If we talk about the strength of interest, then on the first dayof trades, the fund increased from the initial $ 20 million to $ 570 million, and the value of the shares increased by 5%. According to ProShares CEO Michael Sapir, the increased interest in the fund is associated with the ability to invest in Bitcoin for those who have a brokerage account for trading stock instruments and who fear the difficulties of creating a cryptocurrency wallet.
