Ethereum first: the first Ethereum-based fund to operate on Nasdaq

CoinShares, headed by former JPMorgan Chase operator Daniel Masters, today announced that it has launched an Ether-traded note (ETN), the cryptocurrency of the blockchain Ethereum, available on the Nasdaq Stockholm market.

With this announcement, ETN joins CoinShares’ original ETN bitcoin offering, launched in 2015, to bring a well-used mechanism from traditional markets to the world of cryptoconversion and joins the rest of its related products:

Its initial product Bitcoin ETN, was considered a surprise. However, the company feels now that it is time to get a new product. Focusing on Ethereum makes a lot of sense. Having more traded notes linked to cryptography can only be good for the investment industry.

The product will only be available to European merchants for now. For regulatory reasons, the global deployment of such an investment vehicle is at present prevented.

Acquiring CoinShares’ ETN products may allow investors to maintain the exposure of the cryptocurrencies in a retirement account, which may lead, under certain circumstances, to favored tax treatment in certain jurisdictions.

TECHNICAL DATA OF THE ETNs:

As for what makes the product unique, it is that the fund differs from the actively traded options and is “100 percent passive” and, it will be tried, that they are close to 99 percent correlated since, the ETNs are based on a derived product, the price of notes and ether may not be the same at all times.
