First Bitcoin and Ethereum trackers listed on Vienna stock exchange
Austria's Vienna Stock Exchange on Tuesday welcomed 21Shares, which issues products on cryptocurrencies. Products on Bitcoin and Ethereum -both cryptocurrencies - have hence been listed for the first time on the Austrian marketplace. Both ETPs had been launched during Spring 2019 and were hitherto listed on German and Swiss exchanges. "Crypto-currencies offer experienced investors a new opportunity to diversify their portfolio. With the listing, we widen the selection of asset classes on the Vienna Stock Exchange. Investors can profit from the stock exchange advantages in crypto trading: Monitored, regulated and transparent trading with real-time information and secure settlement via their regular brokers account," argued Thomas Rainer, head of business development at Vienna Stock Exchange.
