ETC Group’s BTCetc -ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (ticker: BTCE) ‘BTCE’ has established its position as the market-leading Bitcoin exchange traded product (ETP) in Europe as it continues to attract strong interest from investors.
Inflows in the first three months of the year hit $459.66 million – around 41% of total inflows into eight Bitcoin ETPs during the period – while daily turnover at $51.158 million was nearly double its nearest rival. Part of this success is due to BTCE trading at a lower premium or discount to the price of Bitcoin than rivals in Europe and North America. This is largely achieved by the deep pool of world class liquidity providers and Authorised Participants active in the BTCE ETP.
The success of BTCE, which was the first cryptocurrency product to launch on XETRA last June, is being followed by ETC Group’s Physical Ethereum ETC (Ticker: ZETH) ‘ZETH’ which tracks the price of Ethereum, and like BTCE trades at a lower premium and discount than similar ETPs . ZETH was also the first Ethereum ETP to be listed on the Deutsche Boerse.
ZETH, which launched on March 8th 2021, has reached $40 million AUM and is already established as the most liquid Ethereum ETP products on Xetra with daily turnover of $916,72 . ETC Group followed these recent successful launches with the first Litecoin ETP listed on Xetra on 14th April 2021. This growing range clearly shows the intent of ETC Group to be the leading crypto ETP provider in Germany and Europe.
BTCE is playing a major role in driving rapid growth in assets under management (AUM) at HANetf, Europe’s first full services ‘white label’ ETF issuer, which have now exceeded $2.5 billion AUM compared to $1.12 billion at the start of 2021 .
All three crypto ETPs are distributed on HANetf’s white label ETP platform and provide investors with several benefits over investing directly in the cryptocurrencies they track. Traded on regulated markets, investors can buy and sell the ETPs in the same way they would when trading conventional shares, with the identical regulatory protections in place. HANetf recently surpassed $2.5billion in assets under management with the success of its thematic ETF range and ETPs.
Bradley Duke, CEO of ETC Group said: “Our physically backed Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin ETPs, BTCE, ZETH & ELTC, are designed to provide investors with a safer and more transparent way to gain exposure to cryptocurrencies and are delivering phenomenal growth as demand surges. They track the price of the underlying asset closely and provide institutional investors with liquid and central counterparty cleared products. The growth of AUM, liquidity and efficient tracking of the underlying crypto markets is resonating strongly with European investors.”
Hector McNeil, co-Founder and co-CEO at HANetf, said “BTCetc -ETC Group Physical Bitcoin (ticker: BTCE)has been a huge success since launch in June last year as it enables investors to benefit from Bitcoin performance while avoiding concerns about the technical challenges of buying and storing cryptocurrencies. The performance of ETC Group’s Physical Ethereum ETC (Ticker: ZETH)is more evidence that ETC Group is an acknowledged market leader in designing investment solutions as demonstrated by the performance of its products. I have watched the crypto markets transition to being used en masse by institutional investors real time since we helped launch BTCE with ETC Group.”
