HSBC, Hong Kong’s largest bank, has made a groundbreaking move by allowing its customers to access Bitcoin and Ethereum Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) listed on the Hong Kong exchange. This marks a significant step towards cryptocurrency adoption within the Hong Kong financial market and signals the growing acceptance of digital currencies by traditional banking institutions. HSBC’s offering of crypto ETFs, including the CSOP Bitcoin Futures ETF, CSOP Ethereum Futures ETF, and Samsung Bitcoin Futures Active ETF, reflects the increasing interest among institutional investors in gaining regulated exposure to the volatile crypto market. The bank has also launched the Virtual Asset Investor Education Centre to ensure investor education and risk disclosure.
