This product will be listed on Germany’s largest digital market Xetra. It is the fourth ETP launched by CoinShares in 2022. After trading the CoinShares Physical Staked Tezos and the CoinShares Physical Staked Polkadot ETPs in January, the firm launched the CoinShares Physical Staked Cardano in March.
Similar to previous staked ETPs launched, the CoinShares Physical Staked Solana now has a unique staking system that allows investors to share the staking rewards with issuers by lowering the management fee and increasing the ETP’s coin entitlement each day.
CoinShares stated in an announcement that staked coins are not allowed to leave the safe custodian, where they are kept. The ETPs also remain 100% physically-backed at all time.
Sam Bankman-Fried, CEO of FTX, noted that the ETP launch comes after the launch FTC Access, a tool that combines the expertise from FTX US and FTX US, to give global institutional clients access to digital assets products.
“FTX Access’s goal is to provide institutional-grade products and services to the market in a cost-effective way. CoinShares has been providing European investors with innovative, regulated crypto-asset investments vehicles for over a decade.
