- The ETP will begin trading under the ticker “XBTI” on Wednesday with a total expense ratio of 0.95%.
- The product is structured as a traditional ETP and aims to remove the technical complications of investing in and holding bitcoin for investors, the Frankfurt-based firm said.

- Iconic Funds said it is also exploring listings for XBTI outside Germany.
