Cryptoassets continue as a highlight in the financial market with the launch of ETFs in 2021. For the first time in history, bitcoin was formally traded in investment funds through stock exchanges in Brazil.

In addition to debuting on B3, cryptoasset stocks recorded the highest returns among ETFs traded. According to a survey by Economatica, funds with exposure to bitcoin and ethereum had returns of up to 108%.

In the ranking presented by Economatica, cryptoassets appear in the top four places on the list, with valuations between 58.72% and 108%, considering that survey took into account data until November 25, 2021.
