Oct 26, 2021 | CoinTelegraph News | 0 comments

Valour Uniswap ETP, with UNI as the underlying asset, launches on the Boerse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG stock exchange.

Valour, a Zurich-based exchange-traded products (ETP) issuer, announced the launch of a fully-backed investment product to increase exposure to Uniswap decentralized exchange’s native token, UNI.

The UNI token serves as the underlying asset within the Valour Uniswap ETP offering available as a fully-backed passive investment product. The Uniswap ETP was launched on a European stock exchange named Boerse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange co-owner.

Valour CEO Diana Biggs highlighted the inaccessibility of blockchain-based investment products on traditional markets and stock exchanges. Speaking about Valour Uniswap ETP’s position in making DeFi investments available via mainstream investment channels, he said:

“Uniswap ETP will provide investors with the opportunity to gain exposure to areas of innovation, in particular to decentralized finance (DeFi).”

As of Oct. 25, Valour’s assets under management (AUM) offerings grew over 3033% in 2021, surpassing $290 million from trading on traditional stock exchanges. The Uniswap protocol passed $500 billion in total trading volume since Nov. 2018.
