In connection with this month's rebalancing, there is no change in the cryptocurrencies included in the Virtune Crypto Top 10 Index ETP SEK / EUR.
The rebalancing is carried out according to the index that the ETP follows, the Virtune Vinter Crypto Top 10 Index, and this is the sixth rebalancing since the product was listed on May 15th this year. The purpose of the frequent monthly rebalancing is to ensure that the ETP always reflects the current market conditions and to effectively absorb volatility in the cryptocurrency market.
The performance of Virtune Crypto Top 10 Index ETP SEK for October was +16.32%, resulting in a return of +14.36% since its listing on May 15th.
In October, the cryptocurrency market experienced strong growth, with Bitcoin showing an increase of 26%. Altcoins also had a positive trend, with several of them experiencing significant gains, such as Chainlink with a 38% increase.
Several companies, including BlackRock and Fidelity, have applied to launch Spot Bitcoin ETFs. With over $20 trillion in managed assets representing these applications, market expectations for approvals have risen. The decision day for approving Spot Bitcoin ETF applications at SEC is set for January 10, 2024. While approval of a U.S. Bitcoin ETF is expected, a rejection could negatively impact the market.
Bitcoin tends to attract capital inflows when there is increased global liquidity through economic stimulus, among other factors. Historically, previous Bitcoin halvings, which reduce the rate at which new Bitcoins are created by 50%, have been followed by price increases. The next halving is scheduled for April 2024.
The performance of the cryptocurrencies included in Virtune Crypto Top 10 Index ETP in October:

Virtune's crypto index ETP is the first of its kind in the Nordic region. The ETP includes up to 10 leading cryptocurrencies that are part of the Nasdaq Crypto Index, based on their total market value, with a maximum weight of 40% per cryptocurrency to promote diversification. This allows investors to benefit from broad exposure to the cryptocurrency market without being heavily concentrated in any single currency.
