Disclaimers

Investing involves risks. The loss of principal is possible. The Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses should be considered before investing. The Fund may not be suitable for all investors. The Fund’s prospectus contains this and other important information and can be found at this link: https://valkyrie-funds.com/btf/btf-prospectus/. Read it carefully before investing.

Bitcoin, Bitcoin Futures, Ether and Ether Futures are a relatively new asset class. They are subject to unique and substantial risks, and historically, have been subject to significant price volatility. The value of an investment in the Fund could decline significantly and without warning, including to zero. You should be prepared to lose your entire investment. The shares in the Fund will change in value, and you could lose money by investing in the Fund. The Fund may not achieve its investment objective.

Market Risk. The prices of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Futures, Ether and Ether Futures have historically been highly volatile. The value of the Fund’s investments in Bitcoin Futures, Ether Futures and other instruments that provide exposure to Bitcoin, Bitcoin Futures, Ether and Ether Futures – and therefore the value of an investment in the Fund – could decline significantly and without warning, including to zero. If you are not prepared to accept significant and unexpected changes in the value of the Fund and the possibility that you could lose your entire investment in the Fund, you should not invest in the Fund. The price and performance of cryptocurrency futures and cryptocurrency-linked instruments or assets should be expected to differ from the current “spot” prices (the prices at which the cryptocurrency can be purchased immediately) of those same currencies. These differences could be significant. Cryptocurrency futures are subject to costs, margin requirements, collateral requirements, and other limits that may negatively impact their performance or the performance of an investment vehicle which utilizes them. Cryptocurrencies are largely unregulated and cryptocurrency-linked investments may be more susceptible to fraud and manipulation than more regulated investments. Cryptocurrencies and cryptocurrency futures are subject to rapid price swings including as a result of actions and statements by influencers and the media, changes in the supply and demand for the cryptocurrency or their futures, and other factors. If a fund’s ability to obtain exposure to cryptocurrency-linked investments consistent with their investment objectives is disrupted for any reason, including as a result of a lack of liquidity, volatility, or a disruption in the cryptocurrency or cryptocurrency futures market, or as a result of margin requirements, position limits, or other conditions, factors, or limitations of a particular fund, the fund may not be able to achieve its investment objective and may experience significant losses.
