Bitcoin Futures ETFs

Bitcoin futures ETFs are the first type of bitcoin ETF that has been launched for trading in the U.S. markets.

These ETFs will enable advisors to gain exposure to bitcoin through the use of futures contracts. This is different from holding physical bitcoin as futures contracts are agreements to buy or sell the asset for a later predetermined price. Therefore, there is the possibility of tracking error (from the spot price of bitcoin) as well as roll costs (known as contango) associated with having to buy new contracts as a result of existing futures contracts expiring.
