Global markets will be “ready to accept” a Bitcoin (BTC) exchange-traded fund (ETF) in as soon as a “couple of months,” Fatfish Internet Group CEO Kin-Wai Lau told CNBC on July 29.

Speaking to CNBC’s dedicated cryptocurrency segment, the Coin Rush, Lau expressed a firm belief in Bitcoin’s current price rally, explaining,

“It’s a very strong wave; it’s driven by institutional demand, it’s driven by adoption. [There’s]  lots of interest this time around — trading volume is several times higher than during the lows.”

Bitcoin continues to trade above $8,000 after briefly dipping to around $7,700 late last week. Despite the Winklevoss twins’ ETF receiving a second rejection on July 26, prices bounced back above $8100 shortly afterwards, reinforcing users’ belief in the robustness of Bitcoin’s return to form.
