Bitcoin and Ethereum
Bitcoin, ether and Bitcoin and Ether Futures Contracts are a relatively new asset class and are subject to unique and substantial risks, including the risk that the value of the Fund’s investments could decline rapidly, including to zero. Bitcoin, ether and Bitcoin and Ether Futures Contracts have historically been more volatile than traditional asset classes. You should be prepared to lose your entire investment.

The value of the Fund’s investments in Bitcoin and Ether Futures Contracts and other instruments that provide exposure to bitcoin, ether and Bitcoin and Ether Futures Contracts – and therefore the value of an investment in the Fund – could decline significantly and without warning, including to zero. The value of ether and bitcoin has been, and may continue to be, substantially dependent on speculation, such that trading and investing in these crypto assets generally may not be based on fundamental analysis. In addition, the price of bitcoin and ether has been highly correlated, even during periods of volatility, with ether tending to exhibit more pronounced rises and falls. If you are not prepared to accept significant and unexpected changes in the value of the Fund and the possibility that you could lose your entire investment in the Fund you should not invest in the Fund. The price and performance of cryptocurrency futures and cryptocurrency-linked instruments or assets should be expected to differ from the current “spot” prices (the prices at which the cryptocurrency can be purchased immediately) of those same currencies. These differences could be significant. Cryptocurrency futures are subject to costs, margin requirements, collateral requirements, and other limits that may negatively impact their performance or the performance of a investment vehicle which utilizes them. Cryptocurrencies are largely unregulated and cryptocurrency-linked investments may be more susceptible to fraud and manipulation than more regulated investments. Cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency futures are subject to rapid price swings including as a result of actions and statements by influencers and the media, changes in the supply and demand for the cryptocurrency or their futures, and other factors. If a fund’s ability to obtain exposure to cryptocurrency-linked investments consistent with their investment objectives is disrupted for any reason, including as a result of a lack of liquidity, volatility, or a disruption in the cryptocurrency or cryptocurrency futures market, or as a result of margin requirements, position limits, or other conditions, factors, or limitations of a particular fund, the fund may not be able to achieve its investment objective and may experience significant losses.
