Frequently asked questions

  • Are the Indices calculated by a third party?

    Yes. The composition of the three Bitpanda Crypto Indices are regulated by MarketVector Indexes, a subsidiary of investment management firm VanEck. MarketVector Indexes develops, monitors and markets these indices independently.

  • Which cryptocurrencies will my index invest in?

    Depending on which index you select, the Bitpanda Crypto Index invests in the leading cryptocurrencies based on their market capitalisation and liquidity, as defined by MarketVector Indexes, at the moment of investment. You can choose from our 8 indices: the BCI5, BCI10, BCI25, BCI DeFi Leaders, BCI Infrastructure Leaders, BCI Metaverse Leaders, BCI Smart Contract Leaders and BCI Meme Coin Leaders. Download the prospectus for more information, or scroll up for an overview of the Indices and the currencies they currently hold.

  • Can I buy and sell individual cryptocurrencies within my Index?

    No. It is not possible to buy or sell individual cryptocurrencies within your Index. You can, however, swap or sell your Crypto Index investment completely or in portions.

  • Does Bitpanda charge trading premiums to invest in a Crypto Index?

    Bitpanda trading premiums of 1.99% apply to every buy, sell or swap transaction within your Crypto Index. When your Crypto Index rebalances every month, a trading premium of 1.99% applies to the rebalanced amount, not to your entire portfolio. There are zero maintenance or custody fees.

  • Is the Bitpanda Crypto Index an ETF?

    No. Though at first glance, the Bitpanda Crypto Index might seem similar to a traditional stock market ETF, it is not in fact an ETF. Unlike an ETF, by investing in a Crypto Index you purchase the underlying assets directly. Our indices are not considered funds or separate assets (Sondervermögen), and are not traded on any exchanges.

  • What does "automatic rebalancing” mean?

    Once a month, your Crypto Index will be adjusted according to changes in the crypto market as well as data calculated and provided by MVIS, the Index division of VanEck. During this process, the weights of the various cryptocurrencies are reviewed and reshuffled. To reflect these changes in the market, we perform automatic buys and sells to optimise your portfolio and maintain your investment.

  • When will my Crypto Index rebalance?

    Generally, rebalancing will happen on the last trading day of the month.

  • Where can I find the prospectus?

    The prospectus, including further details on this product, the issuer and the relevant risks can be found here in German (audited version), with the respective first, second, third supplement, and forth supplement, and here in English, with the respective first, second and third supplement. Please be aware that only the offer in Austria is governed by this prospectus.

  • Why not buy the assets myself and create my own index?

    There are many reasons:

    • Convenience. Since each of our indices mirror the performance of the market and rebalance automatically, you always hold the most relevant cryptocurrencies and don't have to follow the markets closely. We do all the heavy lifting.

    • Diversification. More eggs, more baskets. Diversifying your investments means your exposure to market volatility decreases.

    • Trust. All indices are calculated and reviewed by MarketVector Indexes, a VanEck company.

    • Costs. Premiums only apply to changes in your portfolio. There are zero performance-related premiums or fees for assets under management.
