ETC Group announces that it is listing its market-leading ETCs - BTCetc -ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (ticker BTCE) ‘BTCE’ and ETHetc - ETC Group Physical Ethereum (ticker: ZETH) ‘ZETH’ on Euronext Paris in EUR and on Euronext Amsterdam in USD on 1 June 2021. The ETCs are issued in Germany by ETC Group and marketed and distributed by HANetf. Both products have been market leaders in terms of trading volumes and assets under management (AuM) since they launched on the Deutsche Börse2 . The products are available on Euronext for professional investors only.

These latest listings of ETC Group’s flagship products are in response to continuing high demand for physically backed crypto ETPs, especially by European financial institutions who increasingly seek diversification through exposure to the most popular digital assets. BTCE and ZETH are among the first crypto based ETPs listed on Euronext exchanges.

BTCetc -ETC Group Physical Bitcoin is currently Europe's most traded physical Bitcoin ETC in Q1, 20213 having launched on XETRA in June 2020 and the SIX Swiss Exchange in January 2021. The product has seen assets under management grow to over $1 billion in just seven months4 , and has been the top exchange traded product (ETP) performer for inflows, daily turnover and spreads among a total of eight Bitcoin ETPs within Q1, 2021 in Europe5 .

Bradley Duke, CEO of ETC Group comments:

“The success of BTCetc -ETC Group Physical Bitcoin and ETHetc - ETC Group Physical Ethereum is down to the team’s commitment and focus on customer centric innovation in product development. Whilst ETC Group’s listings in Germany and Switzerland are open to international as well as local investment, we recognise the benefits of listing on more country exchanges to make it easier for local investors to gain access to secure, regulated digital assets-backed securities. These latest listings in Paris and Amsterdam, both key financial hubs in Europe, increase the availability and ease of access to our ETC products for a wider range of institutional investors.”

Amongst its other products, ETC Group’s Physical Ethereum ETC ‘ZETH’ has seen its assets6 under management (AuM) surpass USD$100 million in under three months since its initial launch on Deutsche Börse’s XETRA platform in March 2021. ETC Group´s Physical Litecoin ETC was first listed on XETRA in April 2021.

The cryptocurrency ETCs provide investors with several benefits over investing directly in the cryptocurrencies they track. Traded on regulated markets, investors can buy and sell the ETCs in the same way they would when trading conventional shares, with the identical regulatory protections in place. The cryptocurrencies are 100 % physically backed.
