Iconic Lists World’s First Physical ApeCoin ETP on Börse Stuttgart

Iconic Physical ApeCoin ETP (ISIN: DE000A3GYNY2; WKN: A3GYNY) is listed and begins trading on Börse Stuttgart on June 15, 2022. 

The exchange traded product (“ETP”), physically backed by ApeCoin, becomes the world’s first ApeCoin ETP and the most cost-effective way for investors to gain exposure to ApeCoin with a total expense ratio of 1.49%. The ETP is issued by Iconic Digital Assets AG, a subsidiary of Iconic Funds GmbH (collectively branded as “Iconic Funds”).

The Iconic Physical ApeCoin ETP tracks the spot price of ApeCoin via the CMBI ApeCoin Index. The ETP is 100% collateralized by coins held in an institutional-grade custody solution with Coinbase Custody (“Coinbase Germany GmbH”).

State Street Bank, one of the world’s leading Fund Administrators groups and administrator of Iconic’s other ETPs, will also serve as the ApeCoin ETP administrator.

Michael Geister, Head of Crypto ETPs at Iconic, said: ”The Iconic Physical ApeCoin ETP will provide exposure to the ecosystem built around the Bored and Mutant Ape Yacht Club NFTs developed by Yuga Labs. BAYC (Bored Ape Yacht Club) is one of the most valuable NFT collections available made famous by stars like Make Cuban or Serena Williams. Through ApeCoin investors have access to the growing NFT market.”

Iconic ETPs are designed to meet the highest institutional-grade standards in terms of security, trust and cost efficiency. Through Iconic ETPs, European investors can access crypto assets in a familiar manner by investing through trusted investment vehicles at industry-leading costs.
