The ETF application was created by Crescent Crypto Index Services LLC, a subsidiary of Crescent Crypto Asset Management LLC, to track the market capitalization and price performance of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), which was filed on May 9th by the SEC. A public announcement was made.

The ETF, known as the USCF Crescent Crypto Index Fund (stock code "XBET"), was initiated by US Commodity Funds LLC (USCF), which will invest XBET's assets in two cryptocurrency portfolios. The application note says:

“XBET is an exchange-traded fund. Most investors who decide to buy or sell XBET stocks place trade orders through their brokers, which means they may charge custom brokerage commissions and fees. XBET stocks are expected to be Trading on the NYSE Arca, code 'XBET', and trading like the other publicly traded securities at market prices throughout the trading day."

According to the submitted documents, USCF is a commodity fund operator regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the National Futures Association and is subject to the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA).

XBET will be added to the list of cryptocurrency ETFs that the SEC is currently reviewing. Earlier, the SEC postponed the decision on two bitcoin ETFs at the end of March. One was jointly submitted by Bitwise Asset Management and the New York Stock Exchange Arca (NYSE Arca), and the other was jointly submitted by VanEck and SolidX and Cboe BZX.

Although the SEC has not yet approved any cryptocurrency ETFs, the review of ETFs by regulators may be a matter of time.

In early February, SEC Commissioner Robert Jackson said in an interview with Roll Call that the cryptocurrency ETF proposal would eventually "meet the standards set by regulators."
