The Heart of Crypto Innovation

Bitwise CIO Matt Hougan calls Ethereum “the world’s most exciting crypto asset.” Today, a majority of the most popular crypto applications—from decentralized finance (DeFi) to stablecoins to non-fungible tokens (NFTs)—are built on Ethereum. These apps support millions of users and execute billions of annual transactions.

An Asset Driven by Revenue

Ethereum is unlike many other crypto assets in that its value is driven directly by the use of the Ethereum blockchain. Every time people use an application built on Ethereum, they have to pay a fee using the Ethereum asset. This fee is returned to Ethereum investors in a manner similar to stock buybacks and dividends, providing an important starting point for valuations.

An ETF Backed by Crypto Experts

Bitwise is the largest crypto index fund manager in America, with the largest suite of crypto-themed ETFs. Bitwise’s nationwide team of more than 60 professionals provides AETH investors the tools, insights, and specialized experience to help them navigate the space with confidence.

Performance data quoted represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Short-term performance, in particular, is not a good indication of the fund's future performance, and an investment should not be made based solely on returns. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the original cost. Returns for periods of one year or less are not annualized. For the most recent month-end performance, please call 1-866-880-7228.
 
Performance of one year or less is not annualized. NAV performance is calculated based on the official closing values as of 4:00 p.m. ET. Market Price performance reflects the midpoint of the bid-ask spread as of 4:00 p.m. ET, and does not represent the returns an investor would receive if shares were traded at other times. Fund returns are calculated net of expenses. Shares are subject to a 0.85% Expense Ratio that includes the management fee, custody charges for holding the fund’s assets charged by the custodian, and customary fees and expenses of the fund administrator and auditor.
