XBT Provider AB, a Swedish-based issuer of bitcoin-based ETNs announced today that now all clients with SIPP accounts and brokerage accounts held at Hargreaves Lansdown will have digital access to add bitcoin exposure to their portfolio by purchasing Europe’s only exchange-traded bitcoin notes which are issued by XBT Provider.
The two ETNs, Bitcoin Tracker One and Bitcoin Tracker Euro (COINXBT: SS, COINXBE: SS, respectively) listed on the NASDAQ OMX are now available for online purchasing via the UK’s number one investment platform for private investors.
“Buying the XBT provider ETN was extremely quick, all I had to do is place my order and click ‘deal,’ and I had bitcoin exposure in my SIPP within minutes,” noted Nigel Timperley a current Hargreaves Lansdown SIPP customer.
Clients who wish to add bitcoin to their tax-advantaged SIPP accounts now only need to login to their usual portal with Hargreaves Lansdown and search for: ‘XBT.’
By adding self-service, online dealing, the team at Hargreaves Lansdown is providing UK investors with professional and quick access to the bitcoin space in the UK and greater Europe. This is very exciting for any investors who have been thinking about buying bitcoin but did not want the hassle of security and regulation involved in buying bitcoin directly from exchanges. Now investors can quickly add bitcoin exposure to their portfolio via their brokerage account.
