BlackRock iShares ETF delisted from the DTCC again
BTC’s price pumped two days ago after the on-chain analytics platform, Lookonchain, revealed on X that the iShares spot Bitcoin trust was listed by The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC).
However, just a few hours later, they announced that the iShares spot Bitcoin trust has been removed from the DTCC’s list.
A DTCC spokesman declined to comment on the circumstances surrounding the temporary delisting. They noted that “listing is not indicative of any pending regulatory or other approval processes with respect to a particular ETF fund.”
“Appearing on the list is merely an indication that an intermediary bank has requested a DTCC code for an ETF fund and that the DTCC may process this transaction at an unspecified date in the future following SEC approval.”
