This section covers cryptocurrency ETFs, ETNs, trusts, funds, and other such products. For example, this section includes GBTC.

NOTE: The Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC) is a trust that holds Bitcoin. Shares of the trust can be purchased on the stock market. The trust holds about 170,000 bitcoins. Each share represents about .092 bitcoins (so if you own 10 shares, you own contracts that represent just under 1 bitcoin). In other words, GBTC isn’t a cryptocurrency. Instead, it represents ownership of a cryptocurrency held in a trust by the Greyscale investments.
