The Securities and Exchange Commission returned earlier filings to Cboe and the Nasdaq because they didn’t name the spot bitcoin exchange with which they are expected to have a “surveillance-sharing agreement” or provide enough information about those surveillance arrangements, The Journal previously reported.

Cboe refiled applications Friday afternoon for spot bitcoin ETFs on behalf of Fidelity, WisdomTree, VanEck, Invesco and Ark Investment Management, saying it expects to enter surveillance-sharing agreements with Coinbase.

Nasdaq’s filing of its resubmitted application became available online Monday. Its filing on behalf of asset manager BlackRock also said it would work with Coinbase to monitor trading.

An ETF that tracks the price of Bitcoin would mark a watershed moment for the industry because it would provide wider access to the cryptocurrency. It would allow investors to buy and sell bitcoin through a brokerage account as quickly as shares of stock.

Bitcoin’s price edged higher Monday. Shares of some Bitcoin-related companies also rose.
