Currently, there are few public companies for which Blockchain technology represents an attributable and significant revenue stream, and companies eligible for inclusion in the index may have minimal ties to blockchain. In addition: cryptographic keys necessary to transact on a blockchain may be subject to theft, loss, or destruction; competing platforms and technologies may be developed that consumers use instead of blockchain; that companies that use blockchain technology may be subject to cybersecurity risk, and that such companies may not be able to develop applications or may not be able to capitalize on them; that there may be a lack of liquid markets and possible manipulation of blockchain-based assets; that there may be risks posed by the lack of regulation in this space; that blockchain systems built using third party products may be subject to technical defects or vulnerabilities beyond a company's control; and that blockchain is a new and untested technology which may never be implemented on a scale that provides identifiable benefits.
Shares are bought and sold at market price not net asset value (NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the Fund. Market performance is determined using the bid/ask midpoint at 4:00pm Eastern time when the NAV is typically calculated and do not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Brokerage commissions will reduce returns.
