Bitwise CIO Matt Hougan and Crypto Research Analyst Juan Leon discuss the launch of Bitcoin-linked ETF, BITC and weigh in on long-term investment opportunities and risks.
The Bitwise Bitcoin Strategy Optimum Roll ETF (ticker: BITC), launched on March 21st, delivers a new kind of Bitcoin ETF. While other Bitcoin Spot ETFs leverage a front-month strategy, which traditionally benefits short term traders, BITC leverages an optimized roll strategy seeks to cater to the traditional buy and hold investor.
“Historically, optimum roll strategies in other asset classes, such as oil and natural gas futures, have outperformed strategies focused on front-month or near-month contracts over time,” said Bitwise CIO Matt Hougan. “We believe this same strategy can apply to the bitcoin futures market as it continues to deepen and evolve. With the Bitwise Bitcoin Strategy Optimum Roll ETF, we’re excited to cater to long-term-oriented investors looking for regulated vehicles to gain directional bitcoin exposure.” view the full press release here.
