Coinbase推出加密货币指数基金

本周,数字货币巨头Coinbase正式宣布宣布推出一款被动管理的加密货币指数基金,具体面世时间应该就在几个月之内。

该基金的最低购入额为10000美元,年度管理费用为2%,不收取任何基金业绩表现费。相比于大多数传统投资基金来说,这种收费结构还是非常少见的,但这似乎已经成为了加密货币被动投资工具的一种常态。

指数基金是Coinbase新资产管理部门的第一个投资工具。它将包括所有在GDAX进行交易的数字货币,按市值加权。也就是说,产品推出时各类加密货币的构成分别是:62%的比特币、27%的以太币、7%的比特币现金和4%的莱特币。一旦有新资产添加到GDAX,或者每年一次为应对供应变化(因为不同货币具有不同的通胀目标)时,基金内部结构都会进行重组。

据悉,Coinbase的确计划在未来提供期货投资产品,而不仅局限于GDAX上的产品类型。但就目前来看, 本次推出的被动指数基金才是通过足够流动性来获得初始资产的最佳方式。

基金投资同时接受美元或其他货币数字,只要满足10000美元最低要求即可。不过,投资者必须是身居美国的授信投资者。

投资者每月可进行一次投资,而资金赎回则是每季度一次,没有锁定期限。

所有资金都将由Coinbase在冷库中持有,考虑到他们管理这种高价值资产的经验,这肯定是一个加分。事实上,Coinbase的资管安全性一直备受热捧,此前他们还推出过一款名叫Coinbase Custody的产品,为其他投资基金提供冷库和托管服务。

当然,Coinbase并不是第一个开发被动加密基金的公司。类似的产品还包括Bitwise投资的HOLD 10指数,也有不少企业选择采用类似Iconomi这样的平台方法,让投资者创建自己的定制加权的密码资产篮子。但主要区别在于,Coinbase在这个领域已经拥有了一定的“名望”,许多该基金潜在投资者都已经至少使用过Coinbase的一种产品。

 

The digital currency giant just announced they’re expanding in yet another direction by launching a passively managed cryptocurrency index fund.

The fund will have a $10,000 minimum and charge a 2 percent annual management fee with no performance fee, which is rare for most traditional investment funds, but luckily is becoming the norm for crypto-specific passive investment vehicles.

The Index Fund is the first investment vehicle from Coinbase’s new asset management division. It will include all digital currencies that trade on GDAX, weighted by market cap. This means at launch it will be comprised of 62 percent Bitcoin, 27 percent Ethereum, 7 percent Bitcoin Cash and 4 percent Litecoin. This will rebalance whenever a new asset is added to GDAX as well as once a year to account for supply changes (as different currencies have different inflation targets).

That being said, Coinbase does plan to offer future investment vehicles that aren’t limited to what is listed on GDAX — but for now it’s the best way to insure that there is sufficient liquidity to acquire the initial assets.

Investments can be made in USD or any of the included digital currencies, as long as an investor can meet the $10,000 minimum investment. For this fund investors will also have to be accredited and U.S-based, although Coinbase hopes to remove those restrictions for future funds. New investment can be made once a month, with redemptions happening on a quarterly basis with no lockup period.

All funds will be held by Coinbase in cold storage, which is certainly a plus considering their experience managing such high-value assets. In fact, their security is so respected that they have another product called Coinbase Custody, which offers cold storage and custody services for other investment funds.

Of course, Coinbase isn’t the first to develop a passive crypto fund. Some are creating similar SEC-sanctioned funds like Bitwise investments’ HOLD 10 index, and others are taking a platform approach like Iconomi’s service that lets investors create their own custom-weighted crypto asset basket. But the major differentiator here is that Coinbase is already such an established name in the field with so many existing investors already using at least one of Coinbase’s services.

The fund will launch in a few months, and accredited investors can sign up now.
