Investment Objective

The Fund seeks daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) the daily performance of the Index. The Fund does not seek to achieve its stated investment objective over a period of time greater than a single day.

Investment Strategy

The Fund is an ETF that seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing its assets primarily in cash-settled Bitcoin Futures Contracts (“Bitcoin Futures Contracts”) that trade only on an exchange registered with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the “CFTC”) which currently is the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (the “CME”), and cash, cash-like instruments or high-quality securities that serve as collateral to the Fund’s investments in Bitcoin Futures Contracts (the “Collateral Investments”). The Fund may also invest in reverse repurchase agreement transactions and shares of other investment companies registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “1940 Act”). The Fund does not invest directly in bitcoin. Rather, the Fund seeks to benefit from increases in the price of Bitcoin Futures Contracts for a single day.

The Fund generally will invest in Bitcoin Futures Contracts through its Subsidiary (defined below) and in Collateral Investments. At or around quarter-end, in order to qualify for treatment as a RIC under Subchapter M of the Code, the Fund may reduce the gross assets it has invested in its Subsidiary and invest in other investment companies and enter into reverse repurchase agreements. During these periods at or around quarter end, although the Fund will continue to seek daily investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) the daily performance of the Index, the Fund may not always achieve investment results, before fees and expenses, that correspond to two times (2x) the daily performance of the Index, and may return substantially less than that on days at or around quarter end when the Fund must reduce its exposure to the Subsidiary to qualify for tax treatment as a RIC. Because of this, there may be increased trading activity in the Fund’s Shares during such periods which could result in widening of bid-ask spreads and more greater premiums or discounts to the NAV of the Fund.

The investment adviser to the Fund and the Subsidiary is Valkyrie Funds LLC (the “Adviser” or “Valkyrie”). The investment sub-adviser to the Fund and the Subsidiary is Vident Advisory, LLC (d/b/a Vident Asset Management) (the “Sub-Adviser” or “Vident”). In serving as Adviser and Sub-Adviser to the Fund and Subsidiary, Valkyrie and Vident do not conduct conventional investment research or analysis or forecast market movement or trends. The Fund is classified as “non-diversified” under the 1940 Act.
