Frank Spiteri, CoinShares’ Chief Revenue Officer, commented on the news, “The execution of our product development strategy continues apace, and we are delighted to work with FTX again on the launch of another institutional-grade physically-backed ETP. So far in 2022, our Physical ETPs have grown to reach US$675M in assets under management which we see as a validation of both cryptocurrency as an asset class and our unique product structure. We look forward to working with FTX on future initiatives and launching more ETPs in the weeks and months ahead.”
