Cryptocurrency ETF Overview

Cryptocurrencies are types of digital currencies, alternative currencies and virtual currencies designed to work as a medium of exchange. A cryptocurrency ETF would allow investors to access the cryptomarket with their brokerage accounts. In January 2018, the Securities Exchange Commission turned down plans to set up exchange-traded funds for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, stating there were too many unanswered questions to allow for cryptocurrency ETFs without creating excessive risk for investors.
