The crypto ETN offering on Xetra now comprises 40 products from nine providers. The ETNs relate to the cryptocurrencies Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Cardano, Ethereum, Litecoin, Polkadot, Solana, Stellar, Tezos and TRON as well as five baskets of cryptocurrencies. Investors can participate in the performance of cryptocurrencies through crypto ETNs without having to set up crypto wallets or use unregulated crypto trading venues.
All crypto ETNs on Xetra are centrally cleared by Eurex Clearing AG as Deutsche Börse Group’s central counterparty (CCP). Investors thus benefit from significantly reduced risks in the settlement of trades. With an average monthly order book turnover of around €1 billion, Deutsche Börse and Xetra are also the market leaders in the trading of crypto ETNs in Europe.
