Vault Equity’s ‘Bitcoin Revolution’ ETF goes live on NYSE today

The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) continues to list Bitcoin (BTC) -Linked Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), becoming the latest company to make such a product debut on the Vault Equity Exchange.

Vault Equity’s Crypto Industry Revolution and Tech ETF will begin trading on October 28 at the Electronic Securities Exchange NYSE Arca, the company’s CEO Ted Park told Quentelegraph. The ETF ticker symbol will be available for trading at market opening under BTCR.

BTCR will open at $ 21, approving a limited supply of 21 million bitcoins. According to the company, ETF is implementing a management approach informed by PlanB’s Bitcoin Stock-to-Flow (S2F) model, a key quantitative model that is willing to predict BTC prices.

“We consult with the famous stock-to-flow model as an input on how and when the shock of bitcoin mining supply can affect the price of bitcoin due to the determined half. Based on what we see, we can adjust our mining-related exposures accordingly, ”said Volt Equity.

Approved by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in early October, the product of Vault Equity is not a pure Bitcoin ETF because it is based on companies with significant exposure to Bitcoin.

The ETF tracks the so-called “Bitcoin Industry Revolution Company”, which includes Michael Seller’s Microstrategy, Tesla, Twitter, Square, Coinbase Crypto Exchange as well as Bitcoin mining companies such as Kenan, BitFarms and Riot Blockchain. Vault Equity will regularly review the holding and allocation of funds “when appropriate” based on research, data and models such as S2F.

“Bitcoin is not just a currency, it’s a revolution that miners, companies use it on their balance sheets and everyday HODLers who want to keep the first digital store of value that can’t be inflated by the government,” Park said.
