21Shares Rebrands ETF as 21Shares Core Ethereum ETF Amid Collaboration Shift

The amended prospectus document filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) late Friday disclosed the removal of Ark‘s name from the application, with the fund now renamed as the 21Shares Core Ethereum ETF.

Following this development, 21Shares has submitted a revised application for 21Shares Core Ethereum ETF. Moreover, ARK Invest will no longer be a partner for this ETF. However, a spokesperson for 21Shares assured that the company will maintain its collaboration with ARK Invest on the ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF launched in January and other existing futures products.

The decision by Ark comes after the successful launch earlier this year of spot-Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, with the $3.2 billion ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ticker ARKB) ranking fourth in assets. Despite this withdrawal from the Ethereum ETF race, Ark remains dedicated to its Bitcoin ETF endeavor.
