Bradley Duke, Founder and co-CEO of ETC Group said:
While our Bitcoin based ETC continues to lead the global market, being the most traded crypto ETP, investors are increasingly interested in adding some of the newer, innovative cryptocurrencies to their portfolios - especially those amassing large market cap. The addition of these new ETCs offers these investors high quality, physically backed digital assets, underpinned by our partnerships with world-class liquidity providers to deliver high liquidity and tight trading spreads.
Hector McNeil co-Founder and co-CEO at HANetf:
We are delighted to partner with ETC Group again to offer new products to the existing suite of exchange traded cryptocurrencies. ETC Group has established itself as a market leader in offering investment products focused on crypto assets. Interest in exchange traded cryptocurrencies has been booming as they provide investors with a safe and liquid way to gain exposure to digital assets.
Crypto ETCs provide investors with significant benefits over direct investment in digital assets, including:
1/ Easy way to invest
Investors can buy and sell like any stock or ETF through their regular broker or bank. No need to engage with the technical challenges of setting up a cryptocurrency wallet, products have a ticker and ISIN and can be added to an investor’s conventional stock portfolio.
2/ Institutional-grade asset custody
The underlying digital asset is kept in cold-storage at a regulated custodian, and all assets are secured by an independent trustee, thus eliminating issuer default risk, a common feature for physical ETC structures.
3/ 100%% physically backed redemption
Investors are legally entitled to the underlying digital asset, and can redeem the ETC for the сryptocurrency, alternatively to selling on exchange, hence providing pure exposure to the underlying.
