Swiss fintech firm Amun launched its BTCSHORT (BTCS) daily inverse token, which returns gains based on inverse price movements of bitcoin (BTC) in a given 24-hour period. The product complements a recent bitcoin inverse exchange-traded product (ETP) released by Amun in January and now overseen by sister-firm 21Shares following a March rebranding.
„Typically, these purchases are short-term in nature, usually on a daily basis, as the holder aims to move in quickly to leverage a near-term decline in bitcoin to make a positive return,“ the firm said in an announcement.
This token seeks to provide its target of -1x to the return of Bitcoin on a daily basis. Due to compounding of daily returns, holding periods of greater than 1 day can result in returns that are significantly different.
Launch Date: May 6, 2020
