The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when sold or redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For the most recent month-end and/or quarter-end performance, please refer to the charts above. The market price is the final price at which a security is traded on a given trading day. Net Asset Value (NAV) is value per share on a specific date or time. Returns less than one year are cumulative. Because the Fund will invest primarily in BITCOIN futures contracts and other derivative instruments based on the price of BITCOIN, an investment in the Fund will subject the investor to the risks of the BITCOIN market, and this could result in substantial fluctuations in the price of the Fund's shares.
There will only ever be 21 million bitcoin, making it one of the world’s only scarce and immutable assets.
The Hashdex Bitcoin Futures ETF is the first bitcoin futures ETF regulated under the 1933 Securities Act (‘33 Act). Exchange-traded products regulated under the ‘33 Act provide a level of operational diligence, disclosure, and investor protection consistent with ETFs regulated under the Investment Company Act of 1940, while also having some key differences that make ‘33 Act funds more appropriate for many investors, including tax efficiency and 100% exposure to the underlying crypto assets.
Attempts to create an internet-based “digital cash” began in the 1990s, but each had shortcomings that prevented them from becoming mainstream. This changed after the pseudonymous Satoshi Nakamoto released “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System” in 2008, describing a new protocol for exchanging value without a bank, government, or other third party. The network launched a few months after the paper’s release and the first bitcoin transaction took place on January 12, 2009. Bitcoin, with its combination of technological tools and economic incentives, promised a new, more equitable financial system.
The simplest definition of a blockchain is a decentralized public ledger where transactions are confirmed by a network of compensated participants. Bitcoin’s blockchain was a novel idea due to the combination of technologies used to create a truly decentralized and immutable public ledger. Previously, financial transactions were dependent on banks and other entities managing both sides of the transaction, including maintaining personal information about the parties and placing restrictions on certain transactions.
Investor demand for bitcoin products has accelerated in recent years, but there has not been regulatory approval for a spot bitcoin ETF in the U.S. We believe the Hashdex Bitcoin Futures ETF will help many investors gain exposure to bitcoin in a familiar and regulated way.
Directly investing in crypto assets can include challenges such as self-custody and risks like exchange hacks and theft. ETFs are renowned for their efficiency and popularity as vehicles to access various markets and investment themes. They are structured in a manner that can offer superior liquidity and price efficiencies compared to other investment products.
Simple access to bitcoin.
The definitive ETF for a new generation of investing.
