Single to sue asked the United States Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia to review the SEC's order. 

“We are extremely disappointed and completely disagree with the SEC decision to continue to reject Bitcoin Spot ETFs in the US market.” Grayscale CEO Michael Sonnenshein said.

Sonnenshein earlier announced its intention to sue the SEC in the case of denial, he argued that the regulator should not distinguish between the Bitcoin Fututres ETFs and the Bitcoin ETF Spot.

Grayscale attorney Don Verrilli said, “…The SEC is not applying consistent treatment to investment vehicles and is therefore acting arbitrarily.”
