Since Tuesday, a hybrid product of gold and bitcoin issued by 21Shares in cooperation with the asset management company ByteTree is tradable on Xetra and via Börse Frankfurt.
For the first time, the 21Shares Bytetree BOLD ETP offers investors the opportunity to invest simultaneously in the performance of gold and bitcoin. The focus is currently on gold with 85 per cent; the remaining 15 per cent is covered by bitcoin. The composition of the hybrid product consisting of the precious metal gold and the cryptocurrency bitcoin is adjusted every month depending on the relative volatility of the two asset classes. If one of the two assets is less volatile than the other, investors receive greater exposure to that asset.
The product is physically collateralised by the cryptocurrency Bitcoin and gold and is centrally cleared via Eurex Clearing.
