Why Invest in Blockchain Companies?

Blockchain is driving the digital transformation of the global economy. As a digital decentralized ledger of transactions that is distributed across many computers, blockchain is changing the way people think about finance, from currencies to banking.

VanEck Vectors Digital Assets Equity UCITS ETF (ISIN: IE00BMDKNW35) offers investors:

  • Exposure to the long-term growth potential of the blockchain economy.
  • Diversified access to blockchain companies, including digital asset exchanges, miners and other infrastructure companies behind digital currencies and smarter forms of finance.
  • Pure-play exposure to companies that have the potential of getting 50% of revenue from digital assets.

Accelerating Growth in the Blockchain Economy

The valuations of publicly listed digital asset companies have grown significantly in recent years, driven by the rising number of users and revenues. This trend is projected to continue, as digital assets usage and implementation – including cryptocurrency and decentralized applications – is expected to increase.

Main Risk Factors

Despite all the hype, digital assets are a highly risky investment. Below are key risk factors that need to be considered before making an investment (please note that this list is not inclusive and a complete list of risk factors can be found in the base prospectus of the programme).


The issuer intends to invest in a single digital asset. Because the class of digital asset investments is growing at a rapid pace, all risks relating to the underlying technology may not be known. As new digital assets develop and attract interest from the development community and investors, they may also become greater targets for exploitation.
