About Bitcoin Capital

What is Bitcoin Capital AG?2021-04-13T11:57:53+02:00

Bitcoin Capital AG is a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) based in Zug, Switzerland. The purpose of the company is to issue ETPs listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange, on the Börse Stuttgart and expecting on other European exchanges.

What is an ETP?2020-11-23T09:04:22+01:00

Exchanged Traded Products are collateralised, non-interest paying debt securities designed to replicate the performance of the underlying assets. ETPs trade on exchanges similar to stocks meaning their prices can fluctuate intraday. ETPs are structured and operate very similarly to traditional Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). However, contrary to ETFs, ETPs are debt securities issued by a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV).

Most, if not all, crypto ETPs available on markets are passive products that track an index or a single underlying. An Actively managed ETP is an innovative product. The asset manager continuously risk manages it and discretionarily trades the underlying, implementing its investment strategy in an effort to generate alpha over the benchmark.
