The price of bitcoin surged to nearly $30,000 Monday morning after a false rumor that the Securities and Exchange Commission approved BlackRock’s spot bitcoin ETF application circulated on the social media platform X.
BlackRock told The Wall Street Journal there hadn’t been a decision on its ETF application. “The iShares Spot Bitcoin ETF application is still under review by the SEC,” said a BlackRock spokesperson.
Crypto news site Cointelegraph first posted the rumor on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
