The euro-denominated Bitcoin ETN Futures contract is based on ETC Group’s flagship product, centrally cleared Bitcoin exchange-traded product (ETP), known as BTCetc Physical Bitcoin (BTCE). The futures contract allows investors to track the price development of Bitcoin in a regulated environment and will be physically delivered in BTCE, which is 100% backed by Bitcoin and can be instantly converted by any investor into the underlying BTC.

ETC Group CEO Bradley Duke noted that the latest listing marks another major milestone in providing institutions with financial products that enable exposure to crypto on regulated exchanges. “The selection of BTCE by Eurex, Europe’s largest derivatives exchange, further establishes ETC Group’sleadership in the crypto ETPs and is recognition of the quality of our products and their world-beating liquidity,” he noted.

The Bitcoin ETN Futures’ listing on Eurex comes more than a year after ETC Group listed its BTCE ETP product on Xetra, a major digital stock exchange operated by Deutsche Borse. The ETP is now listed on multiple European exchanges, including the SIX Swiss Exchange. In July, ETC Group announced that BTCE was going carbon neutral by offsetting the carbon footprint through hand-selected carbon credits to compensate for carbon emissions associated with BTCE Bitcoin mining.
