Directional Exposure to the Larger Crypto Market

BTOP offers directional exposure to two assets that have historically made up 60-80% of the global crypto market: Bitcoin, the original and most valuable crypto asset (by market cap); and Ethereum, the “smart-contract” platform powering NFTs, stablecoins, DeFi, and other applications.

Equal Weighting for a Balanced Approach

Both Bitcoin and Ethereum have strong track records, unique investment characteristics, and significant growth potential—not to mention uncertain futures. The fund’s equal-weighting strategy lets investors avoid having to pick a winner by seeking balanced exposure to both themes.

Professionally Managed Exposure From a Crypto Specialist

For more than six years, Bitwise has helped leading investors understand and access crypto’s opportunities while managing its risks. We manage your investment using systems built for institutions, from custody and trading to regulation and compliance.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the original cost. Returns for periods of one year or less are not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance, please call 1-866-880-7228.
 
Performance of one year or less is not annualized. NAV performance is calculated based on the official closing values as of 4:00 p.m. ET. Market Price performance reflects the midpoint of the bid-ask spread as of 4:00 p.m. ET, and does not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Fund returns are calculated net of expenses. Shares are subject to a 0.85% Expense Ratio that includes the management fee, custody charges for holding the fund’s assets charged by the custodian, and customary fees and expenses of the fund administrator and auditor.
