Kelly ETFs submits Ethereum futures ETF application to the U.S. SEC

On November 30, the ETF issuing company Kelly ETFs has applied for the US Ethereum futures ETF. The company submitted an N-1A form to the US SEC. N1-A is used by investment companies seeking to form open-ended mutual funds and registered products under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Kelly Ethereum Ether Strategy ETF will hold Ethereum futures contracts traded on the federally regulated trading platform. Currently, this means that there are only CME Ethereum futures. The fund does not directly provide ETH exposure, and its structure is similar to an approved Bitcoin futures ETF. Currently, it is the only ETF futures application that the SEC needs to process. In the absence of any action by the SEC, the application will become effective after 75 days. Bloomberg ETF analysts Eric Balchunas and James Seyffart said that the probability of the ETF application being approved is about 20%.
