Hashdex to begin trading its spot Bitcoin ETF with ticker ‘DEFI’ — TradingView News

Asset manager Hashdex is officially joining the spot Bitcoin BTCUSD exchange-traded fund (ETF) market in the United States after completing the conversion of its futures ETF to hold spot Bitcoin. 

In a March 26 announcement, Hashdex said it has renamed and converted its Hashdex Bitcoin Futures ETF to the Hashdex Bitcoin ETF with the ticker “DEFI.”

“DEFI’s renaming corresponds to DEFI’s completion of the conversion of its investment strategy to allow the Fund to provide spot Bitcoin holdings and its tracking of a new benchmark index effective March 27, 2024,” it said.

The newly converted fund will invest at least 95% of its assets into spot Bitcoin, while up to 5% of the remaining assets will go into CME-traded Bitcoin futures contracts and in cash and cash equivalents, according to the firm.

“Since our founding in 2018, Hashdex has strongly believed that bitcoin is a generational opportunity,” said Hashdex co-founder and CEO Marcelo Sampaio.

“We’re excited to invite all investors – whether it be those who already have full conviction in Bitcoin, those who are considering an allocation for the first time, or anyone in between – to join us in our long-term journey of making digital assets accessible,” added Samir Kerbage, Hashdex’s chief investment officer.
