Noted investor Cathie Wood’s Ark Investment Management and investment-product firm 21Shares are part of a new application to the U.S Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to list a bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund (ETF).

  • The Wednesday filing was submitted by Alpha Architect ETF Trust, with 21Shares listed as the fund’s sub-adviser.

  • Ark Investment will provide marketing support, but not make investment decisions or provide investment advice, the filing said.

  • If the application is successful, the ARK 21Shares Bitcoin Futures Strategy ETF will list on the Cboe BZX Exchange under the ticker symbol “ARKA.”

  • Ark and 21Shares previously joined the race to get a bitcoin ETF approved, filing with the SEC to list the ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF in June.

  • Because the SEC hasn’t approve any spot bitcoin ETFs, attention has turned to funds that invest in the bitcoin futures market, a kind of ETF that SEC Chairman Gary Gensler has suggested would have a greater chance of winning approval.
