21Shares brings first crypto-currency products on Bitcoin and Ethereum to the official market

(Vienna) The Vienna Stock Exchange welcomes 21Shares, a new issuer of products on crypto currencies. Starting today, 1 September 2020, products on Bitcoin and Ethereum will be listed for the first time on the official market of the Vienna Stock Exchange. The performance of the two crypto currencies is replicated 1:1. Experienced investors can thus participate in the developments of the crypto markets via their national stock exchange, a regulated marketplace, by using their regular brokers account. A digital wallet, in which crypto currencies are stored for direct investments, is not required.

"Crypto-currencies offer experienced investors a new opportunity to diversify their portfolio. With the listing, we widen the selection of asset classes on the Vienna Stock Exchange. Investors can profit from the stock exchange advantages in crypto trading: Monitored, regulated and transparent trading with real-time information and secure settlement via their regular brokers account," says Thomas Rainer, Head of Business Development at Vienna Stock Exchange.

The market making of Lang & Schwarz makes continuous price fixings available between 9:15 am - 5:30 pm.
