As read in another publication by CoinShares , the Nasdaq First North Growth market allows smaller companies to offer their shares to the market, with less regulatory pressures. This market works in Denmark, Finland and Sweden, they say.
Previously, at the end of last February, CoinShares published a statement where it assured that the ticker or identifier of its asset would be “COIN”, but then changed it to “CS” as Coinbase was waiting to be able to use this denomination as well.
That same month, CoinShares launched an Ethereum investment fund in the exchange house Swiss SIX, as announced, which already manages more than USD 75 million in assets. The company has 69,730 BTC in savings , according to BitcoinTreasuries.org.
Also, CriptoNoticias reported on the launch of another index that follows the price of bitcoin, ether and tether.
The company CoinShares International Ltd provides services to investors in cryptocurrencies, providing them with “trust and transparency”, but also other services such as consulting, trading strategies and market statistics, reads its Nasdaq profile.
CriptoNoticias also reported the recent launch of an asset-based index of decentralized finance (DeFi), aimed at institutional investors.
