Spot Solana exchange-traded funds (ETFs) should receive a final decision from the United States SEC around the middle of March 2025 after the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) filed applications on Monday to list VanEck and 21Shares’ proposed ETFs. 

CBOE filed two Form 19b-4 applications on July 8, one for the 21Shares Core Solana ETF and another for the VanEck Solana Trust.

The CBOE likened the prospective Solana (SOL) funds to spot Bitcoin (BTC) and spot Ether (ETH) ETFs, which the SEC approved in January and May, respectively. It said that Solana’s decentralization, throughput and speed made it resistant to manipulation that could harm investors.

“Much like Bitcoin and ETH, the Exchange believes that SOL is resistant to price manipulation and that ‘other means to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices’ exist to justify dispensing with the requisite surveillance sharing agreement,” read both filings.
