Valour, a technology holding company and the first publicly traded company that combines traditional capital markets with decentralized finance, has announced the launch of its first physically backed digital asset product. The 1Valour Bitcoin Physical Carbon Neutral ETP (Exchange Traded Product) offers investors exposure to Bitcoin while supporting environmental goals and funding certified carbon removal and offset initiatives to neutralize the carbon footprint associated with Bitcoin.
The ETP, which is now available for purchase on the Frankfurter Wertpapierboerse XETRA, the largest exchange in Germany, provides investors with sustainable and climate-friendly exposure to Bitcoin at a low management fee of 1.49%. It is secured by physically stored digital assets regulated by custody providers.
Valour has partnered with Patch, a leading climate action infrastructure provider, to ensure that all carbon emissions linked to investments in the ETP are targeted for carbon neutral output. Patch selects high-integrity projects that prevent, remove, and sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, working with qualified and recognized organizations and standards.
Olivier Roussy Newton, CEO of Valour, emphasized the company’s commitment to promoting sustainable practices and contributing to a carbon-neutral crypto industry. Valour’s launch of its first carbon-neutral product on its new physically backed platform is a significant step towards this goal.
Valour offers a range of fully hedged digital asset ETPs with low to zero management fees, including products like Valour Uniswap, Cardano, Polkadot, Solana, and Binance. The company’s flagship products, Bitcoin Zero and Ethereum Zero, are the first fully hedged passive investment products with Bitcoin and Ethereum as underlying assets, and they are completely fee-free.
Valour’s mission is to expand investor access to Web3 technologies and the future of finance through regulated equity exchanges. With its innovative product offerings and focus on sustainability, Valour aims to provide retail and institutional investors with the tools to participate in the exciting digital asset ecosystem.
