Wilshire Phoenix Files With SEC for Publicly Traded Bitcoin-Backed Fund


Investment firm Wilshire Phoenix just filed with the SEC for a tradeable Bitcoin fund similar to the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust.

Investment firm Wilshire Phoenix has filed an S-1 registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, for a publicly traded Bitcoin fund in line with regulation.

“The Shares will provide investors with exposure to bitcoin in a manner that is accessible and cost-efficient without the uncertain and often complex requirements relating to acquiring or holding bitcoin.”

Wilshire’s new Bitcoin Commodity Trust aims to have its shares available for public trading on OTC Markets Group, Inc.’s OTCQX Best Marketplace. Once issued, “shares of the trust can be bought and sold throughout the trading day like any other publicly traded security,” the filing added.

This is a developing story and will be updated with more information.
