Due to the strong gains in the yellow metal, investors may be looking to invest in gold. Gold mining companies ETF such as GDX may be a popular choice.

VanEck is attempting to appeal to cryptocurrency investors by providing exposure to both gold and bitcoin mining. Although these are 2 separate markets, due to the tension between Russia and Ukraine, they may have become highly desirable (if approved).

To be eligible for the Global Digital Asset Mining Index, companies must generate at least 50% of their profits from mining digital assets or alternatively a technology that is related to crypto mining.

Companies are developing projects that have the potential to obtain at least half of their revenues from activities related to crypto mining.
