In this episode of ETF Spotlight, I speak with David Bartosiak, Zacks Stock Strategist and Editor of the Zacks Blockchain Innovators Newsletter, about cryptocurrencies and blockchain-related stocks.

The price of bitcoin crashed around 65% in the last year and crypto-related ETFs slumped as investors dumped risky assets due to changes in the macro environment. The Viridi Bitcoin Miners ETF (RIGZ) lost 87% and was the worst performing ETF of 2022.

Crypto stocks have rebounded strongly as Bitcoin jumped around 40% this year. Crypto-related ETFs have been the top performers among equity ETFs year-to-date.

Valkyrie Bitcoin Miners ETF WGMI is up almost 100%, thanks to soaring stocks like

Bitfarms BITF and Argo Blockchain ARBK. NVIDIA NVDA and Advanced Micro Devices AMD are also among WGMI’s holdings.

The ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF BITO and Short Bitcoin Strategy ETF BITI offer long and short exposure to bitcoin-related returns using futures contracts that trade on regulated exchanges.

Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize many industries as it provides a secure way to record and verify transactions. The Amplify Transformational Data Sharing BLOK ETF invests in companies involved in the development or use of blockchain technologies.

Dave also likes Camtek CAMT and International Money Express IMXI, which he owns in the Blockchain Innovators wallet.
