Bitcoin Futures vs. Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)
- Bitcoin Futures is basically gambling on air since it is not backed by physical Bitcoins
- Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) are backed by physical Bitcoins. This means that the ETF needs to buy BTC and hodl it as the underlying asset for the funds
- For the mainstream investors, SEC’s ETF approval brings regulatory legitimacy to cryptocurrency regardless of your opinion about regulations and government intervention
Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds will enable a whole new investor class to participate in cryptocurrency.

This includes pension funds, sovereign funds, hedge funds, etc.
- You can short $BTC Futures as many do
- With BTC ETFs, you can only go LONG — bet on the future increase of the underlying asset, i.e. bitcoin
- With Bitcoin Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), the equivalent amount of Bitcoin must be purchased on the open market
