just like an ETF

100% physically backed, this ETC gives you seamless and pure exposure to the performance of ETHW, the forked cryptocurrency of the Ethereum network. ETHetc - ETC Group Physical Ethereum (ZETH) automatically switched to ETH PoS in line with the merge.

Simultaneously, holders of ZETH from before the merge additionally received this newly issued product which tracks the post fork ETH PoW token, on top of their existing holdings of ZETH on a 1:1 basis, in order to benefit from the fork event.

This approach was put in place in line with our commitment to transparency and maintaining the highest standards for investors. Details are described in the official bondholder notice available at ZETH Pre-Split Notice to Bondholders


About this Exchange Traded Product

Why we launched an EthereumPOW ETC/ETP

We have not and are not endorsing the fork in anyway, but wanted to treat investors in our products with fairness and transparency as they should be entitled to the proceeds of a fork, and we have committed to honouring this promise. At time of launch, we had no idea and expectation as to whether this fork would be successful or not but acted purely to honour our commitments, as per our prospectus, to holders of our physical Ethereum product.
