In a recent SEC filing, the New York-based investment management firm Wilshire Phoenix wants to offer BTC to its clients who will be able to gain exposure to crypto through a publicly-traded fund dubbed “Bitcoin Commodity Trust”.
“The Shares will provide investors with exposure to bitcoin in a manner that is accessible and cost-efficient without the uncertain and often complex requirements relating to acquiring or holding bitcoin,” according to official notes.
Wilshire Phoenix plans to register 80,000 shares of the new Bitcoin trust with each share that is carrying a maximum price of $25.
