Exponential Bets Big on Bitcoin going Public in Canada—OSC approval confirms

A landmark ruling by the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) on October 30th will allow retail investors the opportunity to invest in The Bitcoin Fund (QBTC), which aims to list on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) before the end of 2019. This is the first time retail investors will have access to Bitcoin through traditional financial exchanges in North America.

Since the OSC approval we’ve been asked how we knew to invest heavily in 3iQ; the following answers that as well as why this approval is important to everyone, everywhere.
Why did Exponential invest in The Bitcoin Fund by 3iQ?

  • We invest in world-class innovators: We believe in 3iQ’s leadership team.
  • We have deep expertise in digital asset funds and regulation: After due diligence, we predicted the OSC approving the fund as a matter of integrity, since all OSC requirements had been met and exceeded.
  • We believe money and value exchange is evolving: Bitcoin is often referred to as “digital gold” because it has numerous advantages over physical gold as a store of value.
  • We believe in financial inclusion: The Bitcoin Fund is skipping Accredited Investors (only 4% of the population) and going public first, providing access to everyone, globally.
  • We believe in ease of access: Bitcoin has numerous barriers to entry - purchasing from unregulated foreign exchanges, complicated custody solutions, etc. - that have been resolved through The Bitcoin Fund.

We’re not the only ones that believe in 3iQ and The Bitcoin Fund. VanEck is a fellow investor in 3iQ. They have $49 billion in assets under management, much of which is in gold-related products, having created the first U.S. gold fund.

Overall, the approval of a cryptocurrency investment vehicle from a major government regulator is a significant step forward in the adoption of cryptocurrency worldwide and may pave the way for other jurisdictions to follow suit.

At Exponential, we believe in migrating capital to the new, open, digital economy as well as investing in founders who alleviate suffering and expand human potential. 3iQ perfectly embodies these two characteristics and we are proud to continue supporting them in their growth.
