Stronghold requests permission for mining on burning tires

Ark Invest and 21Shares have filed bids to launch two exchange-traded funds (ETFs) based on Ethereum. A few weeks earlier, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rejected their joint application for a spot bitcoin ETF.
The SEC said in a statement that the companies plan to create two Ethereum ETFs, the ARK 21Shares Active Ethereum Futures ETF (ARKZ) and the ARK 21Shares Active Bitcoin Ethereum Strategy ETF (ARKY). The latter will consist of both Bitcoin and Ethereum futures.
According to the announcement, ARKZ will invest at least 25% of its holdings in Ethereum futures contracts, such as those traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

Our investment strategy involves providing deep liquidity crypto market making to the projects we invest in. This approach allows us to ensure continuous and substantial liquidity in exchanges. By doing so, we aim to increase market efficiency and reduce price volatility. We help to stabilize prices and reduce the bid-ask spread, which can lower transaction costs for traders. This usually attracts more traders to the markets, by making it easier and less risky to trade your token which can help to increase the overall liquidity and trading volumes both for the benefit of traders and issuers. However, we recognize that providing liquidity also comes with potential risks, which we carefully evaluate and manage as part of our investment decision-making process.
