Bitcoin’s story has been one of innovation and growth. The world’s leading cryptoasset has been on a remarkable journey since its launch 15 years ago, steadily rising in terms of access and use cases, to become the most widely adopted digital asset.*
Now, the launch of spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds in the U.S. represents a convergence of bitcoin and traditional finance – making bitcoin more accessible to a wider range of investors. This is quite an evolution for what was once considered a niche financial technology.
Join Ric Edelman, along with BlackRock’s Jay Jacobs, US Head of Thematics and Alternative ETFs, and Robert Mitchnick, Head of Digital Assets, as they discuss the fundamentals of bitcoin and bitcoin ETFs.

Investing in digital assets involves significant risks due to their extreme price volatility and the potential for loss, theft, or compromise of private keys. The value of the investment is closely tied to acceptance, industry developments, and governance changes, making them susceptible to market sentiment. A disruption of the internet or a digital asset network would affect the ability to transfer digital assets, and, consequently, would impact their value.
