Exchange-traded crypto securities on the rise
More and more traditional investors, and especially institutional investors, want to diversify into crypto assets without getting involved in crypto exchanges or OTC themselves. They invest in exchange-traded securities that have a direct crypto connection. In the U.S., the market leader is Grayscale Investments with several crypto-related products, and in Europe, Germany's ETC Group is one of the market leaders. Trading in crypto-related products exploded in early 2021.
