Dan Izzo, CEO of GHCO, says: “This launch marks yet another significant step in the rise of regulated crypto-related financial products. As digital assets continue to mature as an asset class, we expect to see more demand for these kinds of products.”

Jad Comair, President of Melanion Capital, says: “This is the result of a strong investor demand for bitcoin-related products in France and across Europe and we plan to bring more institutional-grade crypto products to the market.”
