Press Release: 21Shares ETPs Reaches Record Primary And Secondary Exchange Volumes

05/25/2021 | 02:00am EDT
 
   Amidst high market volatility, Europe's largest crypto ETF issuer sees 
over $100M in trading volume as investors embrace the crypto dip 
 
   Zurich, 25 May 2021 - 21Shares AG, the Swiss pioneering issuer is 
pleased to announce that its Exchange Traded Products ("ETPs") reached 
new record on and off exchange volumes on Wednesday, May 19, 2021. 
 
   With more than $110M in 21Shares's ETPs changing hands on a single day 
with significant market volatility, it had the highest volume traded on 
the Zurich Six Exchange where the Issuer reached close to $2bn in Assets 
under Management early in the week as cryptocurrency markets reached 
market capitalisation as high as $2.5trillions in very volatile 
conditions. 
 
   These record highs marked a new milestone for 21Shares. The previous 
record high was in February 2021 with $52M traded on a single day. 
21Shares faced several larger than normal primary orders during that 
period of volatility where its primary market team had no hesitation in 
processing higher than usual orders with its Authorised Participants 
("AP"), subsequently resulting in no delays and concerns as well as no 
tracking errors for its listed ETPs. On its own, this is a test that 
21Shares' processes and systems function seamlessly and clients will 
feel no trading interrupting despite these tricky conditions. 
 
   Ethereum exposure under the AETH investment ETP continues to see net 
inflows and is by far the most notable ETP AuM growth and stands 
currently as the second highest product in its range of ETPs. This 
reflects increased investor interest in a wider range of digital assets 
beyond just bitcoin as 21Shares remains the only issuer with such a 
large range of crypto ETPs and growing levels of participation in this 
market. 
 
   Hany Rashwan, CEO of 21Shares reported "These impressive volumes 
demonstrate the quality of our ETPs which since we launched the 1(st) 
crypto basket in November 2018 and subsequent bitcoin ETP, 21Shares 
continues to operate seamlessly in the primary and secondary markets 
even during the most volatile periods. This reflect on the trust in our 
institutional based clients in allocating more exposure to our open 
ended products during difficult market conditions. " 
 
   21Shares is celebrating close to 3 years of successful operation and 
during this time has set the standard for quality and transparency 
offered to investors to which it has achieved several first milestones: 
 
 
   -- November 2018 : 21Shares lists the world's first crypto basket ETP in the 
      Swiss SIX Exchange 
 
   -- February 2019 : 21Shares lists the first open ended bitcoin ETP in Europe 
 
   -- June 2019 : 21Shares lists the first white-label ETP in conjunction with 
      Bitwise 
 
   -- Oct/Nov 2019 : 21Shares lists the first white-label BMR approved ETPs in 
      collaboration with Bitcoin Suisse and Sygnum Bank under the ticker ABBA 
      and MOON 
 
   -- March 2020 : 21Shares is awarded Most Innovative Crypto Product by ADVFN 
      in London 
 
   -- July 2020 : 21Shares lists the centrally cleared bitcoin ETP on the 
      Frankfurt regulated exchange Xetra and subsequently dual-list the first 
      short bitcoin ETP on the same venue thereafter 
 
   -- November 2020 : Surpassed $150 in AuM after record inflows 
 
   -- February 2021 : Surpassed $1bn in AuM and launches the first Polkadot ETP 
      on the Swiss SIX exchange 
 
   -- April 2021 : Reaches close to $2bn in AuM after an active trading quarter
