The new ETP is coming just after Polkadot got added to 21Shares’ top ETP product Crypto Basket ETP (HODL) on January 29. HODL, which tracks five top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), has now removed Bitcoin Cash (BCH) from its listings and is replacing it with Polkadot as the second-largest constituent after Bitcoin.

21Shares, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange-traded products (ETPs), is releasing the very first Polkadot (DOT) ETP. The company announced earlier that the new product might get listed on the Swiss SIX exchange on February 4, 2021.

According to a report from MVIS Indices, Polkadot now makes up 27% of all ETP, while BTC accounts for about 50% of the product.

According to a 21Shares spokesperson, the company has no say in the addition or removal of assets from the HODL ETP. The spokesperson noted that this responsibility is reserved for MV Index Solutions.

21Shares noted that the addition of Polkadot to its Crypto Basket ETP makes it the “perfect timing to add single asset ETP to the already wide range of crypto ETPs” offered.

CEO of the company, Hany Rashwan, asserted that the company remains devoted to fulfilling the demand seen from institutional investors.

DOT is a next-generation blockchain protocol, linking several specialized blockchains into one network. A few days ago, the cryptocurrency surpassed Ripple (XRP) as the fourth-largest crypto based on market cap. However, XRP has since reclaimed the spot.

At press time, DOT is trading up by about 80% in its year-to-date high.


DOT – 4-Hour Chart

Key DOT Levels to Watch — February 5

Polkadot has been range-bound for the past few days between the 17.66 resistance to the 15.70 support. The cryptocurrency attempted another go at the 17.66 resistance some hours ago but failed to break above, once again.

That said, DOT could continue on its range-bound momentum in the coming days, considering that volatility is beginning to fade. Nonetheless, a fall below 14.80 seems very unlikely in the meantime, indicating that Polkadot could remain in its 17-day range between 18.90 and 14.80.

Meanwhile, our key resistance levels are at $17.66, $18.42, and $18.90. While our key support levels are at $16.44, $15.70, and $14.80.

Total Market Capitalization: $1.06 trillion
