This Week’s ETF Launches: The First Blockchain ETFs Have Arrived

Hey everyone!

As many of you know, I'm a regular contributor over at ETFdb.com. One of the features I write every week is the "New ETF Launches" column. Since the information in the column should be useful to ETF Focus readers, I'm going to regularly publish it here as well.

Enjoy!


The SEC has essentially shut down all bitcoin ETFs, but that doesn’t mean that the technology underlying much of the cryptocurrency world is off limits.

The first set of ETFs that focus on companies engaged in blockchain, the technology on which cryptocurrency transactions are built, launched this week amid some concern from the SEC. However, they have received great interest from investors.

Here are this week’s new fund launches:
