The Index methodology was developed in part with Hashdex, a global asset manager, in preparation for their filing for an ETF to make digital assets more accessible to investors. In February 2021, Hashdex launched the Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto ETF (HDEX), which tracks the Nasdaq Crypto Index (NCI) on the Bermuda Stock Exchange (BSX). The Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto ETF is the world’s first cryptoasset-based ETF and is available on the BSX to accredited non-U.S. investors at this time.
In April 2021, Hashdex launched another version of its flagship fund, The Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto ETF (HASH11), on Brazil’s B3 exchange.
In August 2021, Hashdex partnered with Nasdaq and Victory Capital to launch a private fund that tracks the NCI and that’s available to accredited U.S. investors. Known as the Victory Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Fund, U.S. investors can now access a diversified portfolio of the most liquid digital assets via a single, low-cost structure. The Company also filed an initial registration statement with the SEC to eventually offer the strategy in an ETF vehicle.
In May 2022, Hashdex launched the Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Europe exchange-traded product ("ETP") on the SIX Swiss Exchange under the ticker SIX: HASH SW. Tracking the Nasdaq Crypto Index Europe™ (NCIE™), the ETP represents the firm's first European product and gives investors access to the latest and most well capitalized blockchain technologies. Nasdaq launched the Index the same day as the ETP.
In September 2022, Hashdex launched the Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Europe ETP on the Euronext Paris and Euronext Amsterdam exchanges under the ticker symbols HASH FP and HASH NA, respectively, and on Deutsche Börse Xetra exchange under the ticker symbol HDX1 GY.
