First Bitcoin ETF Ready to Go Live in Europe

The anticipated public listing of Europe’s first bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) is scheduled to take place this month, following a one-year delay from its originally intended launch date.

Bitcoin ETFs have been creating a stir in the United States ever since the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) granted approval for the first ETF in 2021. However, in Europe, the journey for these digital asset ETFs has been less fortunate.

That is, until now, as the first bitcoin ETF prepares to commence trading, marking a two-year gap since the first BTC ETF began trading in the United States.

Initially, Jacobi Asset Management had announced plans for its bitcoin ETF to be listed on Euronext Amsterdam in July 2022.

However, the company has now stated that the fund is “on track” for launch this month, after reconsidering its decision last year when unfavorable circumstances arose, such as the Terra Luna crash in May 2022 and the collapse of FTX in November.

According to the asset manager, there has been a notable change in demand since last summer.

As reported by the Financial Times early on Thursday, the company is prepared to proceed with its bitcoin ETF and plans to commence trading this month. This development follows the approval received in Guernsey to initiate trading activities.

Amid the commotion of significant demand from prominent fund managers for the approval of a spot bitcoin ETF in the United States, the introduction of Europe’s first bitcoin ETF is noteworthy.

Industry leaders such as BlackRock, Fidelity, and WisdomTree, among others, have submitted filings for spot bitcoin ETFs. Despite the SEC deeming their initial filings insufficient, these fund managers have shown resilience by doubling down and reapplying with revised applications.
