Chainlink ETN by VanEck is based on the performance of the MVIS® CryptoCompare Chainlink VWAP Close Index.
Source: VanEck, MVIS. The performance quoted represents past performance which is not a reliable indicator of future results. Future performance may be lower or higher than current performance. Investment returns will fluctuate so that investors' shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. An index’s performance is not illustrative of the ETN’s performance. Investors cannot invest directly in the Index. Indices are not securities in which investments can be made. This is not a recommendation to buy or sell any product.
The trading prices of many digital assets have experienced extreme volatility in recent periods and may well continue to do so. Digital assets were only introduced within the past decade and regulatory clarity remains elusive in many jurisdictions. Digital assets' value depends on such regulation remaining favorable, as well with the technological capabilities, the development of protocol networks, competition from other digital asset networks and from forks. Volatility can be strongly amplified by transactions from speculative investors, hedge funds and other large investors. You may experience losses if you need to sell your Shares at a time when the price of the underlying digital asset is lower than it was when you made your prior investment. Even if you are able to hold Shares for the long-term, your Shares may never generate a profit. This is one of the factors to consider before investing in a Chainlink ETN.
If the currency of the Product differs from the currency you invest in, your final return depends on the exchange rate between your investment currency and the currency of the Product. That is a further factor to take into account before investing in a Chainlink ETN.
Trading venues and systems used by market participants to trade LINK may be subject to hacking and could result in loss of LINK.
Investors in a Chainlink ETN can lose all invested capital. The Product does not include capital protection against market risk. At the end of the term the issuer may not be able to pay the final redemption amount. This is another factor to take into consideration when considering an investment in a Chainlink ETN.
