STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, OCTOBER 11, 2017 - Investors seeking exposure to the price movement of ether, the native token of the Ethereum platform, just got a new, but familiar option: two Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) which track the price of Ether - Ether Tracker One (COINETH:SS) and Ether Tracker Euro (COINETHE:SS).

We are thrilled to be able to deliver on investor demand via a safe, familiar route in Nasdaq," says Laurent Kssis MD of XBT Provider by CoinShares.

In similar fashion to the group's bitcoin ETNs, the ether ETNs are structured to track the price of ether, as determined by an index rate comprising the average of the 3 most liquid of a select group of exchanges, daily. The ETNs are traded during normal market hours on Nasdaq Stockholm.
