“The ETF will be available for public trading on BSX once the Nasdaq Crypto Index [NCI] is officially launched,” a spokesperson for Hashdex said.

However, the launch date of the cryptocurrency exchange-traded fund has not yet been officially announced. “We can’t confirm any dates at this moment. However, it shouldn’t take long. We need the NCI launch first,” the Hashdex spokesperson added.

The exchange’s rep did not yet reveal details of the new crypto investment product but added that they will be announced upon launch. “Nasdaq will reveal more details about the index methodology once it is launched as well,” the spokesperson said.
