BlackRock announces the launch of a new private spot Bitcoin trust

A new blog post by BlackRock on Thursday reveals that the world’s biggest asset management, overseeing more than $10 trillion in assets, has launched a private Bitcoin trust (BTC). Only institutional investors in the United States can access the fund, which seeks to track Bitcoin’s performance and reduce its liabilities and expenses. BlackRock explained the decision by saying:

“Despite the sharp downturn in digital asset markets, we still see substantial interest from institutional clients in how to cost-effectively and efficiently access these assets through our technology and product capabilities.” Bitcoin is the oldest and largest digital asset, and it is our primary topic of interest in the digital asset space.

Private investment trusts that don’t solicit investments from retail investors are not required to register with the United States regulatory authorities. Others, like the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust can still be publicly traded on the over-the counter markets, but not SEC-registered.

Bitcoin holds close to half of the market capitalization, excluding stablecoins. BlackRock states that the blockchain’s energy consumption is being encouraged by organizations like RMI and Energy Web. These organizations are working to improve transparency in Bitcoin mining’s sustainable energy usage.

BlackRock and Coinbase partnered last week to offer its clients a direct assessment to crypto. BlackRock’s institutional investment platform Aladdin will provide crypto trading, custody and prime brokerage to all users who sign up for Coinbase Prime. BlackRock also stated that it has been researching in four areas related to digital assets: permission blockchains and stablecoins as well as tokenization and crypto assets.
