Since listing on Deutche Boerse’s
Xetra in late June 2020, BTCetc
Bitcoin Exchange Traded Crypto (ticker BTCE) has become the most liquid 100%
physically backed bitcoin ETP
in the world with a record trading
volume day on 18 November of over 2 million units or USD$36million. Our Bitcoin ETF has already surpassed USD$160million assets
under management (AuM) and has the highest turnover of all listings on XETRA’s
ETN Segment for October 2020 and November to date.
BTCE tracks the price of bitcoin
very closely and does not trade at a large premium. This is because our Bitcoin ETF can be
easily converted into bitcoin and so it naturally tracks the price of the
underlying asset very closely.
In the last 30 days Bid-Ask
spreads averaged just 12.1bps
and is often lower than 5bp.
High on-exchange liquidity and tight spreads are important to investors because
it greatly reduces market impact when trading in size. This improves overall trading
performance which means better investment returns.
BTCE tracks the price of Bitcoin
and is 100% physically backed, providing investors with safe and transparent
way to gain exposure to Bitcoin. BTCE
was also the world’s first central counterparty cleared bitcoin ETP6. It
is UCITS eligible and is distributed and marketed by HANetf.
Bradley Duke, CEO of ETC Group
“With BTCE, our mission was always to bring investors a better way to invest
in Bitcoin. We wanted a product that would trade on a major exchange, was
highly liquid, tracked the price of bitcoin accurately, was fully fungible with
bitcoin and was engineered with investor security front and centre. We are
proud of what we have achieved with BTCE and the high trading volumes and
spectacular rise in AUM means the investment community is recognising BTCE as
the best in class product for investment in bitcoin.”
Maximilian Monteleone, Head of
Business Development at ETC Group added “By bringing the trading of
bitcoin onto one of the top stock exchanges in Europe, investors don’t have to
worry about the real risks associated with trading bitcoin on unregulated
markets or, more importantly, the dangers associated with transferring and
storing bitcoin themselves. BTCE trades just like a stock and is safely held in
the investor’s securities account at their regulated broker or bank.”
When you trade Bitcoin ETFs and ETPs your capital is at risk.
Approved by BaFin, the German
financial regulator, BTCE is structured as an exchange traded product (ETP)
that is physically backed by Bitcoin. Each unit of BTCE gives the holder a
claim on a predefined amount of bitcoin - a structure very similar to
physically-backed gold exchange traded commodities, and allows investors the
option for redemption in bitcoin. For
every unit of BTCE, there is bitcoin stored in regulated, insured, institutional-grade
safe custody. The entire ETP structure is based on a transparent and verifiable
process to ensure that the provenance of all bitcoin in custody has been
strictly vetted. BTCE is UCITS eligible.
