Ark Katie Wood allows herself to buy Canadian bitcoin ETFs
Last week, the company applied for $5,7 млрд ARK Next Generation Internet ETF (ticker ARKW), by changing the fund's prospectus, to include a mention of the opportunity to invest in cryptocurrencies through the & quot; exchange-traded funds, registered in Canada ''.
This step was taken after, as it turned out last week, that the blockchain-focused Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK) with capital in $1,3 billion owns a small share in three Canadian bitcoin ETFs.
Investors and issuers in the US ETF market are still waiting, when will regulators approve exchange-traded products for investing in cryptocurrencies?. While Canada and Europe took the lead, the Securities and Exchange Commission has accumulated a huge number of applications. Ark is among those, who is in line, by merging with the Swiss company 21Shares AG and applying for a fund in the USA.
ARKW already boasts some bitcoin share – about 5,5% fund invested in Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC), according to the data, compiled by Bloomberg. This fund with capital in $30 billion is, perhaps, one of the easiest ways for US investors to access cryptocurrencies through a fund, but its structure makes it ineffective, and its value is often at odds with the value of bitcoin.
