Updated: Jul 5

Hong Kong's Dual Champions of Virtual Asset ETFs


Hong Kong, July 05, 2024 - Yesterday, the Bosera HashKey Virtual Asset ETFs achieved a historic breakthrough, with their total assets under management (AUM) surpassing US$110 million for the first time. The Bosera HashKey Ether ETF (3009.HK) has maintained a stable position with over 6,000 ETH since May 7, continuing to lead the market. Close behind, the Bosera HashKey Bitcoin ETF (3008.HK) also achieved impressive growth, with a management scale exceeding US$90 million. This growth has driven the total AUM of Bosera HashKey Virtual Asset ETFs to a record high, solidifying their top position in the Asian market.


Since 2015, the HashKey founding team has been deeply involved in the global blockchain and crypto ecosystem. As one of the few forward-thinking institutional investors globally, HashKey not only funded the Ethereum Foundation in its early days but also helped the Ethereum ecosystem flourish in the Asia-Pacific region. Being one of the earliest institutional investors in Ethereum, HashKey has gained a significant first-mover advantage in the convergence of traditional finance and Web3.


HashKey Capital, a part of HashKey Group, was formally established in 2018. With a strong emphasis on regulation and compliance, it rapidly rose to become a leading venture capital fund in Asia. HashKey Capital has implemented a global strategy to promote resource sharing and local ecosystem development, significantly contributing to the advancement of global blockchain technology, industry development, and community evolution.


During the bear market of 2022, HashKey Capital successfully raised a US$500 million VC fund III, injecting new vitality into the Web3 community. Over the past six years, driven by investment and research, the company has invested in over 600 blockchain projects, fostering the growth of the global blockchain ecosystem.


HashKey Capital has also set new standards for compliance within the Web3 industry, acting as a bridge between the crypto and traditional finance worlds. In 2022, HashKey Capital Limited received a Type 9 licence uplift in Hong Kong, and in 2023, HashKey Capital Singapore Pte Ltd obtained the Capital Markets Services licence for Fund Management in Singapore. This was followed by an upgrade of HashKey Capital Limited’s Type 9 license in Hong Kong and the approval of the Type 4 license this year, making HashKey Capital the first firm to offer both crypto asset management and advisory services to both professional and retail investors. Pending future regulatory approvals, HashKey Capital intends to expand its business lines to market and distribute virtual asset-related private funds and derivatives to professional investors.


In terms of secondary market product development, HashKey Capital launched its first actively managed virtual asset liquid fund in September 2023, marking the emergence of a comprehensive product suite in Web3 asset management. In January 2024, the company released three major indices in collaboration with FTSE Russell, a leading global provider of index and benchmark solutions, to track global digital assets. Continuing this momentum, in April 2024, HashKey Capital partnered with Bosera International to launch the Bosera HashKey Bitcoin ETF (3008.HK) and Ether ETF (3009.HK), successfully listing them on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. This successfully brought crypto assets into the mainstream financial market.


The success of crypto asset spot ETFs is inseparable from the ecosystem that continuously empowers them. After 6 years of dedicated efforts, HashKey Capital has played a pivotal role in driving blockchain technology and crypto assets towards large-scale application and mainstream adoption. Throughout this journey, it has established deep strategic partnerships with a diverse network of investors, including traditional financial institutions, sovereign funds, multinational conglomerates, renowned family offices, and crypto-native investors. By leveraging profound insights into investor needs and cutting-edge knowledge of the Web3 industry, the Bosera HashKey Virtual Asset ETFs have not only secured a firm foothold in a highly competitive market but also achieved steady growth in asset management scale. Amidst stronger collaborative efforts and continuous market development, the Bosera HashKey Virtual Asset ETFs will create more value for investors and play an increasingly significant role in the global crypto asset space.


In the Bosera HashKey ETF ecosystem, Bosera International and HashKey Exchange, a subsidiary of HashKey Group, serve as the two pivotal partners driving the product's launch and market expansion. Bosera International, a veteran in asset management in Asia, offers traditional investors a gateway to access virtual assets. Meanwhile, HashKey Exchange, Hong Kong's first regulated virtual asset trading platform, provides robust infrastructure necessary for trade execution and liquidity of the Bosera HashKey ETFs.


Moreover, the thriving development of ETFs is driven by the active participation of regulators and industry leaders. The Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited (HKEX), the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC) and Hong Kong Legislative Council members, Duncan Chiu and Johnny Ng have provided invaluable guidance and insight to the industry on the development of regulatory compliance for virtual asset ETFs.


Looking ahead, HashKey Capital remains committed to driving financial innovation and fostering Web3 compliance. We will expand investor access to diverse investment opportunities while integrating the Web3 ecosystem more deeply into mainstream financial markets, aiming for broader adoption and recognition.
