Why Invest in PLKA Polkadot ETC?

An easy way to invest in Polkadot:

Investing in PLKA is as simple as buying shares through your broker or bank. Unlike investing directly in Dot, there is no need to engage with the technical challenges of setting up a cryptocurrency wallet to store Dot* as your units of PLKA are safely held with your broker or bank.   *Investors only need a cryptocurrency wallet if they want to redeem for Dot.

Invest in Polkadot on a regulated exchange:

PLKA's primary listing is XETRA, one of the largest exchanges in Europe. Investors can trade with confidence knowing that all market participants are strictly vetted and carefully monitored to prevent market abuse unlike cryptocurrency exchanges, many of which are unregulated. The issuer has partnered with world-class liquidity providers to ensure ample on exchange liquidity and tight spreads.

Safe Custody:

The issuer stores the Dot backing the securities with Coinbase Custody Trust Company, a secure, regulated custodian, purpose built for holding digital assets.  Strict KYC and AML standards ensure that the provenance of all cryptocurrency in custody has been vetted.


Cryptocurrencies can be highly volatile. Investors' capital is at risk and investors may not get back the amount originally invested and should obtain independent advice before making a decision.

Any decision to invest should be based on the information contained in the relevant prospectus.

ETC securities are structured as debt securities, not as equity.

ETCs trade on exchanges like securities. They are bought/sold at market prices which may be different to the net asset value of the ETC.

This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the prospectus and to the KIID before making any final investment decisions.
