Registered Exposure to Bitcoin

ARKB provides exposure to bitcoin which is kept in cold storage* by one of the largest crypto custodians, offering greater protection than custody options available to individual investors.

* Bitcoin cold storage refers to the practice of keeping bitcoins in offline environments to safeguard them from potential online threats of hacking and theft. Cold storage provides vital protection for both long-term holders and investors against the numerous risks posed by malicious actors online. By keeping bitcoin holdings entirely offline or "in cold storage", users limit potential attack vectors that could compromise funds.

Past performance does not guarantee future results. The performance data quoted represents past performance and current returns may be lower or higher. The investment return and principal will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares when redeemed may be worth more or less than the original cost. Extraordinary performance is attributable in part due to unusually favorable market conditions and may not be repeated or consistently achieved in the future. The Fund’s most recent month-end performance can be found in the fund documents section. Returns for less than one year are not annualized.

Net asset value (“NAV”) returns are based on the dollar value of a single share of the ETF, calculated using the value of the underlying assets of the ETF minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. The NAV of Shares is calculated each business day as of the close of regular trading on the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. (“Cboe), generally 4:00 pm Eastern time on each business day the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc is open for trading. Market returns are based on the trade price at which shares are bought and sold on the Cboe BZX Exvhange, Inc. using the last share trade. Market performance does not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times. Total Return reflects the reinvestment of distributions on ex-date for NAV returns and payment date for Market Price returns. The market price of the ETF’s shares may differ significantly from their NAV during periods of market volatility.

The Premium/Discount chart shows the difference between the daily market price of the Fund’s shares and the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”). The daily market price is calculated using the mid-point between the highest bid and the lowest offer on the listing exchange, as of the time that the Fund’s NAV is calculated (usually 4:00 pm Eastern time). The vertical axis of the chart shows the premium or discount of the Mid-Point price as a percentage of the NAV. The horizontal axis shows the number of trading days covered by the chart, and each bar in the chart demonstrates how many days the Fund traded within the given premium/discount range. The data presented in the chart and table above represent past performance and cannot be used to predict future results.
