Fidelity Seeks SEC’s Approval Launch a Bitcoin ETF
FD Funds Management, a subsidiary of Fidelity, has revealed that it plans to provide financial backing for a bitcoin ETF called the Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust, CNBC reported. On Wednesday, the company filed a Form S-1, a preliminary registration statement for the fund, with the SEC.
The filing explains that the Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust “is an exchange-traded fund that issues common shares” that will trade on a stock exchange, which has yet to be named, adding:
The Trust’s investment objective is to seek to track the performance of bitcoin, as measured by the performance of the Fidelity Bitcoin Index PR … adjusted for the Trust’s expenses and other liabilities.
The sponsor of the ETF is FD Funds Management while Delaware Trust Company is the trustee. Fidelity Digital Asset Services LLC (FDAS) is the Trust’s custodian and will hold all of the Trust’s BTC on its behalf, the filing describes. The Fidelity Bitcoin Index PR is designed to reflect the performance of bitcoin in U.S. dollars.
