Mawson Infrastructure Group has listed an Australian crypto mining exchange-traded fund (ETF) that includes Galaxy Digital and Hut 8 mining, among other companies.
- The provider of diversified digital infrastructure services said Monday the ETF, which will be the first product offered by its Cosmos Asset Management unit, will be named Cosmos Global Digital Miners Access ETF and listed under the code “DIGA.CXA.”
- The ETF’s top three holdings will be Galaxy Digital with a 20% allocation within the fund, while Hut 8 and Marathon Digital will both have a 14% weighting, according to the Cosmos Asset Management website.
- The ETF comes amid a recent flurry of new cryptocurrency-related ETFs that have launched in the U.S. and in other countries.
- “The Cosmos Global Digital Miners Access ETF is designed to provide access to global leaders listed on national exchanges with a focus on cryptocurrency asset mining and infrastructure,” Mawson founder and CEO James Manning said in a statement.
