The fund, which tracks bitcoin’s price, provides institutional investors access to bitcoin through the traditional fund structure. The fund is eyeing 100 million US Dollars assets under management the first year. The company plans to launch one more fund in 2020 as it sees strong demand for active and passive crypto instruments.
BTCUSD capitalization has now reached $132.15 billion, while the top 100 cryptocurrencies have surpassed $208 billion. Ethereum is 1% higher at $182, Litecoin is 0.68% higher at $42.57 while Ripple is 1.18% higher at 0.1913.
