Osprey Polkadot Trust Begins Trading as “ODOT,” Marking First Publicly Traded Polkadot Fund in US

With a market capitalization over $9.69 billion, Polkadot aims to create an entirely user-controlled, decentralized web 

FAIRFIELD, Conn. ― May 25, 2022 ― Osprey Funds, LLC, a premier crypto investment firm, today announced that the Osprey Polkadot Trust (ODOT) has commenced trading publicly via the OTCQX market. It is the first U.S. publicly traded fund to invest exclusively in DOT, the native token of the Polkadot network. 

Developed by a world-class team and led by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood, Polkadot is the base layer protocol that enables developers to build Web 3.0 with scalability, security, self-governance, and interoperability. It is one of the fastest-growing blockchain networks in the world with a market capitalization over $9.69 billion.

“Polkadot is a groundbreaking project aimed to create a completely decentralized web where users are in control,” said Greg King, CEO of Osprey Funds. “While DOT access was previously limited, ODOT allows more investors to conveniently, securely and cost-effectively tap into this innovative cryptocurrency.”

Originally launched in April 2021 for private placement, the Osprey Polkadot Trust is now accessible to all U.S. investors through traditional brokerage and IRA accounts. The fund is backed by best-in-class service providers, including Coinbase as custodian, Theorem Fund Services as fund administrator and KPMG as auditor.

In addition to ODOT, Osprey Funds offers the Osprey Bitcoin Trust (OBTC), the lowest-cost publicly traded bitcoin fund in the U.S., as well as the Osprey Algorand Trust, the Osprey Polygon Trust, the Osprey Solana Trust and the Osprey BNB Chain Trust for accredited investors.

Osprey Funds is waiving ODOT’s 2.5% management fee through at least January 1, 2023. For additional information, please contact info@ospreyfunds.io
