As ETFs are regulated financial products, investing in a Bitcoin ETF provides investors with a safer and more familiar way to gain exposure to the potential growth of Bitcoin, while also being able to leverage the regulatory protections and transparency that come with traditional financial markets.
This makes Bitcoin more accessible and appealing to a wider range of investors, not just those comfortable with the nuances of markets.
