ETC Group Physical Polkadot (Ticker: PLKA) is an exchange traded cryptocurrency (ETC) that tracks the price of Polkadot's Dot governance token. Polkadot is a blockchain protocol that enables cross-blockchain transfers of any type of data or asset.
Each PLKA Polkadot ETC is 100% physically backed by Dot and trades on European exchanges, providing investors with a safer and liquid way to gain exposure to Dot. Each unit of PLKA gives the holder a claim on a predefined amount of Dot.
PLKA is issued by ETC Group and marketed and distributed by HANetf.
