VanEck’s Solana ETF: A Bet on Trump’s 2024 Victory?

VanEck’s Bold Move

VanEck, a major investment firm, has filed for a Solana (SOL) exchange-traded fund (ETF). This move has raised eyebrows, as it’s the first such filing in the US.

Trump’s Influence

VanEck’s head of digital assets research, Matthew Sigel, has confirmed that the ETF filing is a bet on Donald Trump winning the 2024 presidential election.

Trump has recently expressed support for cryptocurrencies, earning him favor among some in the industry. However, his past views on crypto have been mixed.

SEC Approval

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) must approve the ETF before it can be listed. Some analysts believe that a change in the SEC’s leadership could make approval more likely.


VanEck is not the only firm seeking a SOL ETF. 21Shares also filed for one last week.
