What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin, established in 2009, represents a groundbreaking development in financial technology. It is a rule-based monetary system with a fixed limit of 21 million units, ensuring its value over time. Currently, approximately 19.6 million Bitcoins have been mined, and it is expected that the last Bitcoin will be mined around the year 2140.


Unique to Bitcoin is its halving mechanism, where the number of new Bitcoins generated every ten minutes (currently 6.25 Bitcoin) is halved every four years. The next halving is scheduled for April 2024. This method is similar to how gold is mined, where the amount of new gold entering the market gradually decreases over time, contributing to its value and rarity. This process of deflationary pressure is a central aspect that compares Bitcoin to gold, highlighting its potential as a long-term store of value.

The impact of Bitcoin in a traditional portfolio

BTC

The depicted graph demonstrates the impact of allocating either 3% (depicted in orange) or 5% (depicted in green) to Bitcoin on the overall performance of a conventional portfolio. Allocating 3% or 5% to Bitcoin over a 5-year period (2019-2024) would significantly enhance the overall return of the total portfolio.


We believe that Bitcoin should constitute 1-5% of a portfolio and be positioned in the alternative investment section of a well-diversified portfolio.

Important events 2024

Spot Bitcoin ETFs approved in the USA

10 Spot Bitcoin ETFs are approved by the SEC in the USA. Some of the world's largest asset managers, including BlackRock, with a total of $17.7 trillion in managed assets, have now launched Spot Bitcoin ETFs in the USA.

MiCA regulation

MiCA (“Market in Crypto Assets”) which is the first crypto regulation in the European Union, is being applied during 2024 which is an important regulatory progress for the whole crypto market.

Bitcoin halving in 2024

The Bitcoin halving in 2024 is significant for the market as it reduces the creation of new Bitcoins, potentially leading to increased value per unit by creating higher demand as the supply diminishes.

A 100% physically backed structure for maximum investor protection

Unlike many certificates available on the market, our Exchange-Traded Products (ETPs) are always 100% physically backed, which is crucial as it guarantees the value of each ETP.


This means that we store the corresponding cryptocurrency of equivalent value at our custodian Coinbase, in a so-called cold storage with institutional security level.

Safety measures for you as an investor

Collateral Agent

Virtune employs a Collateral Agent whose purpose is to protect and represent investors in our products. The cryptocurrencies held in cold storage (offline) at Coinbase are separate from Virtune's balance sheet.

Physically backed

Our product is 100% physically backed, meaning that we always store the corresponding cryptocurrency with our custodian Coinbase in an amount equal to at least 100% of the value of all our ETPs.

Secure

Virtune offers a range of regulated and physically backed crypto Exchange Traded Products with institutional grade security available on regulated markets. Coinbase, the global leader in institutional custody solutions, serves as the custodian for securely storing the underlying cryptocurrencies in cold-storage.

Traded directly

Virtune's products are traded directly on regulated exchanges in as straightforward a manner as trading a stock through your online broker. The products can be held in your ISK (Investeringssparkonto) or capital insurance, potentially providing tax advantages.

Sustainability is an important part of our business

At Virtune, sustainability is a crucial factor for us, and we strive to align our business strategy with sustainability efforts.

Virtune collaborates with ClimatePartner Sweden AB for our climate compensating efforts. We compensate annually to a value corresponding to a predetermined share of our total managed capital through investments in a diversified portfolio of projects within renewable energy, social impact and nature-based projects.

These projects are in line with the United Nations' 17 sustainability goals and meet, among other things, The Gold Standard and The Verified Carbon Standard.
