Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies experienced a mixed performance on Wednesday as traders evaluated the recent rally and awaited further catalysts. One significant factor contributing to market anticipation is the expected regulatory approval of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) that hold Bitcoin.

Over the past 24 hours, Bitcoin has shown a 0.4% increase, reaching $42,726. Although it has predominantly traded within the range of $41,000 to $44,000 since early December, Bitcoin has already more than doubled in value this year.

The surge in Bitcoin's value is primarily driven by the belief that the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will likely grant approval to ETFs that seek to purchase crypto tokens directly from the spot market. The initial wave of approvals is anticipated to occur as early as January. In preparation for this, the SEC has engaged in discussions with asset managers who are eager to launch Bitcoin ETFs.

Meanwhile, Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency, gained 1.2% and reached $2,251. In the realm of smaller cryptocurrencies, Cardano showed a 0.7% increase while Solana experienced a 1.0% decline. Dogecoin witnessed a modest 0.4% increase.
