BTCETC, under its exchange ticker symbol BTCE, is the world’s first centrally cleared, fully fungible Bitcoin exchange traded product to list on a major European exchange. This enables investors to buy, hold and sell Bitcoin in the same way as a normal share.

Investors benefit from the investor protection mechanisms offered by secure trading on a major, regulated exchange, supported by an institutional liquidity ecosystem.

BTCE also helps avoid the normal issues associated with investing in Bitcoin namely: crypto wallets, unregulated exchanges and settlement risk.

It is listed on the Deutsche Boerse Xetra exchange and is domiciled in Germany.

For every unit of BTCE issued, physical Bitcoin is held in insured, institutional grade specialist custody with BitGo, a regulated trust and market leader in cold storage technology.

BTCE targets investors who are interested in gaining exposure to Bitcoin but have had concerns about complexity, security or are limited by local regulatory or mandate restrictions.
