Benzinga - Several firms are vying for the approval of their proposed spot Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) exchange-traded funds (ETFs), hoping to capture a significant market share.

What Happened: Switzerland’s Pando Asset AG on Wednesday emerged as the 13th contender by submitting a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the Pando Asset Spot Bitcoin Trust.

Among the total 13 applications, two major players, Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (OTC:GBTC) and Blackrock Inc. (NYSE:BLK), have revised their filings just to secure a BTC ETF spot.

Analysts predict that the SEC is on the cusp of approving several spot Bitcoin ETFs. The first to cross the finish line could enjoy a significant first-mover advantage, attracting a large base of retail investors.

Since both BlackRock and Grayscale Bitcoin Trust submitted their applications for a spot Bitcoin ETF, their stock prices have experienced an upswing. We compare which of the two stocks has delivered the best returns over the past year.

BlackRock’s stock increased from $695.78 to $747.3, marking a 7.4% growth. On the other hand, GBTC saw a 242.74% surge from $9.05 to $31.02.
