BRISBANE, 5 March, 2024 – Monochrome Asset Management will be consolidating Bitcoin Interests in the Monochrome Bitcoin Trust (the Fund) on 02 April 2024 on a one-for-four basis.

This consolidation marks an important step forward as the firm prepares the Fund (which will be known as the Monochrome Bitcoin ETF (IBTC)) for quotation on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), which requires a minimum admission price of AUD$20 for traded lots, ensuring tighter spreads when trading. Further details are available in the letter sent to investors.

Once approved by the ASX, the Fund will operate as a 'dual-access' fund, allowing investors to transact both directly through the Automic registry portal and via standard broking channels on the ASX.

Pending the ASX’s approval for quotation, Monochrome is committed to keeping you informed every step of the way. Your continued support and interest in the Monochrome Bitcoin Trust (IBTC) are invaluable to us.
