Both ETFs are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Purpose Investments ETF shares contain an underlying BTC (NAV) value of 0.00016505 BTC, so its current price is 10.63 Canadian dollars (CAD) or $ 8.39. Evolve’s ETF shares, meanwhile, are trading at CAD 24.03, $ 18.98 at the time of writing, which implies a NAV of 0.00037309 BTC.

The success of the first two ETFs in North America, a fact reported in this media, has raised expectations about the last request made to the SEC for a similar investment instrument in the United States, made at the beginning of January of this year. More recently, CriptoNoticias reviewed the introduction of a request from CBOE to that same commission to list the shares of that ETF, whose approval is still pending.
