The crypto market is witnessing rejuvenated positive sentiment. Bitcoin (BTC) is leading the market, with other assets following behind. If BTC sustains its rally, other assets, such as Ethereum (ETH) and Solana (SOL), will likely follow. BTC’s rally, however, is most probably fueled by the anticipation of a spot BTC ETF (Exchange Traded Fund). If the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) approves a spot BTC ETF application in early 2024, we may enter another bull run. However, if the SEC denies the application, we may see a dip in prices.
