The Evolution of Crypto:
From Novelty to an Asset Class
Enter the crypto investment universe
The digital asset ecosystem has experienced rapid growth in recent years, driven by technological innovation, the emergence of novel use cases globally, and the continuing integration of digital technologies into more aspects of everyday life. Opportunities in this space currently include exposure to new forms of digital payments, decentralized finance applications and digital collectibles - with others yet to emerge.
In this dynamic environment, benefits can be seen from exposure to established blockchain networks with critical mass - in terms of market capitalization, user base and trading volume – coupled with the technical and security maturity that comes from successfully operating for such a sustained period.
Investing in crypto assets via an ETF (exchange-traded fund) allows investors to enter the crypto assets universe while utilizing the best of traditional financial infrastructure and product structuring.

By contrast, the WisdomTree Managed Futures Strategy Fund (WTMF) uses a quantitative, rules-based approach. It seeks to deliver positive total returns in rising or falling markets through a range of futures contracts that include commodities, equities, currencies and interest rates and now invests up to 5% of its net assets in bitcoin futures contracts.
