Ethereum is everything most crypto assets are not. For starters, it has real-world utility: The Ethereum blockchain functions like an “app store” for crypto, hosting thousands of applications with hundreds of thousands of daily users. And unlike many others, Ethereum produces revenues in the billions of dollars each year, which makes valuing it more interesting than valuing other crypto assets.
This combination of factors, along with the recent launch of Ethereum futures ETFs, is capturing the attention of Wall Street. In this webinar, Bitwise Crypto Research Analyst Juan Leon will dive into the key topics financial advisors need to know about Ethereum, the world’s most compelling crypto asset.

RISK DISCLOSURE AND IMPORTANT INFORMATION
No Advice on Investment; Risk of Loss: Prior to making any investment decision, each investor must undertake its own independent examination and investigation, including the merits and risks involved in an investment, and must base its investment decision – including a determination whether the investment would be a suitable investment for the investor – on such examination and investigation. Cryptocurrency is a digital representation of value that functions as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, or a store of value, but it does not have legal tender status. Cryptocurrencies are sometimes exchanged for U.S. dollars or other currencies around the world, but they are not currently backed nor supported by any government or central bank. Their value is completely derived by market forces of supply and demand, and they are more volatile than traditional currencies, stocks, or bonds. Trading in cryptocurrencies comes with significant risks, including volatile market price swings or flash crashes, market manipulation, and cybersecurity risks and risk of losing principal or all of your investment. In addition, cryptocurrency markets and exchanges are not regulated with the same controls or customer protections available in equity, option, futures, or foreign exchange investing. Cryptocurrency trading requires knowledge of cryptocurrency markets. In attempting to profit through cryptocurrency trading, you must compete with traders worldwide. You should have appropriate knowledge and experience before engaging in substantial cryptocurrency trading. Cryptocurrency trading can lead to large and immediate financial losses. Under certain market conditions, you may find it difficult or impossible to liquidate a position quickly at a reasonable price.
