BITI - Proshares Short Bitcoin Strategy -1X ETF

Proshares Short Bitcoin Strategy -1X ETF logo BITI (ProShares Short Bitcoin Strategy -1X ETF) is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) managed by ProShares Advisors LLC. The ETF seeks to provide investors with the inverse (opposite) daily return of the Bitcoin Futures Index, which is a benchmark that tracks the performance of bitcoin futures contracts listed on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.

This means that if the Bitcoin Futures Index falls by 1% on a given day, BITI should deliver a return of 1% in the opposite direction (before fees and expenses). However, if the index rises by 1%, BITI would be expected to deliver a loss of 1%.

As of September 2021, the BITI ETF had total net assets of around $80 million and was invested in a diversified portfolio of inverse derivative securities, primarily focused on bitcoin futures contracts. The fund's top holdings included inverse securities from companies such as ProShares, Invesco, and Rafferty Asset Management.
