ETPs are exchange traded products (funds (ETF), notes (ETN), or commodities (ETC)) which offer similar economics to the underlying cryptocurrency markets without the concerns of custody or owning the underlying asset. The underlying asset can be a cryptocurrency, index, fund, or other financial instrument. They trade on the exchange, similarly to stocks and their prices increase or decrease in sync with the underlying asset.
ETPs are securities that are registered under appropriate regulation and possess higher conditions of supervision. Opportunities and risks for ETPs and cryptocurrencies are similar, but the risks associated with holding of physical coins are mitigated.
