TORONTOSept. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire/ – Valour Inc. (“Valour“), a subsidiary of DeFi Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “DeFi Technologies“) (NEO: DEFI) (GR: RMJ.F) (OTC: DEFTF) and issuer of investment products focused on digital assets, has announced the imminent listings of its Exchange Traded Products (“ETPs“) on the Borse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG.

Trading in Bitcoin Zero and Ethereum Zero on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is to begin on Friday, October 1, 2021. Valour Cardano ETP, Polkadot ETP, and Solana ETP will follow shortly thereafter.

Russell Starr, Executive Chairman of DeFi Technologies commented, “Listing in Germany is a major event for DeFi and all of its shareholders. We anticipate substantial growth in our assets under management (AUM) as our products gain recognition globally. The Valour team has done an exceptional job creating these cutting-edge products.”

Located in Frankfurt, Germany, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is owned and operated by Deutsche Börse AG and Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG. With 90 percent of its turnover generated in Germany, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange is the world’s 12th largest stock exchange by market capitalization and the largest of the seven regional securities exchanges in Germany.

Bitcoin Zero and Ethereum Zero precisely track the price of BTC and ETH without charging management fees, making investment in the world’s best-known digital assets easier, more secure, and more cost-effective than all other options.

As of September 7, 2021, Valour has surpassed US$208 million in assets under management (“AUM“) trading on the Nordic Growth Market Stock Exchange (“NGM“). This achievement marks an exceptional first eight months of 2021, which has seen AUM grow more than 1,400% since the start of 2021. The Company expects growth in AUM to scale significantly higher with the listings on the much larger, by market capitalization, Frankfurt Stock Exchange.

By gaining exposure to digital assets via Valour, DeFi Technologies’ investors benefit from the standardisation, risk reduction and operational efficiency of a centrally-cleared product listed on a regulated stock exchange. For each ETP of Valour that is bought and sold on the NGM, Frankfurt Stock Exchange or other exchanges, Valour purchases or sells the equivalent amount of the underlying digital assets, meaning the ETPs are fully backed at all times.
