Frequently Asked
Questions (FAQs)

Bitcoin is a digital asset that uses blockchain technology to record ownership and transactions on a decentralised public ledger. It is created through a process called mining and has a limited supply of 21 million bitcoin. Bitcoin is used as a form of digital currency and is known for its high volatility and potential as an investment.

Someone can invest in Bitcoin by investing in a Bitcoin ETF like the Monochrome Bitcoin ETF (IBTC), which provides exposure to Bitcoin's price movements without the need for direct ownership, or by purchasing Bitcoin directly through a cryptocurrency exchange and storing it in a digital wallet.

Buying IBTC, the Monochrome Bitcoin ETF, offers several advantages over buying Bitcoin (BTC) directly:

Ease of Access: IBTC allows investors to gain exposure to Bitcoin without needing to handle the technical aspects of buying, storing, and securing Bitcoin themselves.

Security: The ETF uses a professional custodian to securely store the Bitcoin, reducing the risk of theft or loss associated with self-custody.

Regulatory Oversight: IBTC is regulated as a financial product in Australia, providing investors with certain consumer protections that are not available with direct Bitcoin investments.

Convenience: Investors can buy and sell IBTC on the Cboe trading platform or through the Registry, just like other traditional financial products, making it easier to manage within a diversified investment portfolio.

For you, as an investor in the Monochrome Bitcoin ETF, &ldqou;absolute entitlement” means that you are regarded as having a direct and specific beneficial interest in the bitcoin allocated to your Bitcoin Interests.

Tax Treatment: Your investment in the ETF may be treated as if you directly own the Bitcoin for tax purposes. This could impact how capital gains tax is applied to your investment.

Beneficial Ownership: You are considered to have a beneficial ownership of the Bitcoin, even though the Bitcoin is held in trust by the Responsible Entity. This means you benefit from any gains in the value of the Bitcoin and bear the risks of any losses.

Legal Clarity: It clarifies your rights to the Bitcoin held in trust, ensuring that your entitlement to the Bitcoin is recognised under the terms of the ETF and relevant laws.

Overall, absolute entitlement ensures that your investment in the ETF is treated in a manner similar to direct ownership of Bitcoin, but with the added benefits of professional management and custody provided by the ETF .

The NAV of the Monochrome Bitcoin ETF is calculated daily by State Street, using the AUD value of the Bitcoin held by the ETF based on the CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate Asia Pacific Variant, adjusted for management fees, cash holdings, and liabilities.
