Vaneck Bitcoin trust has chosen Gemini to be the custodian of their Bitcoin

The Vaneck Bitcoin trust is an exchange-traded fund. Tyler Winklevoss tweets,” Vaneck Bitcoin Trust honored us by choosing Gemini to be the custodian of their Bitcoin.”

New Bitcoin ETF proposal

Vaneck files a new Bitcoin ETF proposal with SEC under the new administration. Initially, Vaneck successfully launched a Bitcoin exchange-traded product in Europe. After the successful launch, Vaneck has now filed a new proposal for a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Jay Clayton, the former chairman of SEC, never approved the Bitcoin ETF. However, Clayton has resigned from the post. Hence changes are coming from the incoming Biden administration.

Gemini trust company

Moreover, Gemini trust company LLC is the custodian of the Vaneck Bitcoin trust. Hence, Gemini will hold all of Vaneck’s trust in Bitcoin on its behalf. However, the Trust is barring the liquidation or extraordinary circumstances as it doesn’t intend on purchasing or selling Bitcoin directly.

But the sponsor can sell Bitcoin to pay certain expenses, which the Bitcoin Custodian may facilitate.

Securities and Exchange Commission

Moreover, the Securities and Exchange Commission registered the Vaneck’s Trust shares offering under the securities act of 1933. In addition, the offering is intended to be a continuous one.

It is not expected to terminate until all of the registered shares have been sold or 3 years from the day of the original offering, whichever is earlier. However, the 1933 act has to permit the extension by the applicable rules.
