The fund is designed to track Schwab Asset Management’s new proprietary index, the Schwab Crypto Thematic Index.

According to the fund’s prospectus filed with the U.S. Комиссия по ценным бумагам и биржам (SEC) Friday, the Schwab Crypto Thematic ETF is “designed to deliver global exposure to companies that may benefit from the development or utilization of cryptocurrencies (включая биткойн) and other digital assets, and the business activities connected to blockchain and other distributed ledger technology.” Furthermore, “The fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest in the securities of relatively few issuers,” the company warned.

журналист Лаура Шин опубликовала статью, в которой утверждается, что, the SEC still has not approved a bitcoin spot ETF despite approving several bitcoin-futures ETFs. В июне, Grayscale Investments, the world’s largest digital asset manager, filed a lawsuit against the SEC after the securities regulator rejected its application to convert its flagship bitcoin trust, GBTC, into a spot bitcoin ETF.
