区块链ETF首次登陆纳斯达克、纽交所

Reality Shares Advisors以及Amplify Trust ETF今日分别在纳斯达克以及纽约证券交易所Arca平台推出了首支基于区块链的交易所交易基金(ETF)。

据悉,这两支基金在美国东部时间9:30 分别上市,其中Reality Shares在纳斯达克的NextGen Economy ETF开盘价为24.20美元,而Amplify的转型数据共享ETF(BLOK)的开盘价则接近20美元。

根据官方透露,两支ETF基金将专注于投资区块链公司。在2017年11月,两家公司首次提交招股说明书时指出,投资区块链创业公司可能是有风险的,因为当前对于这一技术的监管还是很少的,且公司未必能够获利。

不过,招股说明书中还提到,基金只会投资那些市值超过2亿美元的公司,并且要求公司在6个月的交易日中,每天的交易量至少达到100万美元。

Reality Shares的分析师Kian Salehizadeh表示,该公司已与纳斯达克合作开发了一个指数,用于追踪该基金将投资的区块链创业公司。其中,纳斯达克的区块链研究团队为该指数贡献了一部分力量,而Reality Shares则提供了进一步的算法支持。

Salehizadeh继续表示:

“我们想做一支与区块链技术相关的ETF,它不是另一支比特币基金,而是利用区块链底层生态的一支基金。所以,我们开发了一种内部方法,它测量了七个数量因素,并将这些因素运行在一个公开交易的数据宇宙当中。”

此外,他还告诉记者,这家公司的ETF基金最初包含了区块链这一单词,但遭到了美国证券交易委员会(SEC)的否决。

目前,SEC尚未正式批准这一ETF,但根据现行法律,如果SEC没有正式反对,意味着这些ETF会自动被批准。目前,SEC有75天的时间,可对这一ETF文件提出异议或反对。如果没有反对,基金就可正式上市。

Reality Shares Advisors and Amplify Trust ETF launched the first blockchain-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on Nasdaq and the New York Stock Exchange Arca today.

Both funds went live on their respective exchanges at 9:30 a.m. EST. Reality Shares' Nasdaq NextGen Economy ETF (BLCN) opened at $24.20, while Amplify's Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK) started closer to $20.

Both ETFs will exclusively invest in blockchain-based companies, according to a previous CoinDesk article. When the prospectuses were first filed in November 2017, the companies noted that investing in blockchain startups could be risky, as there are few regulations on the technology and companies may not necessarily turn a profit.

However, the prospectuses also noted that the funds would only invest in companies with a market capitalization of greater than $200 million and which had a six-month daily trading average of at least $1 million.

Reality Shares has developed an index with Nasdaq to track blockchain startups which the ETF will utilize, said Kian Salehizadeh, an analyst with Reality Shares. Nasdaq's blockchain research team forms part of the index's contributors. The index is further supported by an algorithm developed by Reality Shares.

Salehizadeh continued:

"We wanted to do a blockchain technology-related ETF, so not another bitcoin fund but something that takes advantage of the underlying ecosystem. So we developed a methodology in-house which measures seven quantitative factors and we run those factors on a universe of publicly traded [data]."

He further told CoinDesk that the company's ETF originally contained the word "blockchain" in its name, but the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had his company remove the term.

While the SEC has not formally issued an approval of the ETFs, the lack of a formal disapproval means the ETFs were automatically approved under current law, Salehizadeh explained. At present, the SEC has 75 days to issue a disapproval or objection to an ETF filing. If no such disapproval or objection is stated, the funds can be listed.

Companies have previously filed for blockchain-based ETFs, but none had made it as far as listing prior to Reality Shares and Amplify Trust. Most recently, Horizons ETFs Management filed for a blockchain ETF in November.
