Cryptocurrency交易平台Huobi推出基於加密交易所交易基金 (ETF), an investment option that will allow retail investors to gain exposure to a basket of assets instead of just one at a time.
The company said in an announcement on Friday that the investment instrument – called HB10 – is now open for subscriptions, though it only accepts purchases using cryptocurrencies instead of fiat currencies.
According to the firm, the new product will replicate the Huobi 10 index, which was recently launched to track 10 different assets on the Huobi Pro exchange in real time, based on their market capitalization and liquidity.
如從前那樣 報導 通過CoinDesk, the index uses weighted samples to reflect the overall market performance on Huobi Pro. By tracking that data, Huobi touts that HB10 will help to diversify risks for retail investors while giving them exposure to major cryptocurrency assets.
The company further added that since the 產品 will also be available for institutional investors, it could potentially “reduce the impact of institutional entry and exit” on single cryptocurrencies.
與此同時, a company representative told CoinDesk that the new offering will have similar restrictions as Huobi Pro. 例如, while it will still be available for investors from China, the new service notably excludes those from the U.S., given regulatory uncertainty over cryptocurrency-related ETFs in the country.
