to the Report Chicago Mercantile Exchange Quinn Desk announced in a statement on its website that Van Ek One’s new fund will start trading on Tuesday with the symbol “XBTF”. The announcement says that the launch will begin with the initial auction and after the release of index data.
The date for the release of Van Eck’s futures ETF was announced shortly after the US Securities and Exchange Commission rejected Van Eck’s request for a Bitcoin cash ETF late last week.

However, Van Eck officials have so far declined to comment on why the new trading fund did not start.
