Hashdex, a Brazilian crypto asset manager, has been approved to list exchange-traded products (ETP) in the European Union, the company announced Tuesday.
Hashdex is already working with European service providers – including exchanges – to list ETPs in different countries of the European Union, the company said in the statement. “We hope to move forward to be the main European issuer of cryptocurrency products, always promoting innovative and diversified strategies,” said Bruno Sousa, the company’s head of new markets.
In May, Hashdex launched the Hashdex Nasdaq Crypto Index Europe ETP on the SIX stock exchange in Switzerland after having won approval to operate in that country.
Hashdex currently offers six crypto-related exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in Brazil.
