Cathie Wood’s Ark Invest filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Monday to create a bitcoin exchange-traded fund.

Wood — a longtime bitcoin bull — has been buying up proxies for the digital asset in names such as Coinbase and Grayscale Bitcoin Trust. Now, the innovation investor is seeking to own the actual asset itself.

The ETF’s investment objective is to track the performance of bitcoin, according to the SEC filing. The fund would trade under the ticker symbol “ARKB,” if approved by the SEC. Ark Invest is working in partnership with 21Shares to launch the ETF.

Bitcoin has hovered around $34,000 for the past couple of weeks as it struggles to reclaim its May highs. Many in the trading community have kept a watchful eye to see if it would hold at $30,000 as it continued its decline. Some still say it could drop as low as $20,000 before rebounding.

However, the digital asset has nearly been cut in half since its all-time high of about $63,000 in April. China’s bitcoin crackdown, Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s decision to stop accepting bitcoin for its electric vehicles, and excessive risk taking by crypto traders have all contributed to recent price swings.

Ark Invest acknowledged the volatility associated with the digital asset in the “risk factors” section of the filing.

“The market value of bitcoin is not related to any specific company, government or asset. The valuation of bitcoin depends on future expectations for the value of the Bitcoin network, the number of bitcoin transactions, and the overall usage of bitcoin as an asset. This means that a significant amount of the value of bitcoin is speculative, which could lead to increased volatility. Investors could experience significant gains, losses and/or volatility in the Trust’s holdings, depending on the valuation of bitcoin,” the S1 filing stated.

The SEC last week again postponed a decision to approve the first bitcoin ETF. The latest action comes as SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has called for more regulation of cryptocurrency exchanges and greater investor protections.

So far, there have been eight other bitcoin ETFs filed with the SEC.

Coinbase, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, is a top 10 holding in Wood’s flagship fund Ark Innovation. Grayscale Bitcoin Trust is a top 10 holding in Ark Next Generation Internet ETF.

30 gedachten over “Cathie Wood’s ARK Invest files for bitcoin ETF”

  1. +.Stocks for the next 5 years: Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Netflix.
    Disney, Wells Fargo, for the recovery.
    My family and friends use things from these companies every day and more of it in the future so I know that these companies will continue to do

  2. Have you noticed that Wall Street Journal, Yahoo, CNBC, CNN and bloomberg hate tech (even though most of us have 401k plans that have big tech)

    and push crypto crap and meme/gambling stocks like AMC/gamestop/SPAC, and scaring investors by promoting inflation?

  4. My advice to anyone going into Crypto currency trading is to get yourself attached to a registered broker not just any trading broker out there, who will make good returns on your investment safeguarding it's integrity

  5. Nice, thanks for the insight. Just bought $4000 worth of ETH and $16000 BTC. With the recent dump in BTC I was told its the right time to buy and get ready for a skyrocket. BTC and ETH to the moon🚀🚀🚀

  6. I admire the efforts u put in your videos mate, digital currencies continue to reshape the world globally, it's hard for anyone going against them these days, though from a trader's perspective I feel we really need more experts in the field updating newbies on how the community works. cryptocurrencies are gradually moving towards something big and the price surge over the past few months is just the beginning of greater things to come. lots of persons are skeptical about when to buy in the market and whether it isn't too late to buy an asset when you're hodling it could be but when trading it's never too late to buy. a trader with the right strategy and indicators earns big regardless of the market price (bulls or bears). I trade using Mr. John Cochrane's trading signals. Mr. John Cochrane with the guide and signal service I've made over 9.54 BTC worth of crypto assets over some months. He is an experienced trader. His method is first-class and profitable. You can easily get to him Ͳelegram @ CochraneCrypto.

  7. After studying the trajectory of great assets like real estate, dividend paying stocks of blue chip companies, gold, etc ,my conclusion is that most great assets never come down to the price that you want them to so you can buy. just buy the ones you can afford today.

  8. ₿ TC price is prone to volatile swings, making it historically popular for traders to speculate on . According to bitcoin halving cycles, there should be at least other 4 months in this bull run, so, if the PI indicator (and Bitcoin) might repeat a similar bull run to 2013. That would mean a local top relatively close in time and then another top to end the bull run towards mid year. lnvestors and traders find it difficult to decide how best to utilise the current market, hodling is profitable but tradlng is far more profitable. I was able to grasp the knowledge of tradlng crypt0 assets early enough, I didn’t think it was possible to make constant win from tradlng till I came across Paul Charlton ’s program for lnvestors/newbies who lack understanding on how tradlng B TC works, to help them stack up more Bit¢σ!и, since late last year till date I have made over 19₿TC from 2.6₿TC with Paul’s help. You can easily get to him ͲҽӀҽցɾąʍ @Paulcharlton or mail Paulcharlton07@ gmail com

  9. Despite its volatility, Polk:adot did not breach its 12-day long resistance and support levels. While the altcoin has been testing the $17 and $14 levels, it did not manage to break past either of them. The Simple Moving Averages lines were in different positions. While the 50 SMA line was in support earlier, it could be seen switching to resistance. The 100 SMA line was already bearish. The Squeeze Momentum Indicator highlighted bullish pressure receding on the 4-hour chart due to the appearance of positive bars. The indicator was in an active squeeze . Capital outflows were starting to become dominant, according to the Chaikin Money Flow, with the indicator likely to head below zero soon. D'O'T can fall even more, but it should consolidate within the aforementioned levels. I was able to grasp the knowledge of tradlng crypt0 assets early enough, but i was still limited due to my lack of technical understanding of how to analyse the digital market, all that changed when i encountered Bryant Miller services, although i have been into numerous services but Mr Bryant Miller stands out with experience and expertise playing in his favour. I must confess it wasn't an easy task to learning the routes on tradlng but with the assistance of Bryant, it was more easier to understand. Bryant is also an expert trader and f!nance journalist and you can find his courses on tradlng on the internet for free and they come in handy as an !nvestor and he can be reached on gmαil ( bryantmillertrade@gmailcom) OR Եҽlҽցɾαต (@bryantmillertrade ) for his assistance on strictly crypt0 related concerns.

  10. venturing into the trading world without the help of a proffesionl trader and expecting profit is like turing water into wine,

    you would need a miracle, thats why i trade with Mrs sonia dickson, her skills set exceptional.
