ProShares Files S-1 Registration Statement for Spot Ethereum ETF: Roles of Fund Participants Expanded

ProShares Files S-1 Registration Statement for Spot Ethereum ETF, Reveals Key Fund Participants

ProShares has taken a significant step towards launching its spot Ethereum ETF by filing an S-1 registration statement on June 11. The filing sheds light on the various roles of key fund participants, providing insight into the inner workings of the proposed ETF.

One notable revelation from the filing is that Coinbase Credit will act as the trade credit lender for the company. This arrangement will allow ProShares to borrow Ethereum (ETH) and cash for transactions that exceed its trading balance, providing flexibility and liquidity for the fund.

In addition, Bank of New York Mellon has been appointed as the transfer agent for the ETF. The bank will be responsible for processing purchase and redemption orders, as well as maintaining ownership records for the fund.

The filing also outlines the roles of other participants, including BNY Mellon as administrator and cash custodian, Coinbase Custody as Ethereum custodian, Coinbase Inc. as prime execution agency, and Delaware Trust Company as trustee. ProShare Capital Management will serve as the sponsor of the ETF.

Notably, the filing allows for changes to be made to each role, with BNY Mellon’s administrator role initially set for a two-year term with annual renewals. ProShares also has the flexibility to add or terminate ETH custodians, cash custodians, and prime execution agents at any time, while Coinbase has the option to resign from its role as cash custodian.

The filing comes in the wake of the SEC’s acknowledgment of NYSE Arca’s proposed rule change on behalf of ProShares. If approved, the change will enable the exchange to list and trade shares of the fund. However, the SEC has yet to approve the proposed rule change for ProShares’ fund, with a decision expected to take weeks to months.

Bloomberg ETF analyst James Seyffart noted that the ProShares fund may not launch alongside competing spot ETH ETFs, which have already sought approval. The SEC approved rule changes for eight competing spot Ethereum ETF applications on May 23, but has yet to approve the corresponding S-1 registrations for the funds.

As the approval process unfolds, market participants eagerly await the launch of the ProShares spot Ethereum ETF, which promises to provide investors with exposure to the rapidly growing cryptocurrency market.
