iZiing platform allows crypto holders to diversify investments through purchase of Blockchain Traded Funds (BTFs). A BTF is the next generation of Exchange-Traded Fund (ETF) put on a blockchain and to be sold for a crypto currency as well as fiat currencies. An ETF trades like a common stock and tracks a basket of assets (stocks, commodities) through buying those assets physically or by buying derivatives. As of August 2017, ETF funds hold ~$4trn of assets and show 5yr CAGR of ~15%, that is 20 times more than total crypto market. 88% of ETF assets are in USA+EU, with only 12% in developing countries.
iZiing have prepared the BTF concept to enter those untapped segments of the ETF market by:
1) Robo-advisors – natural extension of BTF concept – will construct personal investment portfolios using the best investment practices.
2) Storing accounts on private iZiing Blockchain with many node holders shall embed trust in the records of ownership of BTFs.
