Alternative Investments/Digital: Valkyrie Moots An ETF That Invests In Corporate Bitcoin Players

The proposed ETF is called the “Valkyrie Innovative Balance Sheet ETF.”

Adding to the SEC’s growing pile of applications from asset managers to launch a bitcoin ETF is a new one from Valkyrie Digital Assets, but this one comes with a twist. The firm has filed for an ETF to be launched with the name “Valkyrie Innovative Balance Sheet ETF.” (

The firm’s latest filing follows on its filing in January for the SEC’s approval for its proposed bitcoin ETF titled the “Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund.”

Valkyrie Innovative Balance Sheet ETF

Proposed to be listed on the NYSE Arca exchange under the symbol GOT, the ETF is characterized as an actively-managed fund.

It will invest principally in the securities of operating companies that have innovative balance sheets, which the Fund’s investment adviser, KKM Financial LLC, considers to be operating companies that directly or indirectly invest in, transact in, or otherwise have exposure to bitcoin or operate in the bitcoin ecosystem.

Potential investment targets could also include bitcoin trading platforms, bitcoin miners, bitcoin custodians, digital wallet providers, companies that facilitate payments in bitcoin, and companies that provide other technology, equipment, or services to companies operating in the bitcoin ecosystem.

The fund managers will use a proprietary model to identify those innovative balance sheet issuers with the best returns potential.

The ETF will not invest directly in bitcoin or its derivatives.

However, the fund could also invest a significant portion (i.e. more than 25%) of its assets in securities of companies in the information technology sector.

Key corporate bitcoin investors

Though Valkyrie has not named any companies in its filing, several companies have made headlines recently for their bitcoin investments.

Here is a list from that shows the top five companies holding bitcoin as of date:

Meanwhile, the price of bitcoin, the leading cryptocurrency, hit a fresh all-time high above $61,500 on Sunday.

It is currently trading off those levels, however, at $56,383.
