do they bring double value to their customers?
I can see the argument that money that WOULD have went into btc now goes into a paper btc etf, and thus is lost. But again if btc doubles the boomers will want double the value back.
This is all ignoring the fact that its supposed to be a SPOT ETF with a 3rd party custodian

>> No.56869176

This is the kind of information you should be reading if you want to FUD or refute FUD about ETF's. It doesn't directly answer my key question, but it gives you an idea of the sort of things being required for approval. the SEC is specifically looking to cut out price manipulation avenues.

This. The ETF's being proposed right now are basically custodial accounts - You buy the ETF and it buys btc on your behalf and stores it in a custodial wallet that is yours alone.

This entire thing is about letting people buy BTC via tax-locked savings/investment accounts.

>> No.56869190

This gets into it more - the spot ETF's are required to own bitcoin

>> No.56869196

for cryptofags with no knowledge of stocks, think of these ETF's as a stablecoin like Tether or USDC, but in the form of a stock you can buy with an investment account. That stablecoin owns 1:1 BTC and shares of the stock.

>> No.56869209

>This entire thing is about letting people buy BTC via tax-locked savings/investment accounts.
indeed, and when the ETF launches, the people with investment and pension accounts can switch some of their funds into BTC without triggering a tax event. so will they FOMO like the rest of us have? that's the bet

>> No.56869239

That's exactly right, it's the entire point. This unlocks a fuckton of retail cash that is not available to buy bitcoin right now. You have to understand that most older people have retirement/investment accounts with tax-deferred money. A 401k is the most standard version - you put 401k money in from your salary and you do not pay taxes on it. You are allowed to withdraw after age 65 or whatever. If you want to take the money out before that, you have to pay a large penalty for the withdrawl, PLUS the tax you would have owed as it is income. For this reason people do not cash money out of their 401k to do things like buy Bitcoin. By allowing you to buy bitcoin without first selling 401k investments into cash, you avoid the taxes and penalties. This means all of the money in 401k accounts in the US is suddenly potential liquidity for Bitcoin. This is a lot of fucking money.

>> No.56869263

Or maybe he figures ETF will pump BTC like it did gold, he sells, buys other assets, dgaf what happens to BTC after? Not saying he does, just speculation. Didn't Max have a coin called Maxcoin?

Can they not buy Microstratregy instead?

Why do they need an ETF if they already sold everything they like?

>> No.56869297

the known supply of BTC is absolutely critical to understanding its utility and value. You simply cannot fuck with it the way you can other assets like Gold, because you can't be naked. Everyone has the ability to know how much BTC exists and where it exists. If someone wants to plan naked games they can only do so in the short term and with very high risk. The easy transferability of BTC means there is no reason to not have it change custody - you just beam it to a digital wallet, no security or storage needed.

If Bitcoin always existed, Gold would never have been used for this function.

>> No.56869311

So you know enough about Max to know Max coin. But don’t know enough about Max to know he has more money than god and doesn’t give a fuck about your faggot fud about pushing fake news to manipulate the price. Gtfo you fucking weirdo

>> No.56869315

Buying a trust or fund or a stock with exposure (miners, etc) to BTC is speculative and has risk associated with the business itself, who runs it, and all of that. It's not the same as owning actual Bitcoin. Purchasing via ETF is actual ownership of a coin, in that you can sell the actual coin for the spot price at any time. The assorted rules being required ensure that, and are why BTC buys via market ETF funds are about to draw in a ton of investment.

As I said above, the best way to think about spot BTC ETF's is to think of them like a stablecoin that has a 1:1 reserve, backed up by the SEC.

>> No.56869329

>them like a stablecoin
I want to emphasize this. Stablecoins are now being made FOR BITCOIN, not USD. Think about that. People want their USD funds stored in Bitcoin instead.

>> No.56872276

His argument doesn't make sense. People buying Spot ETF are indirectly buying btc. That money will go to spot markets (yes I know that Blackrock/Fidelity etc have probably accumulated some btc beforehand). The only way it has "a negative effect" to btc price is the etf fees which will be relatively low. Those fees will go to blackrock, fidelity etc, not to btc.

He is just engagement farming ("last warning" lmao). The date of ETF approvals will probably bring some volatility including some sell supply from sellthenewooors but it will be just the way market works. ETFs won't bring any artificial supply to btc. Like I said, fees are the only money and value that are "lost" due to ETFs.
