BlackRock files S1 form for spot Ether ETF with SEC

The world’s largest asset manager filed the S1 form with the US SEC a week after registering iShares Ethereum Trust with the Delaware Department of State Division of Corporations.

BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, officially filed for a spot Ether Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on Nov. 15.

The move by BlackRock comes nearly a week after it registered the iShares Ethereum Trust with the Delaware Department of State Division of Corporations and nearly six months after it filed for its spot Bitcoin ETF  application.
