Lynn had earlier revealed her views on digital assets on Wednesday, stating her openness to cryptocurrencies and the NYSE's consideration for trading them if only the crypto market had clearer regulations.

Meanwhile, US financial advisors still have skeptical views on investments in Bitcoin ETFs. Despite the enthusiasm surrounding Bitcoin ETFs, including its recent feat of hitting 1 million BTC in assets under management (AUM), these experts still hold reservations about the number one cryptocurrency.

According to a CNBC report, most advisors stated that they are "neither initiating conversations nor fielding client inquiries about the ETFs." CNBC had surveyed a dozen members of an advisor council, including Baker. The results pointed out two major concerns of these individuals: volatility and regulatory uncertainties.

Before the launch of Bitcoin ETFs, these advisors had previously cited Bitcoin's high volatility as a reason for their skepticism.

However, many of these advisors believe that consistent inflows in the ETFs over the years would lower Bitcoin's volatility, making it more adoptable.
