In this episode of ETF Spotlight, I speak with David Bartosiak, Zacks Stock Strategist and the Editor of Zacks Blockchain Innovators newsletter, about cryptocurrencies and blockchain related stocks.

Bitcoin price crashed about 65% last year and crypto linked ETFs had cratered as investors dumped risky assets due to changes in the macroeconomic environment. The Viridi Bitcoin Miners ETF (RIGZ) lost 87% and was the worst performing ETF of 2022.

Crypto stocks have rebounded strongly as Bitcoin has jumped about 40% this year. Crypto related ETFs are the best performing products among equity ETFs year-to-date.

The Valkyrie Bitcoin Miners ETF (WGMI - Free Report) is up almost 100%, thanks to surge in stocks like

Bitfarms (BITF - Free Report) and Argo Blockchain (ARBK - Free Report) . NVIDIA (NVDA - Free Report) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD - Free Report) are also among WGMI’s holdings.

The ProShares Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITO - Free Report) and Short Bitcoin Strategy ETF (BITI - Free Report) provide long and short exposures to bitcoin-linked returns using futures that trade on regulated exchanges.

Blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize many industries as it provides a secure way to record and verify transactions. The Amplify Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK - Free Report) invests in companies that are involved in developing or using blockchain technologies.

Dave also likes Camtek (CAMT - Free Report) and International Money Express (IMXI - Free Report) , which he owns in the Blockchain Innovators portfolio.
