September 2022, London

HANetf, Europe’s first independent white-label ETF and ETC platform, and leading provider of digital asset ETPs, has published its inaugural Digital Assets & Crypto Review, covering the first half of 2022.

The review contains an in-depth analysis of recent developments in the world of digital assets, including articles written by experts covering topics such as how the cryptocurrency sell off has affected Bitcoin miners, what the collapse of Terra Luna means for cryptocurrencies, and what investors can expect as we venture into the Metaverse.

As part of the Digital Assets & Crypto Review, HANetf also conducted an extensive survey, which was circulated to 75 wealth managers across Europe.

The results of the survey indicated that 75% of respondents expect to increase their exposure to cryptocurrencies over the next 12 months, with Bitcoin being the favoured coin by a strong margin.

Furthermore, over half the respondents anticipate a stricter regulatory environment for digital assets and cryptocurrencies over the next three years. According to experts in the crypto field, clearer and firmer regulations should be a welcome change for investors, as it would potentially bring greater stability to a notoriously volatile market.
