WisdomTree Downplays Slow Bitcoin ETF Launch, Emphasizes App Utility

WisdomTree continues to show a positive outlook even though the start of their Bitcoin ETF was rather slow in comparison to competitors but financial advisors keep allocating more funds to this type of products. On the other hand, the company develops that their consumer app is an advanced means of securing bitcoin while going over the boundaries of an ETF.

Since WisdomTree’s US spot Bitcoin ETF was listed in January, client interest remained low in comparison with other similar products on the market. While the firm expects growth, its major distributor which are the financial advisors will start integrating the Bitcoin ETFs into their portfolios, creating an opportunity for them to grow.

While on earnings call, the Chief Operating Officer Jarrett Lilien underplayed the import of the sluggish ETF’s adoption to focus on the benefit in holding Bitcoin through the application. An app that was put into circulation last year called WisdenTree Prime App has thus been providing a chance to its users to access different digital funds for Bitcoin, Ethereum, as well as for dollar and gold tokens. It also has features such as payment as well as P2P transactions, it lacks in the traditional ETFs.

In the near future, executives want to deploy the application to the entire nation so that the scope of 38 states can also achieve the same result. They think that with a larger feature set and utility, the app’s greater applicability puts it ahead of the ETF as a choice for holding Bitcoins.

Although the enthusiasm for the WisdomTree Bitcoin ETF may not have been to their liking, WisdomTree seems certain that their application will eventually emerge as the better alternative for the Bitcoin that investors were looking to use as a substitute for wealth.
