The benefit of an ETF

The benefit of an ETF

ETF applications in the crypto and DeFi space has exploded. And the SEC has yet to approve any of it. ETFs provide a lot of benefits that traditional crypto investing is unable to provide. This includes tax benefits as ETFs are a government-approved investment and falls under a specific tax regime, while crypto doesn’t have a tax bracket in particular. Then there is also the fact that an ETF offers a very good diversification of one’s portfolio. For example, if someone wants to invest in DeFi but not just in one token but the entire sector, they can go for a DeFi ETF.

ETFs also brings a lot of investment from the common masses. This is because for tech-forward people, going on exchanges and buying crypto seems no big deal, but that’s not the case with everyone. In fact, a lot of people in the US will surely prefer an ETF over direct buying. And finally, since a company manages an ETF, there is a very low chance that you’ll lose any shares or your portfolio, which can be the case with direct crypto investments.
