Article Summary


A synthetic covered call method will be used by YieldMax’s planned ETF, focusing on the Ether Option Income Strategy, as recently filed with the US SEC. Neither Ethereum nor any future Spot ETH ETF will be considered for direct investment in this new ETF.


YieldMax, a prominent ETF issuer, has filed with the US SEC to launch an ETF based on the Ether Option Income Strategy, diverging from the potential US launch of Spot Ethereum ETFs. The planned ETF will employ a synthetic covered call method to leverage the volatility of Spot Ethereum ETFs.

Main Points

The purpose of YieldMax’s ETF is to help investors benefit from Ethereum’s volatility by selling call options, aiming to increase revenue and manage risk exposure. Direct investment in Ethereum or any future Spot Ethereum ETF will not be allowed in this fund, with ZEGA Financial providing sub-advisory services.

YieldMax’s Bitcoin Option Yield Strategy ETF (YBIT) was launched last year with an expense ratio of 0.99% and trading on NYSE Arca. Recent filings by eight Spot Ethereum ETF applicants have led to clearer outlines of fees and seed investments, with an expected S-1 approval announcement by SEC Chair Gary Gensler this summer.


Despite the rise of Spot Ethereum ETFs and the evolution of crypto investment strategies, YieldMax’s unique approach with the planned ETF offers investors a different opportunity to navigate the cryptocurrency market while emphasizing risk management and revenue growth.
