VanEck Files for First Solana ETF with US SEC

VanEck, an investment management firm, has submitted an application to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the first Solana (SOL) exchange-traded fund (ETF). This move positions VanEck as a pioneer in the U.S. ETF market for Solana, a blockchain platform known for its high transaction speeds and low fees. The proposed Solana ETF would track the spot price of SOL, providing investors with direct exposure to the cryptocurrency. VanEck’s head of digital asset research, Matthew Sigel, likened Solana to other digital commodities like Bitcoin and Ethereum, noting its use for transaction fees and computational services on its blockchain. The filing has elicited mixed reactions, with some questioning Solana’s decentralization, while others view it as a smart strategic move. If approved, the Solana ETF will be listed on the Cboe BZX Exchange.
