VanEck Introduces Exchange-traded Fund For Cryptocurrency Mining

“Miners are very important in the growth of digital currencies,” says investment platform, VanEck.

The company’s ETF for Mining went live on Wednesday. The fund will provide investors with great exposure to firms in the cryptocurrency mining sector.

The Exchange-traded Fund (ETF) will spend 80% of its overall capital in cryptocurrency miners’ securities that can earn or have the capacity to generate nothing less than 50% of income from mining operations or technologies associated with mining. The funding will monitor the MVIS Crypto Mining Index. Also, it will have over 0.5% total cost ratio.

Cryptocurrency Miners Help To Authenticate Transactions On The Blockchain

According to Ed Lopez, the product management leader at VanEck, “Blockchains bring accountability, efficiency, and reduced costs when compared to conventional centralized database systems and processes. However, it will be difficult to verify and audit blockchain transactions, and this without crypto miners is what makes their role very essential.”

The Exchange-traded Fund comes just one month just after asset mgt firm Valkyrie released its BTC Miners ETF known as WGMI, which focuses on crypto miners that predominantly use sustainable energy. From its debut on the 8th of February, the ETF has dropped by over 10%, primarily due to the drop recorded by other cryptocurrency miners and BTC’s price.

VanEck is launching the fund at a “persuasive time,” according to Lopez because the cryptocurrency mining business is still at the early phase of expansion. He anticipates the demand of investors to increase drastically for all sorts of virtual currencies. Miners as well as mining production companies, prospective mining factories, and a blockchain-operated bank are part of the fund’s top holdings.

VanEck Investment Company

VanEck has a track record of seeing past financial systems to find patterns poised to provide significant investment opportunities. It is among the first asset managers in the United States to provide investors with access to global markets. This created an atmosphere for the company’s commitment to identifying types of assets and trends, such as gold investment in 1968 and ETFs in 2006, which transformed the asset management sector.
