In addition, there is no assurance that bitcoin will maintain its value over the long-term. The value of bitcoin is subject to risks related to its usage. Even if growth in bitcoin adoption occurs in the near or medium-term, there is no assurance that bitcoin usage will continue to grow over the long-term.
A contraction in use of bitcoin may result in increased volatility or a reduction in the price of bitcoin, which would adversely impact the value of the Shares. Both domestic and foreign regulators and governments have focused on regulation of bitcoin. In the United States, bitcoin is regulated by both federal and state authorities, depending on the context of its usage.
Bitcoin market disruptions and resulting governmental interventions are unpredictable, and may make bitcoin illegal altogether. Future foreign regulations and directives may conflict with those in the United States, and such regulatory actions may restrict or make bitcoin illegal in foreign jurisdictions. Future regulations and directives in regulation may impact the demand for bitcoin, and may also affect the ability of bitcoin exchanges to operate and for other market participants to enter into bitcoin transactions.
To the extent that future regulatory actions or policies limit or restrict bitcoin usage, bitcoin trading or the ability to convert bitcoin to government currencies, the demand for bitcoin may be reduced, which may adversely affect investment in the Shares.
Regulation of bitcoin continues to evolve, the ultimate impact of which remains unclear and may adversely affect, among other things, the availability, value or performance of bitcoin and, thus, the bitcoin futures contracts, swap contracts and other derivatives in which the Fund invests.
Moreover, in addition to exposing the. Although there continues to be uncertainty about the full impact of these and other regulatory changes, it is the case that the Fund may be subject to a more complex regulatory framework, and incur additional costs to comply with new requirements as well as to monitor for compliance with any new requirements going forward. If entities engaged in bitcoin mining choose not to hold the newly mined bitcoin, and, instead, make them available for sale, there can be downward pressure on the price of bitcoin which could negatively affect an investment in the Fund.
A bitcoin mining operation may be more likely to sell a higher percentage of its newly created bitcoin, and more rapidly so, if it is operating at a low profit margin, thus reducing the price of bitcoin. Lower bitcoin prices may result in further tightening of profit margins for miners and worsening profitability, thereby potentially causing even further selling pressure.
Decreasing profit margins and increasing sales of newly mined bitcoin could result in a reduction in the price of bitcoin, which could adversely impact an investment in the Fund. Bitcoin exchanges operate websites on which users can trade bitcoin for U. Trades on bitcoin exchanges are unrelated to transfers of bitcoin between users via the Bitcoin Network.
To sell bitcoin on a bitcoin exchange, a user will transfer bitcoin using the Bitcoin Network from him or herself to the bitcoin exchange. Conversely, to buy bitcoin on a bitcoin exchange, a user will transfer U. After completing the transfer of bitcoin or U. Bitcoin exchanges are an important part of the Bitcoin industry.
Bitcoin exchanges have a limited history. Since , several bitcoin exchanges have been closed or experienced disruptions due to fraud, failure, security breaches or distributed denial of service attacks. In many of these instances, the customers of such exchanges were not compensated or made whole for the partial or complete losses of their funds held at the exchanges. In , the largest bitcoin exchange at the time, Mt. Bitcoin exchanges are also appealing targets for hackers and malware.
In August , Bitfinex, a bitcoin exchange located in Hong Kong,. The potential for instability of bitcoin exchanges and the closure or temporary shutdown of exchanges due to fraud, business failure, hackers, DDoS or malware, or government-mandated regulation may reduce confidence in Bitcoin, which may result in greater volatility in bitcoin.
This first-to-market advantage is driven in large part by having the largest user base and the largest combined mining power in use to secure the blockchain and transaction verification system. It is possible that a digital asset other than bitcoin could have features that make it more desirable to a material portion of the digital asset user base, resulting in a reduction in demand for bitcoin, which could have a negative impact on the price of bitcoin and adversely affect an investment in the Fund.
Bitcoin also enjoys significantly greater acceptance and usage than other digital asset networks in the retail and commercial marketplace, due in large part to the relatively well-funded efforts of payment processing companies including BitPay and Coinbase. Despite the marked first-mover advantage of the Bitcoin Network over other digital assets, it is possible that an altcoin i. As of August 9, , according to CoinMarketCap. An acute cessation of mining operations would reduce.
Reductions in processing power could result in material, though temporary, delays in transaction confirmation time. Any reduction in confidence in the transaction verification process or mining processing power may adversely impact the price of bitcoin.
Furthermore, the block reward will decrease over time as a function of the bitcoin-generating algorithm. In the summer of , the block reward will reduce from As the block reward continues to decrease over time, the mining incentive structure will transition to a higher reliance on transaction verification fees in order to incentivize miners to continue to dedicate processing power to the blockchain.
If transaction verification fees become too high, the marketplace may be reluctant to use bitcoin. Decreased demand for bitcoin may adversely affect its price, which may adversely affect an investment in the Fund. A small group of individuals contribute to the Bitcoin Core project. However, bitcoin is an open source project and, although there is an influential group of contributors in the Bitcoin community, there is no designated developer or group of developers who formally control the Bitcoin Network.
Any individual can download the Bitcoin Network software and make any desired modifications, which are proposed to users and miners on the Bitcoin Network through modifications typically posted to the Bitcoin development forum. When a modification is introduced and a substantial majority of users and miners consent to the modification, the change is implemented and the Bitcoin Network remains uninterrupted. Additionally, a fork could be introduced by an unintentional, unanticipated software flaw in the multiple versions of otherwise compatible software users run.
Although several chain forks have been addressed by community-led efforts to merge the two chains, such. It is possible, however, that a substantial number of Bitcoin users and miners could adopt an incompatible version of Bitcoin while resisting community-led efforts to merge the two chains. This would result in a permanent fork. Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash now operate on separate, independent blockchains. Although the Bitcoin Network remained unchanged after the fork, it is unclear how such actions will affect the long term viability of bitcoin and, accordingly, may adversely affect an investment in the Fund.
As long as the malicious actor enjoys this majority it may be able to double-spend its own bitcoin i. If such a scenario were to occur, it could adversely affect an investment in the Fund. A malicious actor could also attempt to flood the pool of unconfirmed transactions with tens of thousands of transactions in an effort to significantly slow the confirmation of legitimate transactions across the Bitcoin Network.
Such a delay, if sustained for extended periods of time, could negatively impact the secondary market price of bitcoin. These or any other form of attack on the Bitcoin Network could adversely affect an investment in the Fund. Third parties may assert intellectual property claims relating to the holding and transfer of digital assets and their source code.
Additionally, a meritorious intellectual property claim could prevent end-users from accessing the Bitcoin Network or holding or transferring their bitcoin. As a result, an intellectual property claim could adversely affect an investment in the Fund. The Fund will compete with direct investments in bitcoin and other potential financial vehicles, possibly including securities backed by or linked to bitcoin and digital asset exchange traded products that are similar to the Fund or that focus on other digital assets.
A significant disruption of internet connectivity affecting large numbers of users or geographic areas could impede the functionality of the Bitcoin Network and adversely affect the Fund. In addition, certain features of the Bitcoin Network, such as decentralization, open source protocol, and reliance on peer-to-peer connectively, may increase the risk of fraud or cyber-attack by potentially reducing the likelihood of a coordinated response.
Volatility Risk — Frequent and significant short-term price movements of bitcoin, and thus Bitcoin Futures Contracts, could adversely impact the performance of the Fund. For example, because of the low margin deposits required, futures trading involves an extremely high degree of leverage and as a result, a relatively small price movement in Bitcoin Futures Contracts may result in immediate and substantial losses to the Fund.
The use of derivatives is a highly specialized activity that involves investment techniques and risks different from those associated with ordinary portfolio securities transactions. The use of derivatives may result in larger losses or smaller gains than directly investing in securities. Investments in such derivatives may generally be subject to market risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate over time and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
When the Fund uses derivatives, there may be imperfect correlation between the value of the reference assets and the derivative, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective. Because derivatives often require only a limited initial investment, the use of derivatives may expose the Fund to losses in excess of those amounts initially invested. Swap agreements are entered into primarily with major global financial institutions for a specified period which may range from one day to more than one year.
In a standard swap transaction, two parties agree to exchange the return or differentials in rates of return earned or realized on particular predetermined reference assets or underlying securities or instruments. The gross return to be exchanged or swapped between the parties is calculated based on a notional amount or.
Swaps are subject to counterparty, valuation and leveraging risks. This may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective, even if the underlying reference asset reverses all or a portion of its movement. Futures contracts are typically exchange-traded contracts that call for the future delivery of an asset at a certain price and date, or cash settlement of the terms of the contract. There may be an imperfect correlation between the changes in market value of the securities held by the Fund and the prices of futures contracts.
There may not be a liquid secondary market for the futures contracts. In addition, there is a risk that the Fund may not be able to enter into a closing transaction due to an illiquid market. Exchanges may also limit the number of positions that can be held or controlled by the Fund or the Adviser, thus limiting the ability of the Fund to implement its investment strategy.
Futures markets are highly volatile and the use of futures may increase the volatility of the Fund. Futures are also subject to leverage and liquidity risks. Leverage Risk — To achieve its investment objective, the Fund will make investments in derivative instruments, such as futures contracts, options and swap agreements.
These derivatives provide the economic effect of financial leverage by creating additional investment exposure, as well as the potential for greater loss. In addition, leverage may involve the creation of a liability that requires the Fund to pay interest. Counterparty Risk — The Fund will invest in financial instruments involving third parties i.
Due to the use of these financial instruments, the Fund is exposed to the risk that a counterparty may be unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations or may fail to return holdings that are subject to the agreement with the counterparty. If the counterparty or its affiliate becomes insolvent, bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, the Fund may not receive the full amount it is entitled to receive.
The Fund may also not be able to exercise remedies, such as the termination of transactions, netting of obligations and realization on collateral, could be stayed or eliminated under special resolutions adopted in the United States, the European Union and various other jurisdictions. Such regimes provide government authorities with broad authority to intervene when a financial institution is experiencing financial difficulty.
If a counterparty becomes insolvent, bankrupt or fails to perform its obligations, the value of an investment held by the Fund may decline. The Fund does not specifically limit its counterparty risk with respect to any single counterparty. Further, there is a risk that no suitable counterparties are willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its investment objective.
Cash Transaction Risk - Unlike most ETFs, the Fund currently intends to effect creations and redemptions principally for cash, rather than principally for in-kind securities, because of the nature of the financial instruments held by the Fund. As such, investments in Shares may be less tax efficient than investments in conventional ETFs and may incur additional brokerage costs related to buying and selling securities to achieve its investment objective.
As a shareholder, the Fund must rely on the investment company or ETF to achieve its investment objective. In addition, because shares of closed-end investment companies and ETFs are listed on national stock exchanges and are traded like stocks on an exchange, their shares potentially may trade at a discount or a premium.
Investments in such shares may be subject to brokerage and other trading costs, which could result in greater expenses to the Fund. Since the Subsidiary is organized under the law of the Cayman Islands and is not registered with the SEC under the Investment Company Act of , as amended, the Fund will not receive all of the protections offered to shareholders of registered investment companies.
Subsidiary to operate as intended, which may negatively affect the Fund and its shareholders. Margin Call Risk — Margin requirements are computed by a commodity broker and may be computed after hours or when the futures exchanges on which the Bitcoin Futures Contracts typically trade is closed. When the market value of a particular open futures contract changes to the point where the margin on deposit does not satisfy maintenance margin requirements, a margin call is made by the commodity broker.
The Subsidiary will attempt to meet a margin call with available cash and cash equivalents, however, if the Subsidiary does not have a sufficient amount of cash or cash equivalents to satisfy the margin call, the Subsidiary will be required to liquidate all or a portion of its holdings of Bitcoin Futures Contracts. Margin calls may be accompanied by periods of pronounced market volatility and low liquidity which may exacerbate losses to the Subsidiary and therefore the Fund.
Additionally, the exchange which issues the Bitcoin Futures Market may increase the margin required for a Bitcoin Futures Contract in the future which may negatively impact the Subsidiary and thus the Fund. In the event of default, the Fund could experience lengthy delays in recovering some or all of its assets and may not see any recovery at all. Registration as a commodity pool subjects the registrant to additional laws, regulations and enforcement policies, all of which may potentially increase compliance costs and may affect the operations and financial performance of the Fund or the Subsidiary.
Such actions may subject the Fund to substantial losses. In addition, exchange traded notes are unsecured debt of the issuer and would lose value if the issuer goes bankrupt. Government Securities Risk — A security backed by the U. Treasury or the full faith and credit of the United States is guaranteed only as to the timely payment of interest and principal when held to maturity.
The market prices for such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate. In addition, because many types of U. For example, the value of fixed-income securities generally decrease when interest rates rise. Also, investments in fixed-income securities with longer maturities fluctuate more in response to interest rate changes.
Recent events in the fixed-income market may expose the Fund to heightened interest rate risk and volatility. Failure to qualify as a RIC could subject the Fund to adverse tax consequences, including a federal income tax on its net income as regular corporate rates, as well as a tax to shareholders on such income when distributed as an ordinary dividend.
Based on the principles underlying private letter rulings previously issued to other taxpayers, the Fund intends to treat its income from the Subsidiary as qualifying income without any such ruling from the IRS. In such circumstances, the Fund may be unable to rebalance.
Investment Risk — An investment in the Fund is not a deposit in a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. When you sell your Shares, they could be worth less than what you paid for them. Liquidity Risk — Some securities held by the Fund may be difficult to sell or illiquid, particularly during times of market turmoil.
Markets for securities or financial instruments could be disrupted by a number of events, including but not limited to, an economic crisis, natural disasters, new legislation or regulatory changes inside or outside the United States. Illiquid securities also may be difficult to value.
Such a situation may prevent the Fund from limiting losses, realizing gains or achieving a high correlation with the Bitcoin Futures Contracts, thus materially affecting Fund performance. Market Risk — The Fund is subject to market risks that can affect the value of its Shares.
These risks include political, regulatory, market and economic developments, including developments that impact specific economic sectors, industries or segments of the market. Turbulence in financial markets and reduced liquidity in equity, credit and fixed income markets may negatively affect many issuers worldwide, which could have an adverse effect on the Fund. Money Market Instrument Risk — The Fund may use a variety of money market instruments for cash management purposes, including money market funds, depositary accounts and repurchase agreements.
Money market funds may be subject to credit risk with respect to the short-term debt instruments in which they invest. Depository accounts may be subject to credit risk with respect to the financial institution in which the depository account is held. Repurchase agreements are contracts in which a seller of securities agrees to buy the securities back at a specified time and price.
Repurchase agreements may be subject to market and credit risk related to the collateral securing the repurchase agreement. There is no guarantee that money market instruments will maintain a stable value, and they may lose money. Non-Diversification Risk — The Fund is non-diversified, which means it invests a high percentage of its assets in a limited number of securities. Regulatory Risk — The Fund is subject to the risk that a change in U.
Special Risks of Exchange-Traded Funds. Authorized Participants Concentration Risk. The Fund may have a limited number of financial institutions that may act as Authorized Participants. Market Price Variance Risk. Shares of the Fund are listed for trading on NYSE Arca and can be bought and sold in the secondary market at market prices rather than at net asset value. Shareholders that purchase or sell Shares on the secondary market may trade Shares at a price greater than net asset value a premium or less than net asset value a discount.
The Adviser cannot predict whether Shares will trade above, below or at net asset value. Given the fact that Shares can be created and redeemed in creation units, the Adviser believes that large discounts or premiums to the net asset value of Shares should not be sustained. Investors purchasing and selling Shares in the secondary market may not experience investment results consistent with those experienced by those creating and redeeming directly with the Fund.
There is no guarantee that an active secondary market will develop for Shares of the Fund. Trading Issues. Trading in Shares on an exchange may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of that exchange, make trading in Shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility or other reasons.
There can be no assurance that Shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the exchange on which they trade, and the listing requirements may be amended from time to time. Fund Performance. No prior investment performance is provided for the Fund because it had not commenced operations prior to the date of this Prospectus. Upon commencement of operations,. Investment Adviser. Portfolio Managers.
Purchase and Sale of Fund Shares. Retail investors may only purchase and sell Shares on a national securities exchange through a broker-dealer and may incur brokerage costs. Because the Shares trade at market prices rather than net asset value, Shares may trade at a price greater than net asset value premium or less than net asset value discount. Tax Information. The Fund intends to make distributions that may be taxed as ordinary income or long-term capital gains. Those distributions will be subject to federal income tax and may also be subject to state and local taxes, unless you are investing through a tax-deferred arrangement, such as a k plan or an individual retirement account.
Distributions or investments made through tax-deferred arrangements may be taxed later upon withdrawal. Distributions by the Fund may be significantly higher than those of most other ETFs. These payments may create a conflict of interest by influencing the broker-dealer or other financial intermediary and your salesperson to recommend the Fund over another investment. Overview of the Fund. Unlike conventional mutual funds, Shares are not individually redeemable securities.
Creation Units of the Fund are issued and redeemed primarily in cash. As a result, retail investors generally will not be able to purchase or redeem Shares directly from, or with, the Fund. Most retail investors will purchase or sell Shares in the secondary market with through a broker. The Fund will generally seek to achieve its investment objective by investing in, under normal circumstances, in bitcoin futures contracts and swaps on bitcoin futures contracts.
The Fund will seek excess return above the Bitcoin Futures Contracts through the active management of a portfolio of Treasury bills, other government securities, money market funds, cash, other short-term bond funds, highly rated corporate or other non-government fixed-income securities, with maturities of up to 12 months.
When viewed on a consolidated basis, the Subsidiary is subject to the same investment restrictions and limitations, and follows the same compliance policies and procedures, as the Fund. The Fund may invest directly in certain fixed-income securities that include U.
This limitation is imposed by the Internal Revenue Code of , as amended. The Subsidiary, which is organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands, is wholly owned and controlled by the Fund. The Fund invests in the Subsidiary in order to gain exposure to the investment returns of the bitcoin market within the limitations of the federal tax law requirements applicable to regulated investment companies.
The Fund is the sole shareholder of the Subsidiary and does not expect shares of the Subsidiary to be offered or sold to other investors. The Fund is not a complete investment program. Changes in Investment Objective. Additional Information Regarding Principal Risks. An investment in the Fund entails risks. The Fund could lose money, or its performance could trail that of other investment alternatives. Rafferty cannot guarantee that the Fund will achieve its investment objective.
It is important that investors closely review and understand these risks before making an investment in the Fund. Risks of investing in the Fund are described below. Futures Strategy Risk. In the event of a prolonged period of contango, and absent the impact of rising or falling. Bitcoin Futures Market Risk. Unlike the futures market for traditional physical commodities, the market for exchange-traded bitcoin futures contracts has a limited trading history and operational experience and may be riskier, less liquid, more volatile and more vulnerable to economic, market and industry changes than more established futures markets.
As a result, the price of bitcoin may fluctuate significantly during periods when Bitcoin Futures Contracts trading is unavailable. Gap Risk. The Fund is subject to the risk that the price of bitcoin may change sharply while the equity markets on which the Shares are traded are closed. This risk may be higher because of the nature of bitcoin, the underlying asset of the bitcoin futures contracts, which is trade on exchange markets and over the counter 24 hours a day.
Bitcoin Investing Risk. Because the value of the futures and other derivatives purchased and sold by the Fund is based on the value of bitcoin, the Fund is exposed to risks associated with bitcoin. Investing in bitcoin is speculative and there is no assurance that usage of bitcoin will continue to grow.
The adoption of bitcoin will require growth in its usage and in the blockchain, for various applications. Adoption of bitcoin will also require an accommodating regulatory environment. A lack of expansion in usage of bitcoin and the blockchain could adversely affect an investment in the Shares. If entities engaged in bitcoin mining choose not to hold the newly mined bitcoin, and, instead, make them available for sale, there can be downward pressure on the price of bitcoin, which could negatively affect an investment in the Fund.
Despite the marked first-mover advantage of the Bitcoin Network over other digital assets, it is possible that an. An acute cessation of mining operations would reduce the collective processing power on the blockchain, which would adversely affect the transaction verification process by temporarily decreasing the speed at which blocks are added to the blockchain and make the blockchain more vulnerable to a malicious actor obtaining control in excess of 50 percent of the processing power on the blockchain.
However, bitcoin is an open source project and, although there is an. These or any other form of attack on. The Fund will compete with direct investments in bitcoin and other potential financial vehicles, possibly including securities backed by or linked to bitcoin and digital asset exchange-traded products that are similar to the Fund or that focus on other digital assets. Swap Agreements. In a standard swap transaction, two parties agree to exchange the return or differentials in rates of return earned or realized on particular predetermined reference or underlying securities or instruments.
The gross return to be exchanged or swapped between the parties is calculated based on a notional amount or the return on or change in value of a particular dollar amount invested in a basket of securities representing a particular index. Total return swaps are subject to counterparty risk, which relates to credit risk of the counterparty and liquidity risk of the swaps themselves. Volatility Risk. Frequent and significant short-term price movements of bitcoin, and thus Bitcoin Futures Contracts, could adversely impact the performance of the Fund.
For example, because of the. Derivatives Risk. The Fund uses investment techniques, including investments in derivatives, such as swaps, futures and forward contracts, and options that may be considered aggressive. The use of derivatives may result in larger losses or smaller gains than investing in the underlying securities directly. Investments in these derivatives may generally be subject to market risks that cause their prices to fluctuate more than an investment directly in a security and may increase the volatility of the Fund.
The use of derivatives may expose the Fund to additional risks such as counterparty risk, liquidity risk and increased correlation risk. When the Fund uses derivatives, there may be imperfect correlation between the value of the underlying reference assets such as bitcoin or the Bitcoin Futures Contract and the derivative, which may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective. The Fund may use swaps on the Bitcoin Futures Contract.
This may prevent the Fund from achieving its investment objective particularly if the Bitcoin Futures Contract reverses all or a portion of its intraday move by the end of the day. The gross return to be exchanged or swapped between the parties is calculated based on a notional amount or the return on or change in value of a particular dollar amount invested in a reference asset. A futures contact is a contract to purchase or sell a particular security, or the cash value of an index, at a specified future date at a price agreed upon when the contract is made.
Under such contracts, no delivery of the actual securities is required. Rather, upon the expiration of the contract, settlement is made by exchanging cash in an amount equal to the difference between the contract price and the closing price of a security or index at expiration, net of the variation margin that was previously paid. Forward contracts are two-party contracts pursuant to which one party agrees to pay the counterparty a fixed price for an agreed upon amount of commodities, securities, or the cash value of the commodities, securities or the securities index, at an agreed upon date.
A forward currency contract is an obligation to buy or sell a specific currency at a future date, which may be any fixed number of days from the date of the contract agreed upon by the parties, at a price set at the time of the contract. An option is a contract that gives the purchaser holder of the option, in return for a premium, the right to buy from call or sell to put the seller writer of the option the security or currency underlying the option at a specified exercise price at any time during the term of the option normally not exceeding nine months.
The writer of an option has the obligation upon exercise of the option to deliver the underlying security or currency upon payment of the exercise price or to pay the exercise price upon delivery of the underlying security or currency. Upon exercise of the option by the holder, the contract market clearing house establishes a corresponding short position for the writer of the option, in the case of a call option, or a corresponding long position, in the case of a put option.
Leverage Risk. To achieve its investment objective, the Fund will make investments in derivative instruments, such as futures contracts, options and swap agreements. Counterparty Risk. Counterparty risk is the risk that a counterparty is unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meet its contractual obligations with respect to the amount the Fund expects to receive from counterparties to financial instruments.
The Fund generally structures the swap agreements entered into with counterparties such that either party can terminate the contract without penalty prior to the termination date. The Fund may be negatively impacted if a counterparty becomes bankrupt or otherwise fails to perform its obligations under such a contract.
If the counterparty becomes bankrupt or defaults on its payment obligations to the Fund, it may not receive the full amount it is entitled to receive. The Adviser considers factors such as counterparty credit rating. The Adviser regularly monitors the creditworthiness of each counterparty with which the Fund transacts.
The Fund generally enters into swap agreements or other financial instruments with major, global financial institutions and seeks to mitigate risks by generally requiring that the counterparties for the Fund agree to post collateral for the benefit of the Fund, marked to market daily, in an amount approximately equal to what the counterparty owes the Fund subject to certain minimum thresholds.
To the extent any such collateral is insufficient or there are delays in accessing the collateral, the Fund will be exposed to the risk described above. There is a risk that no suitable counterparties are willing to enter into, or continue to enter into, transactions with the Fund and, as a result, the Fund may not be able to achieve its investment objectives.
The Fund will not enter into any agreement involving a counterparty unless the Adviser believes that the other party to the transaction is creditworthy. Cash Transaction Risk. Unlike most ETFs, the Fund currently intends to effect creation and redemptions principally for cash, rather than principally for in-kind securities, because of the nature of the financial instruments held by the Fund.
As such, investment in the Fund may be less tax efficient than investment in a conventional ETF. ETFs generally are able to make in-kind redemptions and avoid being taxed on gains on the distributed portfolio securities at the fund level. Because the Fund currently intends to effect redemptions principally for cash, the Fund may be required to sell portfolio securities in order to obtain the cash needed to distribute redemption proceeds.
The Fund may recognize a capital gain on these sales that might not have been incurred if such Fund had made a redemption in-kind and this may decrease the tax efficiency of the Fund compared to ETFs that utilize an in-kind redemption process. Investment in the securities of other investment companies, including ETFs, may involve duplication of advisory fees and certain other expenses. In addition, because closed-end investment companies and ETFs are listed on national stock exchanges and are traded like stocks on an exchange, their shares potentially may trade at a discount or a premium.
Subsidiary Investment Risk. The Fund may invest in the Subsidiary. This limitation is pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code of , as amended, and is measured at each taxable year quarter-end. The Subsidiary, which is organized under the laws of the Cayman Islands, is wholly-owned and controlled by the Fund. The Fund will invest in its Subsidiary in order to gain exposure to the investment returns of the commodities markets within the limitations of the federal tax law requirements applicable to regulated investment companies.
To the extent applicable, the Subsidiary otherwise is subject to the same fundamental and non-fundamental investment restrictions as the Fund, and, in particular, to the same requirements relating to portfolio leverage, liquidity, and the timing and method of valuation of portfolio investments and Fund shares, described elsewhere in this Prospectus and in the SAI.
The Subsidiary is not registered with the SEC as an investment company under the Act, and is not subject to the investor protections of the Act. As an investor in the Subsidiary, the Fund does not have the same protections offered to shareholders of registered investment companies. If the laws of the Cayman Islands required the Subsidiary to pay.
Margin Call Risk. Margin requirements are computed by a commodity broker and may be computed after hours or when the futures exchanges on which the Bitcoin Futures Contracts typically trade are closed. Clearing Broker Risk. Commodity Pool Registration Risk. Under amended regulations promulgated by the U. The Adviser is registered as a commodity pool operator and will manage the Fund and the subsidiary in accordance with CFTC rules, as well as the rules that apply to registered investment companies, which includes registering the Fund and the subsidiary as commodity pools.
Registration as a commodity pool subjects the registrant to additional laws, regulations and enforcement policies, all of which may potentially increase compliance costs and may affect the operations and financial performance of the Fund and the subsidiary. Exchange-Traded Note Risk. Exchange-traded notes "ETNs" are subject to the credit risk of the issuer.
The value of an ETN will vary and will be. ETNs are unsecured debt of the issuer and would lose value if the issuer goes bankrupt. Government Securities Risk. A security backed by the U. Interest Rate Risk. Debt securities, and securities that provide exposure to debt securities, have varying levels of sensitivity to changes in interest rates. Interest rates across the U. Changes or volatility in interest rates may adversely affect the performance of the Fund. Securities with longer maturities can be more sensitive to interest rate changes.
In addition, short-term and long-term interest rates do not necessarily move in the same amount or the same direction. Short-term securities tend to react to changes in short-term interest rates, and long-term securities tend to react to changes in long-term interest rates.
The impact of an interest rate change may be significant for other asset classes as well, whether because of the impact of interest rates on economic activity or because of changes in the relative attractiveness of asset classes due to changes in interest rates. For instance, higher interest rates may make investments in debt securities more attractive, thus reducing investments in equities.
Commodity-Linked Derivatives Risk. The value of a commodity-linked derivative investment is typically based upon the price movements of a physical commodity such as heating oil, precious metals, livestock, or agricultural products , a commodity futures contract or commodity index, or some other readily measurable economic. The value of commodity-linked derivative instruments may be affected by changes in overall market movements, volatility of the underlying Bitcoin Futures Contracts, changes in interest rates, or factors affecting a particular industry or commodity, such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargoes, tariffs and international economic, political and regulatory developments.

Adverse Market Conditions Risk. The performance of the Fund is designed to correlate to the performance of the Bitcoin Futures Contracts.

Given the fact that Shares can be created and redeemed in creation units, the Adviser believes that large discounts or premiums to the NAV of Shares should not be sustained. Trading in Shares on the Exchange may be halted due to market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in Shares inadvisable, such as extraordinary market volatility or other reasons. There can be no assurance that Shares will continue to meet the listing requirements of the Exchange, and the listing requirements may be amended from time to time.
A Precautionary Note to Retail Investors. Your account information will be maintained by your broker, who will provide you with account statements, confirmations of your purchases and sales of Shares, and tax information.

Examples of Significant Events may include: 1 events that relate to a single issuer or to an entire market sector; 2 significant fluctuations in domestic or foreign markets; or 3 occurrences not tied directly to the securities markets, such as natural disasters, armed conflicts, or significant government actions. Fair value determinations are made in good faith in accordance with procedures adopted by the Board of Trustees.
In addition, the Fund may also fair value an instrument if trading in a particular instrument is halted and does not resume prior to the closing of the exchange or other market. Attempts to determine the fair value of securities introduce an element of subjectivity to the pricing of securities. As a result, the price of a security determined through fair valuation techniques may differ from the price quoted or published by other sources and may not accurately reflect the market value of the security when trading resumes.
If a reliable market quotation becomes available for a security formerly valued through fair valuation techniques, Rafferty compares the market quotation to the fair value price to evaluate the effectiveness of the Fund's fair valuation procedures and will use that market value in the next calculation of NAV.

A variable Transaction Fee based upon the value of each Creation Unit also is applicable to each purchase or redemption transaction.

How to Buy and Sell Shares. Most investors will buy and sell Shares of the Fund in secondary market transactions through brokers. Individual Shares of the Fund, once listed for trading on the Exchange, can be bought and sold throughout the trading day like other publicly traded securities. The Fund does not require any minimum investment in such secondary market transactions.
When buying or selling Shares through a broker, investors may incur customary brokerage commissions and charges, and may pay some or all of the spread between the bid and the offer prices in the secondary market. In addition, because secondary market transactions occur at market prices, investors may pay more than NAV when buying Shares, and receive less than NAV when selling Shares.
The Adviser may pay brokers and other financial intermediaries for educational training programs, the development of technology platforms and reporting systems or other administrative services related to the Fund. Share prices are reported in dollars and cents per Share. For information about acquiring or selling Shares through a secondary market purchase, please contact your broker. Book Entry.
