The much-awaited debut of crypto ETFs in the Australian market seems to have been pushed off for later this week. According to the Australian Financial Review, the delay is being blamed on a "prime" or "executing" broker who has failed to approve the products due to a delay in appointing a market maker for the product's launch. According to a spokesperson from 21shares, “The delay is no fault whatsoever of 21Shares, the funds or the exchange. As crypto ETFs are completely new to Australia and the infrastructure is being built from the ground up, a service provider downstream needs more time to support the launch. The issue affects all fund managers equally and has caught everyone by surprise.” https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-04-26/crypto-etfs-roll-out-in-australia-hits-snag-amid-inaugural-push
