Buy and sell like any stock or ETF through your regular broker or bank. No new account needed, just enter the ticker or ISIN on trading platform.

Institutional-grade asset custody

The Bitcoin is kept in cold-storage at a regulated custodian, and all assets are secured by an independent trustee, thus eliminating issuer default risk.

100% backed & physical redemption

You are legally entitled to the underlying bitcoin, and you can redeem the ETC for the сryptocurrency, alternatively to selling on exchange.

Regulated and listed on major exchanges

Issued in Germany under German regulatory oversight, the ETC’s primary listing is on XETRA, the largest ETF exchange in Europe.

Key risks

  1. Investor's 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.
