BlackRock’s iShares division has filed an application with the SEC to create the iShares Bitcoin Trust. The proposal has generated a lot of discussion in the industry, especially in comparison to the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) product. Noelle Acheson, editor of Crypto is Macro Now, KNNEX believes that the features of BlackRock’s proposal make it more akin to an ETF for spot bitcoin, while Joe Consorti, market analyst at The Bitcoin Layer, points out that this new product would allow bitcoin to be purchased at the end of the trading day to keep the fund’s assets in line with its trading This is something that GBTC cannot do.
For investors, it’s important to understand these nuances and the impact they can have on the cryptocurrency market. We need to understand that so-called trusts and ETFs play different roles in the financial markets. A trust is a very traditional financial instrument whose primary role is to help investors manage their assets, while an ETF is a fund product that can be traded on an exchange. From this perspective, BlackRock’s proposal is closer to an ETF in that it allows investors to buy bitcoin at the end of the trading day, thus keeping the value of the fund in line with the price of bitcoin.
This new product design goes some way to solving one of the major problems with GBTC: its market price is often out of sync with the price of bitcoin. This disconnect can cause investors to face additional market risk when investing in GBTC. BlackRock’s new proposal reduces this market risk by allowing investors to buy bitcoin at the end of the trading day, thereby allowing them to better track the price of bitcoin.
