FRANKFURT, GERMANY, November 29, 2023 – Deutsche Digital Assets GmbH has gained a renowned institutional anchor investor for the DDA Crypto Select 10 ETP (ISIN: DE000A3G3ZD0 | WKN: A3G3ZD), which was launched in June 2023. DDA prevailed against the competition in a selection process and was commissioned to design a crypto ETP that meets high quality standards and strict requirements of an institutional investor.

After several months of preparation, this investment product can now be administered by a leading capital management company acting on behalf of numerous institutional investors. This makes it accessible for purchase by various pension funds and other institutional investors.

Since its Xetra listing in June 2023, the DDA Crypto Select 10 ETP has generated notable investor interest, accumulating over €13 million in investments from various Family Offices and High Net Worth Individuals (as of November 28, 2023).

”We would like to thank our investors for placing their trust in Deutsche Digital Assets, and we eagerly anticipate a collaborative partnership,” states Dr. Jens Bernhardt, Managing Director of Deutsche Digital Assets GmbH. “This investment once again signals that crypto investments are increasingly becoming the focus of renowned institutional investors. Both the potential returns and the sustained optimization of the Sharpe ratio make it more than necessary to add crypto investments to an institutional asset allocation.”

“We are witnessing increasingly bullish signals for the year 2024 and are proud to be the only provider to offer a product that meets the highest institutional standards. With the DDA Crypto Select 10 ETP, we are not only providing retail investors but also institutional investors the opportunity to invest in this exciting and rapidly growing asset class,” says Maximilian Lautenschläger, Managing Director of Deutsche Digital Assets GmbH.

The DDA Crypto Select 10 ETP is an exchange-traded product that reflects the price of (up to) the 10 largest cryptocurrencies by market capitalization, providing risk diversification required for institutional investors. The ETP is 100% physically collateralized by a basket of cryptocurrencies and is traded on Xetra. Each bond gives the holder a claim to a predefined amount of the underlying asset.

Other essential details of the DDA Crypto Select 10 ETP are the physical collateralization through the basket components (which are stored in “cold storage”), the listing and trading on Xetra, the exposure to the (up to) 10 largest cryptocurrencies as well as the tax exemption for German tax citizens on capital gains after a minimum holding period of twelve months. Further product information can be found on the Deutsche Digital Assets website.

The new listing complements DDA’s offering of crypto exchange traded products including DDA Physical Bitcoin ETP (XBTI, ISIN: DE000A3GK2N1) and DDA Physical Ethereum ETP (IETH, ISIN: DE000A3GTML1) on multiple European exchanges.
