Eddid helps HK crypto platforms with Bitcoin and Ether ETFs

The brokerage firm will help SFC-licensed virtual asset trading platforms with Bitcoin and Ether ETFs in Hong Kong.

Eddid Financial has been a participating dealer for the first batch of all six Spot Bitcoin and Spot Ether ETFs in Hong Kong.

The brokerage firm will help SFC-licensed virtual asset trading platforms to facilitate its clients in directly subscribing to and redeeming these ETFs using Bitcoin and Ether.

Eddid will also offer margin financing services for these ETFs, providing leverage against positions in virtual asset (“VA”) spot ETFs to enhance clients’ purchasing power.

The news comes on the heels of Hong Kong’s SFC conditional approval of three Spot Ether ETFs and three Asian-based Spot Bitcoin ETFs by Harvest Global, China AMC (Hong Kong), Bosera Asset Management and HashKey Capital.

Only a few dealers will participate in this entire batch of ETFs, assisting with their creation and redemption in the global primary market and to ensure smooth transactions. Eddid will be one of them.

Eddid will support in-kind subscriptions, redemptions, and offer margin for crypto spot ETFs

According to Eddid, Hong Kong is the first global market to support in-kind subscriptions and redemptions for VA spot ETFs, significantly enhancing market flexibility and liquidity.

The firm will be among the first brokers in Hong Kong to offer such in-kind subscriptions and redemption services, and will also be one of the first brokers in the jurisdiction to offer margin financing services for VA spot ETFs, enabling clients to leverage their positions in these ETFs.

Additionally, its research team will provide investors with a series of professional research reports on VA-related products. Reports on the upcoming Spot Bitcoin and Spot Ether ETFs have already been published and are accessible for free without registration.
