Bitcoin Could Supplant Gold as a Store of Value

Technical analysts are closely watching whether the digital currency can break through its current price levels–specifically, a move past a resistance level of $6,800 could signal another bullish trend. The latest uptick in BTC’s price could be backed by the recent news of a Bitcoin ETN.

A Bitcoin ETN is now available for investors who have been reticent to dive into cryptocurrencies can now invest in an exchange-traded note with the leading digital currency as its underlying asset. Per a Bloomberg report, American investors now have access to Bitcoin Tracker One and BTC ETN.

The investment product will be available under the “CXBTF” ticker symbol and will be quoted in U.S. dollars. The clearing and settlement of the trade will be available in the Krona and Euro since the product is listed and regulated in Sweden. The ETN is issued by XBT Provider, which is a subsidiary of CoinShares.

The news of the ETN came at a critical juncture for cryptocurrencies as the US Securities and Exchange Commission is postponing their decision on a bitcoin ETF filed by investment firm VanEck and blockchain technology company SolidX. Regulatory control by the SEC under an exchange would help reticent investors adopt Bitcoin as a legitimate investment opportunity.
