Hashdex to launch Web3 ETF on Brazilian stock exchange

Crypto asset manager Hashdex is to launch its Web3 ETF on the Brazilian stock exchange, B3, under the ticker symbol WEB311 at the end of March.

The firm writes that its latest product was developed with the objective of offering a secure and diversified method for investing in Web3 and its underlying smart contract platforms. The reserve period for the new ETF begins Monday, March 14, 2022 through Friday, March 25, 2022.

“We believe Web3 represents the future of the internet and is a further indication of the possibilities offered through blockchain technology,” says Marcelo Sampaio, co-founder and CEO at Hashdex. “The WEB311 ETF not only provides exposure to the smart contract platforms underpinning Web3, but serves as an accessible and unique way to invest in projects that will be the main engine of the internet of the future.”

Developed in partnership with CF Benchmarks, a global provider of digital asset market indices, WEB311 will replicate the “CF Web 3.0 Smart Contract Platforms Index”. The Index allocates to digital assets native to smart contract blockchains, with an initial composition of seven large digital assets: Ethereum (22.5 per cent); Cardano (22.5 per cent); Solana (22.1 per cent); Polkadot (19.5 per cent); Algorand (8.8 per cent); Tezos (3.5 per cent); and Cosmos (1.1 per cent).

“CF Benchmarks is immensely proud its Web 3.0 Smart Contract Platforms Index will be replicated by the world’s first ETF dedicated to Smart Contract Blockchain Assets – the ground-breaking WEB311 ETF. Hot on the heels of the DEFI11 ETF, this launch is further proof of growing investor demand for regulated exposure to specific segments of the fast-maturing blockchain economy, demonstrating how our partners at Hashdex are committed to delivering innovation for both institutional and individual investors,” says Sui Chung, CEO of CF Benchmarks.

The firm writes that WEB311 ETF further builds on Hashdex’s innovative and unique crypto offerings available to trade on the B3. The firm has already launched HASH11, which currently has more than 150,000 investors, BITH11, a 100 per cent green bitcoin product, ETHE11, an index fund that invests entirely in Ethereum, and DEFI11, which seeks to offer investors diversified, secure, and regulated exposure in all segments of the DeFi ecosystem.
