Blockchain ETF

Our ETF provides investors exposure to companies at the forefront of the blockchain economy.

Why Invest in a Blockchain ETF?

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.

Why Invest in VanEck ETFs?

VanEck is different from other asset managers in three crucial ways:

  • Since we were founded in 1955 we have constantly been at the forefront of innovation, giving you access to new opportunities like gold funds, emerging market funds and ETFs.
  • We are privately-held, allowing us to focus on our clients’ long-term interests.
  • Our ETFs are transparent: they acquire the underlying securities (no synthetic replication). Securities are not lent out.1
1This only holds for VanEck’s European ETFs.
