CFB Talks Digital Assets Episode 20: An Insider’s View of the Spot Bitcoin ETF saga with Bitwise CIO Matt Hougan

It's crunch time for the seven major investment management firms aiming to use our CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate - New York Variant (BRRNY) to benchmark the first U.S. spot bitcoin ETFs! The SEC is expected to come to a final decision in coming days. A 'yes' will change the face of mainstream investing forever. At this critical juncture, we are honoured and unbelievably fortunate to have Matt Hougan, Chief Investment Officer of Bitwise, as our guest on the latest CFB Talks Digital Assets podcast. Matt is, of course, one of the best-known, and most widely respected, institutional digital asset leaders, at one of the longest established institutional crypto investment firms. You do not want to miss his accredited insider's view of the run-up to this potential watershed moment! Plus, his assessment of how things will shake out if, and when, access to Bitcoin in the mass-market ETF wrapper finally becomes a reality.

Listen in to our exclusive conversation for Matt's take on the highlights below, and more...

benchmark the edge for tracking and replication
