ETC - Exchange Traded Crypto

Innovative Cryptocurrency ETPs for modern Portfolios

Seamless access on XETRA and other major Stock Exchanges via your conventional Broker or Bank

Our ETPs are securities that trade like equities on regulated exchanges. By listing on regulated markets, all products have been designed with these key principles in mind:

  • Transparency structure and pricing
  • Safety in terms of custody and investor protection
  • Integrity in that all market participants are fully regulated institutions
The value of your investment may go down as well as up and past performance is no indication of future performance. Your capital is at risk.

About BTCetc  (BTCE)

BTCetc  is the world’s first centrally-cleared Bitcoin ETP, and is listed on Germany's largest stock exchange, Deutsche Börse XETRA. The BTCetc  Prospectus was approved by the German Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin).


BTCetc  (Bloomberg Ticker: BTCE:GR) enables investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin, without the need for the investor to understand Blockchain technology and wallets.

Because BTCetc  is a security, it can be used in the same way that stocks and bonds are used within your brokerage account - not only as collateral, but also for yield enhancement via transactions such as stock loan and repo.


The Issuer keeps Bitcoin backing the product at a reputable, safe, regulated and insured depositary, namely BitGo Trust Company, Inc. It is virtually impossible to store Bitcoin in any safer way than how it is done by BitGo.
