Why BTCetc (BTCE)?

An easier way to invest in bitcoin

Investing in BTCetc is as simple as buying shares through your broker or bank. Unlike investing directly in bitcoin, there is no need to engage with the technical challenges of setting up a cryptocurrency wallet to store bitcoin. Your units of BTCE are safely held with your broker or bank.

Trade bitcoin on a regulated exchange

BTCetc´s primary listing is traded on 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. BTCetc is also available on SIX Swiss exchanges in multiple currencies and on German regional exchanges.

Safe Custody

The issuer stores the bitcoin with BitGo 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.

Physical Redemption

BTCetc is fully-fungible with bitcoin and can be redeemed for bitcoin or cash*. Investors can redeem their units of BTCetc with APs or directly with the Issuer. Please refer to the Redemption Information Document as well as the Put Option Exercise Form for further information on redemption.

Bitcoin Carbon Offset Initiative

We have taken our first step by buying carbon offsets, working with some of the most respected climate strategy experts groups in the world.
Our approach and methodology are available in the Carbon Emissions Report:
To calculate the offsets required, we carried out a calculation of the carbon footprint of the bitcoin mining process, for the CO2e* emissions associated with BTCE Bitcoin mining and transaction activities.
*Carbon dioxide equivalent” or “CO2e” is a term for describing different greenhouse gases in a common unit. For any quantity and type of greenhouse gas, CO2e signifies the amount of CO2 which would have the equivalent global warming impact.

Key Risks

  1. Investors' capital is at risk and investors may not get back the amount originally invested and should obtain independent advice before making a decision.
  2. Any decision to invest should be based on the information contained in the relevant prospectus.
  3. ETC securities are structured as debt securities, not as equity.
  4. 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.

At all times 100% backed by bitcoin because BTCetc cannot be created without the collateral being held in safe-custody.

APs provide liquidity in BTCetc on exchange where most investors will buy and sell BTCetc. Investors don’t need to worry about safely storing their investment in bitcoin via BTCetc as the units are securely held with their broker – just like stocks.

BTCetc can be sold anytime on exchange or redeemed for bitcoin or cash* via an AP or directly with the Issuer. Only APs the Issuer has appointed are allowed to subscribe to BTCetc with the Issuer, and only for bitcoin. This mechanism ensures that the provenance of all bitcoin has been verified.

For additional investor protection, the bitcoin in the custody account is pledged as security to the investors, and a reputable independent trustee enforces this pledge.
