It’s worth noting that the recent ETPs will join the list of products already trading on multiple exchanges, including Valour Uniswap (UNI), Valour Avalanche (AVAX), and Valour Terra (LUNA), coupled with ETPs for the two largest cryptocurrencies, Valour Bitcoin Zero and Valour Ethereum Zero.
ETPs are seen as a means to expose investors to the industry of the future. Reacting to the new development, Russell Starr, the CEO of DeFi Technologies, said:
“As we continue to expand our product offerings onto new exchanges, even more people will have access to participating in an industry that is rewriting the future of the financial services industry. Investors are interested in the opportunity to get into crypto as it establishes itself, and Valour’s ETPs enable them to do that on regulated exchanges they know and trust.”
What Are Exchange Traded Products (ETPs)
Exchange Traded Products are mainstream investment vehicles that have existed for relatively 30 years. It started gaining the vast attention of investors during the financial crisis of 2008, when demand for more transparency began to increase.
The most popular type of ETP is the exchange traded fund (ETF) and a good example of a crypto ETF is the Purpose Bitcoin ETF, which has recently attained a record high in the number of Bitcoin (BTC) it holds after a huge injection of capital.
