Hong Kong’s Spot ETF Ignites Sentiment
The Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) approved spot BTC and ETH ETFs today. Although with conditional status, the approvals have sparked a new upward drive in the market. This is due to inflows recorded by the United States approval in January.

Spot crypto ETFs act as a new investment window for institutional investors to increase their exposure to the market. Crypto prices are up today after days of massive liquidations.
