XBT Provider AB has launched Bitcoin Tracker EUR, a new bitcoin-based security denominated in euros that will be available for trading on Nasdaq’s Nordic exchange.
XBT Provider’s Bitcoin Tracker EUR is slated to be available for trading on October 5, 2015. The newly launched Bitcoin Tracker EUR was designed to help provide market participants with convenient access to the returns of the underlying asset, i.e. the US dollar (USD) per Bitcoin – additionally, investors will incur less fees with the new security.
Furthermore, Bitcoin Tracker EUR has already been approved by Sweden’s financial supervisory authority, Finansinspektionen. The next step will be the formal admittance to trading on Nasdaq Nordic followed by its live trading launch in October.
