A since-deleted and unauthorized post made by the US Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) X account, @SECGov, on Tuesday claimed that the agency had officially listed Bitcoin ETFs on all registered US national securities exchanges.

"Today the SEC grants approval for [Bitcoin] ETFs for listing on all registered national securities exchanges," the post read. "The approved Bitcoin ETFs will be subject to ongoing surveillance and compliance measures to ensure continued investor protection." 



The SEC has since made a post to address the matter.

"The @SECGov X account was compromised, and an unauthorized post was posted," it wrote on X. "The SEC has not approved the listing and trading of spot bitcoin exchange-traded products."

Various users responded by quoting a prior SEC post in what appeared to be an attempt to highlight irony.

"Thanks, can you elaborate on this earlier tweet of yours?" asked on user.



Another wrote, "This you?" 



This is a breaking story and will be updated.
