Bitcoin is often called ‘digital gold’ because, like the metal, it is a potential store of value. Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency. A decentralised currency independent of governments and central banks. It was designed as a peer-to-peer electronic medium of exchange and since its creation in 2009 has undergone rapid growth and change. It has become a significant currency both on- and offline and currently has a market capitalisation in excess of US$1.15 trillion.
As VanEck’s mantra is, ‘Access the opportunities’, for many years, investors have leaned on VanEck in their pursuit of a bitcoin ETF. Like these investors, we too understood and consider the ETF vehicle is the optimal delivery mechanism for an asset class like bitcoin.
With our global reach, VanEck is able to leverage expertise and infrastructure in offering Australian investors a best-in-class cryptocurrency solution and we are excited by ASIC’s recent report to help facilitate crypto-asset ETPs in Australia. ASIC’s move will allow Australia to become a leading jurisdiction globally.
It is only a matter of time before investors will finally be able to access bitcoin through an ETF and consolidate their administration and reporting just like shares and other ETFs.
Investors who are interested in accessing this opportunity and getting updates about cryptocurrency and other investment opportunities should register their interest below.
