21Shares AG, a fintech company from Switzerland, has unveiled a Bitcoin exchange-traded product. This makes it the first physical-backed BTC ETP Middle East.
Recently, the firm went on a listing spree and introduced Bitcoin and Ethereum ETNs to Nasdaq Stockholm, Euronext Paris, Amsterdam and other crypto ETPs.
The latest offering
21Shares, an investment product issuer, has expanded its global reach with the launch of a bitcoin exchange-traded (ETP), on the Nasdaq Dubai international financial exchange. The same ticker will be used in Europe – ABTC – to trade the feature.
21Shares now lists 46 crypto products in seven countries by adding the United Arab Emirates ETP.
Hany Rashwan, CEO and Co-Founder at 21Shares, praised the Middle East for its importance in the digital asset sector. He promised that 21Shares would continue to support the region in its efforts to become a global crypto center.
21Shares named Sherif El Hadad, the head of its Middle East division, two months ago. This executive is a strong proponent of crypto and believes it can be “the asset for the future for investors, wealth managers all over the globe.”
Chainalysis research shows that the region is the fastest growing cryptocurrency market. This could make it a good location for the organization. From July 2021 to June 20,22, local consumers received $566 billion worth of digital assets. This is 48% more than they had the previous year.
Dubai, which is the financial center of the Middle East, often headlines the crypto space. Over the past few months, leading exchanges like Binance, CryptoCom and OKX were allowed to offer their products and services on local soil by the domestic watchdogs.
Additionally, Dubai’s top flag carrier, Emirates Airline, and Palazzo Versace Dubai, a five-star hotel, said that they will accept bitcoin and other alternative coins as payment.
