The Channel Islands Securities Exchange (CISE) has admitted Global Advisors Investment Fund plc (GABI) to its Official List in what is believed to be the first regulated bitcoin fund listing on any exchange globally.
GABI was launched in 2014 as the world's first regulated bitcoin fund when it received certification as an Expert Fund from Jersey's financial services regulator, the Jersey Financial Services Commission.
Its listing on the CISE means that it joins over 2,000 listed securities on the Exchange, which has a combined market capitalization of over GBP300bn (USD371bn). It is the first digital asset-related listing on the Exchange.
