​​​Interest in cryptocurrencies has grown exponentially in 2017 thanks in large part to increased supply and demand in China and Japan. As a result, traders have increasingly yearned for a product which enables them to speculate on the price of Bitcoin, the original and most well-known cryptocurrency.

Saxo’s two new ETNs

Saxo clients can get exposure to Bitcoin through two new Exchange Traded Notes (ETNs) designed to track the movement of Bitcoin against the US Dollar (BTC/USD).

‘Bitcoin Tracker One’ is traded in Swedish krona (SEK) and ‘Bitcoin Tracker EURO’ is traded in Euro (EUR). Both ETNs are issued by XBT Provider AB and traded on Nasdaq OMX (Stockholm).

If you are subscribed to these exchanges, the Bitcoin trackers will be enabled automatically on your platform.

How to find Bitcoin in the platform ?

The easiest way to find the new instruments is by searching for “bitcoin” in the trading platform. The ETNs will appear in your search result list.
