According to the CEO of crypto payment startup Abra says “the reason the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has insofar denied crypto exchange-traded funds (ETFs) is that the crypto industry does not fit the applicant archetype.”

Speaking in an interview with CNBC’s “The Coin Rush,” Bill Barhydt suggested that the SEC has rejected crypto ETF applications because “people who are doing the applications don’t fit the mold of who the SEC is used to approving.”

Barhydt said that in order to receive approval for an ETF, there should be an applicant who “looks, feels and smells” the way the SEC expects them to. He further noted that a trusted financial organization has better chances to get approval than a startup or a relatively unknown company. Barhydt predicted that the SEC will finally approve a Bitcoin (BTC) ETF next year:

“It’s going to happen in the next year, I would actually make a bet on it. There is too much demand for it.”

Barhydt’s statements say the rejections of Bitcoin ETF applications. In July, the SEC denied an appeal for the application of a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund by brothers Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss. On August 7, the regulator postponed its decision on the listing and trading of a BTC ETF from investment firm VanEck and financial services company SolidX until September 30.

Last month, Pantera Capital CEO Dan Morehead suggested that a BTC ETF would take “quite a long time,” saying that crypto adoption was still in its early stages. Morehead noted that the most recent asset that gained approval from the SEC for ETF certification was copper, a metal that “has been on earth for 10,000 years.”

Bitcoin is trading at $7,377 which is more than 1 percent.
