Will the SEC Really Approve a Solana ETH, Though?

Top analysts have shown enthusiasm for Solana’s ETF approval. However, the SEC earlier classified SOL as an “unregistered security” in its lawsuit against Binance and Coinbase, indicating significant regulatory challenges for the launch of a mainstream SOL investment vehicle.

To date, the SEC has classified Bitcoin and Ethereum as commodities, which simplified their path to ETF approval.

The regulatory landscape for Ethereum, however, remains uncertain. The SEC has previously sued Coinbase and Kraken for offering staking services, marking coins like SOL and ETH as securities. To navigate these complexities, issuers of spot ETFs for Ethereum had to exclude mentions of ETH staking from their filings.
