“We believe Web3 represents the future of the internet and is a further indication of the possibilities offered through blockchain technology,” said Marcelo Sampaio, co-founder and CEO at Hashdex. “The WEB311 ETF not only provides exposure to the smart contract platforms underpinning Web3, but serves as an accessible and unique way to invest in projects that will be the main engine of the internet of the future.”

Developed in partnership with CF Benchmarks, one of the leading global providers of digital asset market indices, WEB311 will replicate the “CF Web 3.0 Smart Contract Platforms Index”. The Index allocates to digital assets native to smart contract blockchains, with an initial composition of seven large digital assets: Ethereum (22.5%); Cardano (22.5%); Solana (22.1%); Polkadot (19.5%); Algorand (8.8%); Tezos (3.5%); and Cosmos (1.1%).

“CF Benchmarks is immensely proud its Web 3.0 Smart Contract Platforms Index will be replicated by the world’s first ETF dedicated to Smart Contract Blockchain Assets – the ground-breaking WEB311 ETF. Hot on the heels of the DEFI11 ETF, this launch is further proof of growing investor demand for regulated exposure to specific segments of the fast-maturing blockchain economy, demonstrating how our partners at Hashdex are committed to delivering innovation for both institutional and individual investors,” said Sui Chung, CEO of CF Benchmarks.
