London, England, 4th Nov 2021, Vincent Renser, the FinancialCentre’s broker, says cryptocurrencies have exploded in popularity over several months. Of course, the most popular remains bitcoin.
He adds that specific smaller cryptocurrencies are gaining a lot of momentum as the idea of digital money continues to permeate society.
“It’s amazing how fast it (cryptocurrencies) is growing. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
Troy Deloitte added-time investors are looking to diversify their portfolios by getting into specific financial products, such as ETFs.
He says the number of these products continues to grow. That’s because there are many types of ETFs available, with each having various strengths and weaknesses.
Some examples include Precious metals (DGZ), natural gas (UNY), high yield securities (JNK), retail companies (XRT), semiconductors (SMH), and master limited partnerships (AMLP).
One of the more popular ETFs has been First Trust Indxx Innovative Transaction & Process ETF, which began trading this year. That’s because it tracks all blockchain-related companies around the world.
Although there are only a few U.S.-listed ETFs related to blockchain, this will likely change in the future. After all, more and more financial institutions are adding new capabilities that leverage DLT (distributed ledger technology).
For instance, some banks, such as JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), use blockchain for cross-border payments and store customer data. Japan’s MUFG is doing something similar by using technology that doesn’t appear to be serious. Create a digital version of its yen currency situations around the world are looking quite closely at blockchain,” said Troy Deloitte.
Another area where First Trust Indxx Innovative Transaction & Process ETF stands out is cybersecurity.
That’s because the fund invests in companies that either specialize in cyber security or invest heavily in this space. This is important, given how cybercrime remains one of the biggest threats to financial institutions worldwide.
“Cybersecurity is the biggest concern I have right now,” said Troy Deloitte.
There are already several ETFs that help investors pick stocks that they feel fit their own unique financial goals. However, more of these types of products may be on the way soon.
The reason is that the financial industry recognizes that there’s a lot of potential in this area, given how consumers are always looking for new ways to make money.
That being said, it takes time to create these types of ETFs and get approval from regulators. So investors may have a long wait ahead of them before they see more choices in this space.
“The personal finance ETF will be a big hit,” said Vincent Renser.

Buterin, Charles Hoskinson, and Steven Nerayoff are the co-founders of Cardano. It is worth noting that Vinnie revealed he would be partnering up with Hoskinson to create future ETFs on cryptocurrencies other than Bitcoin. This is regardless if they are traded on major US exchanges or not.
JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) is a leading global financial services firm with assets of $2.6 trillion and operations worldwide. The firm is a leader in investment banking, financial services for consumers, small business and commercial banking, financial transaction processing, asset management and private equity. Its Fibonacci Retracement levels, based on the advance (wave 1) / retrace (wave 2) of wave three down are as follows:
$110.05 = 38.2% $114.74 = 50% $122.45 = 61.8% The idea behind using Fibonacci techniques is to help project possible areas of support and resistance. CME Group Inc. launched its Bitcoin price index last year, a move seen as a stamp of legitimacy from the largest options exchange in the U.S. The group owns the Dow Jones stock and financial markets Indices. It has teamed up with UK-based Crypto Facilities Ltd., a cryptocurrency trading platform, to launch the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR), which will provide a once-a-day reference rate of the U.S. dollar price of Bitcoin. Tim McCourt, managing director and global head of equity products and alternative investments at CME Group, oversees the new index.
However, in the end, he stated that determining which cryptocurrencies to invest in or whether to do so at all is a difficult task. There are now thousands of different kinds of cryptocurrencies available on the market. Some don’t appear to be serious, such as dogecoin, which was created as a joke. Others, like those based on the new technology of Ethereum, are more complex.
“Right now, the market is very fluid,” said Troy Deloitte. “It’s not clear what might happen.” We can’t be sure that these ETFs will get approved by the SEC in the coming months or years. However, they could offer diversification to U.S. And overall, and there are legitimate concerns over whether the altcoin boom is unsustainable and will soon come crashing down. Crypto is an esoteric domain — its intricacies can be challenging to understand, especially for those new to the space.
