The ETF was added to the list within the last six days, as there was no listing under the ticker BTCO on Oct. 25, according to the web archiver WayBack Machine.
However, being included on the list of “ETF Products” on the DTCC’s site does not guarantee future approval for the product.

The spokesperson added, “Appearing on the list does not imply an outcome for any pending regulatory or approval processes.”
