The Swiss stock exchange has listed it’s first crypto-currency exchange traded product (ETP).  Basically, this is a sort of mutual fund of crypto-currencies containing a balanced portfolio of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and others.  ETPs and ETFs (exchange traded funds) give investors ways to get into crypto-currency investing using a brokerage account they may already have instead of jumping through the hoops to set up accounts at crypto-currency exchanges like Coinbase or buy directly.  While these investors don’t actually hold the crypto-currencies and can’t use them as currencies, it does broaden the base of people who can invest in the markets.
