Prominent asset management firm Valkyrie has taken a proactive step in the crypto investment landscape by submitting an application to transform its existing Bitcoin investment fund into an innovative fund that will include investments in both Bitcoin and Ether.

Scheduled Conversion and Competitive Edge

The proposed conversion of Valkyrie’s Bitcoin investment fund to incorporate Ether investments is slated for October 3, 2023, according to Eric Balchunas, a Senior ETF analyst at Bloomberg.

At present, Valkyrie’s fund primarily focuses on Bitcoin and adopts an active management approach by allocating funds to Bitcoin futures contracts. Moreover, by introducing Ether into their new offering, Valkyrie aims to establish a competitive advantage in the market.

Notably, the company plans to launch their revamped fund two weeks ahead of similar offerings by other investment firms.

Aligning with Industry Trends

Valkyrie’s strategic conversion aligns with the direction of the crypto investment industry, as other players like ProShares and Bitwise are also seeking approval from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for funds that encompass both Bitcoin and Ether investments. The trend extends to a total of ten previous applications related to funds featuring Ether futures contracts.

Further, industry experts view the combined Bitcoin and Ether strategy ETF as a potential catalyst for significant investment opportunities for both individual and institutional investors.

Moreover, this approach will tap into the growth potential of both cryptocurrencies. It will envision a future where the value of Bitcoin and Ether continues to appreciate.
